The Legendary of Fender Stratocaster Rosewood Guitar
 
It is a familiar story. In the late 1960s, Fender’s R&D department was looking to produce some new guitar designs and options that they could have well-known musicians endorse and prominently use. Something different, something great sounding, something special. Thus, the Fender Stratocaster Rosewood guitars were born. Fender decided to build two prototypes of an all-rosewood Telecaster and an all stratocaster rosewood guitar. When completed, Fender would present the best of the two Telecasters to George Harrison of The Beatles and the best of the two stratocaster rosewood Guitars to Jimi Hendrix. Fender would fly them to Harrison and Hendrix in England. The legend says that each guitar had its own seat on the airliner. How cool is that? Unfortunately, the legend is not always the reality. Fender DID get George Harrison’s Telecaster to him in early 1969. He used it on the Beatle albums Abbey Road and Let it Be. And in the Let it Be movie, Harrison uses it in the studio and on the rooftop concert at Apple Records. Actually, that is kinda legendary, isn’t it?
 
We know this.Phillip Kubicki — who worked on both the George Harrison rosewood Telecaster and the Fender Stratocaster Rosewood Guitar — says that the Jimi Hendrix stratocaster rosewood was actually completed in April 1970, only a few months before Hendrix died .And apparently, Jimi never got to play the stratocaster rosewood guitar that was made especially for him. But there is one well-documented photo of the Jimi Hendrix Fender Stratocaster Rosewood Guitar.
 
 
The real stratocaster rosewood guitar made for Jimi Hendrix. Complete with large CBS-era headstock and ashtray bridge cover.

Other folks have asked why it was a right-handed stratocaster rosewood guitar, since Jimi Hendrix was left-handed. Since Fender built it especially for Jimi, why didn’t they build him a left-handed stratocaster rosewood guitar version? Is there anybody who know this? Pls email us the story, thanks!
