Description

Bought in as Fender B Stock. This model has a small ding on the headstock. Supplied with the usual Fender two year warranty.

Honouring the electrifying "Voodoo Chile" who popularised 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 during scorching solos.

Commemorating Hendrix's unrivalled 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.

"REVERSE" HEADSTOCK

Mirroring Hendrix's penchant for playing right-handed guitars flipped over, the reverse 70s-style headstock on this guitar alters the relative length of the strings - creating a unique playing feel while adding more snap to the treble strings.

REVERSE BRIDGE PICKUP

In an especially authentic touch, the single-coil bridge pickup on this signature model is mounted with a reverse slant, generating warm sound with enhanced upper harmonics and definition on the bass strings while adding girth to the treble strings.

HEADSTOCK SIGNATURE

The venerable legacy of Hendrix is commemorated in this instruments reversed headstock, complete with Hendrix's signature.

ENGRAVED NECK PLATE

This signature Stratocaster model features a special neck plate engraved with a shoulders-up silhouette of Hendrix and an "Authentic Hendrix" inscription.

REVERSE-MOUNTED PICKUPS

To get the pure electric tone that is an elemental part of Hendrix legacy, we've 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.

9.5" FINGERBOARD RADIUS

This instruments 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.
