Additional Information

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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This is an amazingly good take on a Hendrix Strat with a sensible compromise of keeping the right-handed body. It really gives you the best of both worlds that way---you get the comfort that Leo Fender (intended) put in the original design (the body contour) and the ability to reach the higher frets with the lower cutaway. If you're worried about this guitar being made in Mexico (as I was) I can tell you confidently to fear not! This is a quality instrument and you'll realize it from the moment you pick it up. It plays effortlessly and it's finish and fret work are flawless. The sound is pure Jimi with the deeper tone from the low E, A, and D strings given that, with the neck reversed, these strings are now longer compared to a regular right-handed Strat. I love the pickups because they are copies of the mid 60's lower output types and that makes them cleaner when you add distortion....which I certainly hope you do!! Fuzz Face or Big Muff either or is a must! This is an absolute MUST... Read more
This guitar sound great! it plays really well (after adjusting it to my like) it is a solid feeling and easy to play insturment. Now Some people will complain that it is not 'exactly' a replication of Jimi's guitar and that's correct. In my opinon it takes the best of both worlds and successfully melds them together. The reverse headstock which results in teh string lengths being the same as Jimi's probably makes the big differenct. Teh revers slant on the bridge pickup (compared to a normal right handed strat) makes a diffrence as well. Of course the Vintage 65 pickups probaably makes the biggest difference. It plays nice, sounds great, looks really cool and it has Jimi's signature on it as well as the authentic hendrix logo (on the neck plate). Will it make you sound like Jimi? Probably not, will it help you sound great, most likely.
As an observation: I think this is the way the Headstock should have always been, it just seems better.
This guitar just got releaased and I played one at my local GC , it plays very smoothly and easily attains early hendrix tones. I must say that I am thoroughly enjoying it. I was comparing it with the american standard strat ($1300) and I felt it sounded a bit less hot on one of the lead settings and besides that played just as well. I am no professional musician but feel that I know a great guitar when I play one and this Hendrix strat plays great. I own a fender tube , blues junior amp and a cyber twin fender amp and it sounds great through both of them. To me this guitar sounds like the axis bold of love tones (not sure what Jimi was using for amps then, probably marshall) clean and groovy. So far I'm very happy with this purchase
