Overview

Debuting in 2015, the Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster is part of the Fender Artist Series and offers custom modifications to capture the unique characteristics of Jimi's Olympic White Stratocaster that he played at Woodstock in 1969. Most notably featuring a reversed headstock and reverse-angle bridge pickup, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster maintains a non-reversed pickguard and controls for ease of use. The Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster also features classic vintage touches, such as a C profile neck with a flat fingerboard for better note bending, Fender American Vintage '65 single-coil pickups for that classic tone, and either Olympic White or Black finishes with a neckplate featuring a silhouette of Jimi Hendrix himself. Jimi's idiosyncratic use of traditional music gear was a staple of his sound, and those tone-bending unusual features are available in this model.

    Yeah- this guitar is the bomb. If you wanna do Hendrix, this is it. The reverse headstock and bridge pickup really cover the *sonic* territory of Hendrix. Hint: use Hendrix gauge strings -10, 13, 15, 26, 32, 38, to really nail it. The gauges were not arbitrary. Roger Mayer, Hendrix’s pedal and amp a…
