Thought by many to be one of the most influential and innovative musicians of the 20th Century, Jimi Hendrix left behind an incredible legacy, despite only being in the limelight for approximately four years. It was during these four years that Jimi showed the world just what a Fender Stratocaster guitar was capable of, and helped to cement the guitar in the annals of rock and roll history for many decades to come.
Less a Guitar, More a Force of Nature
Renowned for playing a right-handed Fender Stratocaster reversed (as he was left-handed), Jimi developed his unique sound thanks to this state of affairs. Not only was the tension on his strings different to what you'd get on a normal Stratocaster, allowing for more outrageous bends on the upper strings and, but the bridge pickup was also angled in a way that would make the lower strings more articulate than usual, giving rise to his incredible trademark rhythm playing.
All New Jimi Hendrix Tribute Strat
With the new Fender Jimi Hendrix Strat you get a stunning right-handed Stratocaster, with a reversed headstock, and reversed bridge pickup, finished (in this case) with a 3 Tone Sunburst gloss coating. This stunning guitar is a fitting tribute to one of the quintissential musicians of the 20th Century.
Pure Vintage Pickup Power
This Fender Jimi Hendrix Strat comes equipped with a tro of Pure Vintage '65 Grey-Bottomed Single Coil pickups, helping you to recreate those classic mid-60's Strat tones. These pickups are reverse-mounted, and the bridge pickup is even at a reversed angle to usual, perfectly recreating the same kind of conditions as Jimi experienced in playing an "upside down" right-handed model.
As a fitting tribute to Jimi's penchant for playing right-handed guitars "flipped over", the new Fender Jimi Hendrix Strat features a reversed '70s-style headstock. This not only looks cool, but alters the relative length of the strings - giving you a unique playing feel, whilst adding more snap to the treble strings.
In addition to this, there's even a Jimi Hendrix signature on the back of the headstock, helping to commemorate Hendrix's venerable legacy.
