Overview

Honoring the electrifying "Voodoo Chile" who popularized the Stratocaster guitar and its tremendous sonic flexibility, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster gives you the same fiery tone and playing feel to wield as your own. Full of incendiary vintage tone and classic style, this extraordinary instrument features signature touches and unique appointments based on his distinctive flipped-over guitars.

The foundation of Hendrix's uniquely personal sound and playing style was his habit of flipping his guitars over and restringing them to accommodate his left-handed playing, resulting in a reverse headstock and bridge pickup features reproduced here in exacting detail. The reverse headstock produces a longer string length for the bass strings, creating a tighter playing feel along with easier bending and vibrato on the treble strings. A trio of unsurpassed American Vintage 65 single-coil pickups includes a reverse-slant bridge pickup, producing uniquely inspiring tone with tight, warm sound and enhanced upper harmonics and definition.

The highly versatile 9.5"-radius C-shaped maple neck with medium jumbo frets offers a flatter playing surface ideal for chording while simultaneously allowing you to bend notes to the stratosphere without fear of fretting out during scorching solos. Commemorating Hendrix's unrivaled legacy, the large '70s-style headstock bears the guitarist's signature on the rear. A unique neck plate displays a shoulders-up silhouette of the man himself and the engraved inscription, Authentic Hendrix, leaving no doubt as to the inspiration behind this guitar.

Available in classic Olympic White or Black, both with chrome hardware and including a gig bag, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster is your chance to unleash your own electric sky church music.

    Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster:

    The guitar has a very fast, and smooth neck, and sturdy body. My only issue was with the vintage tuners, and bridge. I could not get this guitar to stay in tune, so I replaced the Fender MIM bridge with an MIA bridge, and swapped out the Vintage tuners, for locking Schaller tuners (Lefty since it has a reverse headstock). Now, I cannot put this guitar down, and it holds its tuning. Well worth the investment, with a little tweaking.

        This is the 7th guitar in my small collection of fine instruments and it is fantastic. My wife gave this to me for my 56th birhtday last night. I was tickled with the "upside down" head, if you will. The sound, tone, feel and such really added a lot to the tunes that I have written. VERY versatile! Fender Stratocaster is muy excellent! Thank you!

              Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster:

              I have over 20 Fender Stratocasters. I did not think the reverse neck and reverse angled bridge pick-up would make that big of a difference. I was wrong. The only way I can describe the sound is that it has a "different vibe" than my other Stratocasters. It sounds great through my favorite amp; a tweed Fender Blues Junior. Add an Ibanez Tube Screamer and any Wah pedal and you are in business for any sound you need with this guitar and simple amp set-up.

              Please do not knock this Stratocaster because it is a Mexican made. I mostly buy American made guitars. I can say that this guitar is solidly built. The Jimi Hendrix neck plate just adds to how cool this guitar is.

              I recommend this to any one looking for a unique Stratocaster that is not just for playing Jimi Hendrix songs.

              Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster:

              As mentioned...the guitar is built solidly.
              It looks amazing! Full of Jimi-Vibe!
              My only gripe....the standard single coil pickups that
              are-and will always be prone to 60 cycle hum!
              This is not the 1950's....we don't have to deal with this!!
              The advances in Noiseless pickup technology have skyrocketed! And you don't lose any of the revered Strat tones with these....in spite of what the silly purists say!
              I installed a quality set of noiseless pickups in this guitar and now...I'm totally in love with it!! I've got all the great Jimi tones with NO noise!!

                  Tone Tone tone move over Rover and Let Jimmy Take over. Excellent American Made vintage 65 pickups. Plays Great!! Sounds sooo sweet
                  That reverse mounted bridge pickup does really make a difference in sound, Compared to my "Blacked Out" Strat. Lovin it in many ways. Thanks Fender
