Jimi Hendrix is universally accepted across generations as the epitome of the guitar god. His story and body of work has elevated him from mere rock star to an American folk hero.
The scarcity of left-handed Stratocaster guitars in the late 1960s required Jimi to flip over right-handed guitars and restring them to suit his southpaw faculties. The resulting “reverse” headstock and reverse- angled bridge pickup gave Jimi’s Stratocaster a unique tonal response and a distinctive look. These custom features have been incorporated into the new Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster for the right-handed masses.
As Janie Hendrix herself put it, “Jimi is Fender and Fender is Jimi.” Jimi is indelibly linked to the Fender Stratocaster guitar. Nearly every significant recording and performance in his career was played with a Strat. He abused them, broke them and burned them but never strayed from his devotion to the instrument. He is without question the most influential player to ever pick up the Stratocaster.
Aspiring players will feel like they have the potential to follow in Jimi’s footsteps with this guitar and Jimi Hendrix devotees will find it to be
an irresistible addition to their collection. Advanced players will gravitate to its unique look, handmade craftsmanship and pro vintage- style components.
