But, what seemed like an interesting idea at first materialised into this:
A Jimi Hendrix Signature line consisting of three different beginner’s packs of Stratocaster clones, cheap mini-amps and cheesy “case candy”. There was talk of a US-made model, but this never made it onto Gibson’s website.
Most people expected Gibson to come out with a nice, affordable-for-the-mere-mortal version of Jimi’s very tasty painted Flying V.
A storm broke loose amongst the guitar lovers in the internet-community; as a result the whole project was scrapped abruptly at the very last moment.
