"In the late 1960s, with the popularity of Jaguar and Jazzmaster waning, the $tratoca$ter became one of the prominent rock and roll guitars by virtue of it's use by Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton"

I thought it was the opposite.  I read in a few places that the Stratocaster popularity was on a downward slide until players like Hendrix & Clapton resurrected and eternally stamped the venerable Stratocaster’s approval.

I heard Clapton had his "people" hunting for good Jazzmasters, but then he was offered a whole pile of messed up strats, so he got the messed up strats, and made a few good ones out of 'em, and away went the Claptmasters.
I prefer their older stuff.
