^ As Hendrix's recording career progressed he made greater use of customized and custom voiced fuzz units or reworked Fuzz Faces.

He started playing Stratocasters in 1966 and thereafter used it almost exclusively for his stage performances and recordings.^ His guitar of choice however, and the instrument that became most associated with him, was the Fender Stratocaster , or "Strat".

^ He bought his first Stratocaster in 1965 and thereafter used it almost exclusively for his stage performances and recordings.

^ The headstone for Jimi contains a depiction of a Fender Stratocaster guitar, the instrument he was most famed for using —– although the guitar is shown right-side up, and Jimi, being a left-hander, played it upside down.

.Hendrix bought many Strats and gave some away as gifts.^ Hendrix bought dozens of Strats and gave many away (including one given to ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons).

The misnomer was repeated enough times to be considered a factoid. The only surviving advert for the band, however, billed them as The Blue Flame. Hendrix himself referred to the band as The Blue Flame in his 1969 interview with Nancy Carter, as did John Hammond.
