Jimi Hendrix Tribute Stratocaster, made in the USA between 1997-2000
In the late 1960s, Jimi Hendrix demonstrated an amazing technique and stretched the sonic possibilities of the solid body guitar and, in the process, changed rock music–forever.
In honor of this amazing talent Fender Musical Instruments and Experience Hendrix, LLC (the family of Jimi Hendrix) authorized & released released the Jimi Hendrix Tribute Stratocaster. “Modeled after the same Strat that Jimi played at his historic performance at the Woodstock Music Festival of August 1969, the instrument was bound to delight generations of guitar players and music history enthusiasts for years and years,” noted Jack Shelton, senior vice president of sales at Fender.
Interestingly, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster, which was built in Fender’s factory in Corona, California, is a left-handed model strung right-handed and reversed, with the strap button on the lower horn, so that right-handed players would appear as Jimi did when looking at themselves in the mirror. The guitar, which is available in Olympic White, also boasts a maple neck with a large late-60s-style headstock, classic Schaller “F” tuners and woven strap. The pickup configuration is unique–three reverse staggered vintage Stratocaster pickups that are positioned perfectly for emulating Jimi Hendrix classics such as “Wild Thing,” “Purple Haze” or even “The Star Spangled Banner.”
