Hey!

I am looking for a standard fender stratocaster, and I came to wonder:
Which color did Jimi Hendrix use the most on his strats?

P.S I mean solid colors, not hand painted flowers or anything like that.

The majority of his strats were white with either maple or rosewood fretboards. His Woodstock strat, the one which he his most famous for, is white with a maple fretboard.

Olympic white, maple fretboard.

Entirely coincidental, just my favorite color scheme.

okay to solve all of the confusion his strat was ARCTIC white. the strat in that pic is the same one i have and i compared the finish to hendrix's and it was exactly the same. so arctic white with a maple fretboard at woodstock, arctic white with rosewood fretboard for the are you experienced days, and black with a maple fretboard for the band of gypsy's days. im not too sure about the axis or electric ladyland days. but keep the tremolo on!

How's wanting a certain color mimicking, maybe he just likes it. Either way it's better he's mimicking a great guitarist like Hendrix and not the guys from Fall Out Boy and to answer your question I believe it was Arctic White with a maple fretboard.
