So myself being a Strat guy, Ive been trying to dig into the various vintage Strats Jerrys owned over the years (aside from Alligator).

Theres the 58, pictured here, which may or may not be the same as the Veneta one. He gave this Strat to David Hidalgo. Notice the F in the Fender decal is cutoff

David Hidalgo plays the same strat in this vid and recalls the story of how Jerry gave it to him

the Veneta Strat doesnt have the cutoff "F" but maybe that happened later

He also had a Rosewood Strat which he played on Blues From the Rainforest with Merl Saunders seen here:

this site (towards the bottom) claims its a 59, though Im not sure how they determined that

Maybe this is the same Strat he played in 1970?
