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:

      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!!

        Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster:

        Ever since I went to the latest Experience Hendrix show, I fell in love with Kenny Wayne Sheppard's orange sparkle Stratocaster … It had the reversed headstock … and reversed bridge pickup… and a right handed body...By making those mod's, it is possible (for a right hander) to get close to the sound and playability you want…

        This Hendrix Stratocaster, goes even further… it has a maple neck and 65' vintage pickups. The neck is perfect and those are killer pickup's… You cannot go wrong with this guitar!

        …and as usual Ray and Mike at the guitar Center in Southington, CT are always great to work with.

            from NC

            Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster:

            I bought this just the other day and have really enoyed playing it. I had been shopping for a new or used electric guitar for about a month before I saw this. It sounds like the axis album to me tone wise, I just play with a friend occassionally for now, no gigging. All in all it sounds and plays smoothly and is easily one of the nicer strats I have played (I have not played any of the $1500 ones and up)sounds great with my blues junior and cyber twin amps

              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!

                          When I got this Ax the pickups were not that great so I went an got a set of Fender N3 noiseless Strat pickup set and now the sound tones are great 100% and did a full setup and a set of Ernie Ball Slinky number 10's this is the way to go on this Guitar

                            I had an American made Strats in the past (The Standard and Special) and also owned a Standard MIM Strat.
                            I read the reviews before buying the Hendrix Start and can honestly say that this guitar is in superior quality.
                            Could not find anything wrong with it.
                            Very well built, all 3 pickups sounds great, it stays in tune and more and more.
                            It is clear the Fender invested serious QC in this series.
                            I have finally found the Strat i'm going to keep.

                              This is just the classic guitar that I grew up with and I just love the rock sound that it has given me and the good music for my audience.

                                As soon as I saw the ad for the Fender Hendrix Strat, I fell in love with the Ivory White one and had to have it ! I called Steve S. at the Grand Rapids, Mi store and within 2 days ,it was on my front porch ! I love the play-ability,sound,looks and quality of this guitar !Guitar Center Service is second to none also ! I recommend Guitar Center to everyone !
