This is creating a bit of a stir everywhere, with the move being condemned pretty universally.

Given Gibsons history of litigation, this is pretty hypocritical of them.

The Hendrix family is selling him out right and left. It's sad to see.

Fender should be making Hendrix guitars, he usually played Strats. Janie is crazy, let Leon have some say in the company.

Uh, Jimi Hendrix played Strats. Made by Fender. Gibson is pulling a disgusting move here. Plus, the guitars look stupid.

And check it out - they can't even spell "package" right. They spell it "pakage." Dopes.

What a PR nightmare. Gibson have now removed all references to the Hendrix Strat from their website. I wonder if these will ever see the light of day...

This is one of Gibson's dumbest moves. I hope Fender gets some justice. I don't use Gibsons because they have never made a decent Bass guitar.

Stuff like this makes me wonder if, when you call the Gibson 800 number, a phone rings in a home for the criminally insane. Between the hit-and-miss quality of their instruments and their ever-increasing bullying problem, I'm amazed they survive. Too bad. They USED to be a great company.

If Gibson want to manufacture a Hendrix guitar,then make a Gibson guitar that Jimi actually did use,such as the flying V guitar or the white Les Paul (SG shape) 3 pickup fretless wonder guitar, that he sometimes used!!! To make a Stratocaster guitar by Gibson, is totaly ridiculas and not believable!

Janie has lost her mind. But Fender also deserves a kick in the ass for releasing that ridiculous 'backwards' strat years ago!!! Why in God's name don't they simply release a nice 68-69 style strat WITHOUT THE INSANE CUSTOM SHOP PRICE TAG...???? I'd be willing to pay $600-$700 for a nice copy of a Woodstock era strat.
