What we say:

It's probably fair to say that there is no guitarist in history who is more iconic, loved and revered than James Marshall Hendrix. Seattle's finest son changed the way every single guitarist approached his instrument: there was simply Before Jimi and After Jimi.

Since he was noted for using a Fender Stratocaster far more than any other model, it's only fitting that Fender honour his memory and achievements with this tribute Stratocaster. He famously played left-handed using a right handed Strat restring backwards and played upside down. This is reflected in the 'mirror-image' vibe of this guitar: the headstock is reversed, as is the pickup layout. This isn't just to make a visual reference: things like string tension and harmonic sweet spots were all affected by these changes and many believe they actually contributed to the magic that came from Jimi's soul and fingers.

This model has period-correct 65 era single coil pickups, Jimi's signature on the back of the headstock, 'Woodstock' white finish and a custom 'Experience Hendrix' backplate. Plug one of these in: they are truly electrifying.

The guitar plays really well and it was well worth the wait all these years

Adam G. - 8/6/2020

Love playing this guitar, perfect sound quality and the guitar itself is well made and can?t complain at all for the price. The only issue I didn?t like was the stickers that Fender put on the guitar... they leave a sticky residue after peeling off which surely can be resolved easy with some stickers that don?t do this.

Not generally a Fender player, they all look basically the same regardless of place of manufacture, this particular model has a more individual look and I'm delighted with it.

Nigel P. - 13/12/2018

Great item, very unique A+

Anne M. - 29/10/2018

Comfortable, easy to play great sounding guitar. The fender 65 pickups are well suited to many styles from the obvious classic rock and blues to punk, new wave and alternative rock ( sonic youth, pearl jam, and r.h.c.p in my case).

Rich C. - 12/6/2018

Change the strings to the custom set that Jimi used - sit back - close you eyes and travel back in time - if you want more authenticity change the 5 way switch for a 3 way.
