This may have been covered before. Watched him on AXTV the other day: Maple neck, truss rod slot/screw visible, no skunk stripe?

Looks like it was a maple cap instead of rosewood. I took this photo of his Woodstock Strat, and can clearly see the maple cap.

It also had a really wide neck joint!

Never knew about maple caps, seems kind of redundant.....

Jimi trade that Strat to Mitch Mitchell for a drum kit for Electric Lady Studios. It was sold later for a large amount.

"Never knew about maple caps, seems kind of redundant....."<br /> <br /> Without accessing it from the back, hence the skunk stripe, no way to install the truss rod.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

Once you understand how truss rods are installed, it all makes sense: the hole for the truss rod is not drilled. <br /> <br /> It's a channel that's routed into the neck. <br /> <br /> The rod is dropped into the channel, and the rout is filled with a strip of walnut (skunk stripe for a rear rout) or capped with a rosewood or maple fingerboard (front rout).

I seem to recall that Fender's Hendrix Voodoo Strats from the 90's have maple cap fretboards.
