Jimīs new Stratocaster

Hi, I  noticed on Instragram and on Colbert that Jim is using a Stratocaster now. Does anybody have better pics of the guitar. Thanks in advance !!!

I just saw that.  I don't think I've ever seen Jim play a Fender?

he used to play a strat more frequently pre-2006 or so (i think anytime on okonokos is a strat song). most recently it's been sprinkled in here and there like on like a rolling stone at obh3.
some get stoned, some get strange, sooner or later it all gets real.

The one he played on Colbert was decorated with a lot of dots (or even beads) would be nice to know if this is new Strat or if he just did some work on his old one......

Talked to a guy who works at the Gibson factory in Memphis this weekend and he said they just finished up a new custom order for Jim, but couldn't tell me more than that.

Jim historically has used a Strat on:
Anytime as someone said,
Smokin from Shootin used to be Strat only
How Do You Know he played on a Strat in the 2004-2008 era as well.

As far as more, I'll try to see what i can find.

Here he is with a 12 string electric (I think Ovation?)
