NEW - 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. Mirroring Hendrix’s penchant for playing right-handed guitars flipped over, the reverse ’70s-style headstock on this guitar complete with Hendrix’s signature alters the relative length of the strings—creating a unique playing feel while adding more snap to the treble strings.
In an especially authentic touch, the single-coil bridge pickup on this signature model is mounted with a reverse slant, generating warmsound with enhanced upper harmonics and definition on the bass strings while adding girth to the treble strings. To get the pure electric tone that is an elemental part of Hendrix’ legacy, Fender has equipped his signature model with three reverse-mounted American Vintage ‘65 single-coil Stratocaster pickups.
This reverses the pole piece stagger, subtly changing the string-to-string volume balance for authentic Hendrix-style tone. This instrument’s 9.5” radius is slightly flatter than a vintage-style radius—offering enough arc to provide a naturally comfortable fret-hand feel while making it easier to bend notes. This signature Stratocaster model features a special neck plate engraved with a shoulders-up silhouette of Hendrix and an “Authentic Hendrix” inscription.
