Overview

It’s been 50 years since Jimi Hendrix took the world by storm with his incredible Monterey Pop Festival performance, which he concluded with the sacrificial burning of his now-iconic hand-painted Stratocaster. Destroyed during the fiery culmination of his set, this one-of-a-kind guitar survived only in photos and film. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this milestone in music history, Fender created the limited-edition Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster.

A trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups give this Strat its classic Fender sound—bell-like and articulate, it has plenty of singing sustain for soloing. The “C”-shaped maple neck bears a vintage-style 7.25 in.-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-sized frets for a playing feel just like the original. The six-screw synchronized tremolo is perfect for unleashing dive-bombs and other sonic expression. Other period-correct touches include the vintage-style tuning machines, strap buttons, trem arm and dual-wing string trees.

An homage to Hendrix’s spectacular Strat—right down to the hand-painted nail-polish artwork that burned its way into our memories—and as a special touch Fender added an exclusive etched Hendrix neck plate. Carrying on the same free-spirited, psychedelic vibe of the original, and indeed Hendrix himself, the Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster is sure to set your music ablaze. Includes gig bag.

    Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    The guy from St Louis is a crybaby. I have American and MIM Strats. American strats are becoming overrated. Also, most of the parts are made here and assembled in Mexico. Then they go for inspection. MIM Strats are well made.

    Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Don't let the fact that this is a MIM deter you from this instrument! This guitar is so much fun to play. Right out of the box I just had to look at it for a bit because this is a legendary guitar! Even though some people might not like it for being a MIM and not American, you need to remember that some people can't afford too much and the only other one of these from fender currently retails for $20,000. This guitar sounds beautiful, the playing feel is great, and overall this is a beautiful instrument both visually and sonically.

      Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      This is one of my favorite looking guitars and I've always wanted one so I was really happy when fender released it. This is my fist MIM strat but it plays quite nice and has a nice tone to it. Plugged in with a TS10 it gets a great overdrive sound. Compared to my John Mayer Sig strat it is a bit heavy and the neck is a little stickier But for a Mexican made I'm quite impressed. Love the guitar

        Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        Don't know what the guy below/above me is thinking. Mine plays true and was intonated very well from the factory. Pretty sure this is just a classic series 60's with a different paint job, plays like a dream, would gig it. On the bad it does have some QC issues, theres a scuff mark inside the paint thats been clear coated into the guitar, and my input jack plate screws were too small so that wiggles around. But it plays really well and its the same cost as the 60's series so if you want a cool paint job, go for it.

        Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        I bought this as soon as it was released, unsure if I'd keep it. I'm pleased to say that not only is it a beautiful guitar, it plays very well for a Mexican made Strat. Smooth action and a very nice tone. I did have to raise the low E a bit to get rid of some buzz, but it's played flawlessly since. If you want a nice tribute to Jimi on a budget, this is a great axe.

        Fender going after profits over quality

        By Hendrix Fan

        from Cincinnati Ohio

        Pros

        • Looks good

        • Flat Sound

        Best Uses

        • Looking at in a case

        Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        I played this guitar and it has the feel of something made in Mexico. The fretboard felt rough and the finish on the back of the neck made it feel sticky. Fender should come out with a true signature replica based on their custom vintage line. Their bottom line may be hurting right now, but their just fueling the exodus by putting pieces out like this.

        Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        This is a GREAT axe!!! I bought one for my 11 year old son who loves John Mayer as a Christmas present, but as soon as I got it and played it I ordered one for myself. It has AMAZING tone with very low 60 cycle hum, AWESOME artwork and craftsmanship. I have owned MIM strat before and have always been impressed but at this price point I thought Fender was pushing their luck, but was pleasantly surprised. The only downside (which is a personal preference) is the 7.5" radius fretboard and tiny vintage frets.

          Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

          I always loved the guitar that Hendrix burned during his last number at Monterey in 1967. So when I saw at it an affordable price, I ordered one. Nice looking and plays nice. Some have said an American custom shop version would be better. Well this guitar was made and priced for guitar players, not collectors. Cool axe for a nice price. I guess these are overwhelmingly popular as I waited over a month after I ordered it. But worth the wait.
