Lovies Guitars is offering up this 1997 Fender Artist Series Jimi Hendrix Tribute Stratocaster in a Timeless Olympic White Finish! In the late 60’s, Jimi Hendrix single-handedly stretched the sonic possibilities of the guitar and, in the process, changed rock music–forever. In his gifted hands, the instrument became a major vehicle of expression. It talked, cried, exorcised and exulted as he glided with exuberance and ease from searing, blistering, electric blues to feedback-laden, free-form jazz to smoothly crafted torch ballads. In honor of the guitar-wielding legend, Fender Musical Instruments and Experience Hendrix, LLC (the family of Jimi Hendrix), have just released the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster. “Modeled after the same Strat that Jimi played at his historic performance at the Woodstock Music Festival of August 1969, the instrument is 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.
For starters, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster, which is 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 boasts a maple neck with a large late-60’s-style headstock, classic Schaller “F” tuners and woven strap. The icing on the cake, however, is the pickup configuration–three reverse staggered vintage Stratocaster pickups that are positioned perfectly for boning up on Jimi Hendrix classics such as “Wild Thing,” “Purple Haze” or even “The Star Spangled Banner.” This Iconic Axe is in Excellent Shape with a fair bit of pickguard wear, a few minor dimples on the back and sides of the body, a couple super light marks on the back, some minor weather checking on the headstock and a small mark on the neck from a stand, easy 9.5/10! ALL Original-NO Breaks, Cracks or Repairs. Includes a Hard-Shell Case and a Jimi Hendrix Replica Strap!!
