|The '68 Reverse is essentially the same as a Voodoo Strat without the Jimi neck plate: special reverse left-hand neck with large headstock (post-CBS style), left handed slant on bridge pickup, and three single-coil pickups with reverse staggered pole pieces. Provides the same string tension and signal path as Jimi's Right-turned-Left strats, but with a body shape and control locations that are familiar for a right-handed player.
Production of these guitars was limited to 2001 and 2002. As I understand it, the Hendrix foundation sued Fender over the release of the USA Voodoo Strat which included an image of Jimi on the neck plate. As a result, the Voodoo Strat production was halted and Fender ran out the remaining stock as the '68 Reverse Strat Special, sans Jimi's image on the neck plate (standard Fender plate).
