New release by Fender for the holidays.

Although this isn’t a lefty Strat, it bears features such as the reverse big 70’s headstock that started when the man himself flipped over a regular Strat to suit his left hand playing. I just read that reverse headstocks creates longer bass strings and enables easier bends on the treble strings. Pretty clever idea.

These are Mexico made guitars and retails for about US$900. Not bad for a signature model. Other features include special neck plate and Hendrix’s autograph on the headstock.

There’s a black one too.
