I am in no way affiliated, I just went into GC yesterday and as I was browsing the wall for a guitar to try out a pedal I was buying, saw they had the 2015(?) Jimi Hendrix signature MIM Strat marked down from $899 to $689. I think it said closeout. It happened to be the black one they had there and I almost bought it to go with my white one, which I absolutely love. These are GREAT quality guitars IMHO. Check it out if you're looking for a bargain. I really am quite surprised every time I play mine; the quality, feel, fit and finish are all top notch.
