Fender Commemorative Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster Electric Guitar Maple Fingerboard, Black with Gig Bag - 0145802306
Honoring the electrifying “Voodoo Chile” who popularized the Stratocaster guitar and its tremendous sonic flexibility, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster gives you the same fiery tone and playing feel to wield as your own. Full of incendiary vintage tone and classic style, this extraordinary instrument features signature touches and unique appointments based on his distinctive “flipped-over” guitars.

The foundation of Hendrix’s uniquely personal sound and playing style was his habit of flipping his guitars over and restringing them to accommodate his left-handed playing, resulting in a “reverse” headstock and bridge pickupâ features reproduced here in exacting detail. The “reverse” headstock produces a longer string length for the bass strings, creating a tighter playing feel along with easier bending and vibrato on the treble strings. A trio of unsurpassed American Vintage ’65 single-coil pickups includes a reverse-slant bridge pickup, producing uniquely inspiring tone with tight, warm sound and enhanced upper harmonics and definition. The highly versatile 9.5”-radius “C”-shaped maple neck with medium jumbo frets offers a flatter playing surfaceâ ideal for chording while simultaneously allowing you to bend notes to the stratosphere without fear of fretting out during scorching solos.

Commemorating Hendrix’s unrivaled legacy, the large ’70s-style headstock bears the guitarist’s signature on the rear. A unique neck plate displays a shoulders-up silhouette of the man himself and the engraved inscription, “Authentic Hendrix,” leaving no doubt as to the inspiration behind this guitar. Available in classic Olympic White or Black, both with chrome hardware and including a gig bag, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster is your chance to unleash your own “electric sky church” music.

Features

Reverse American Vintage Pickups
All three American Vintage ’65 “gray-bobbin” pickups with staggered-height pole pieces are flipped, uniquely altering their harmonic structure.

Reverse Headstock
The reverse headstock changes the length of the bass strings and creates a tighter playing feel; shorter treble strings make for easier bending and vibrato.

Reverse-Angled Bridge Pickup
The reverse-angled bridge pickup produces inspiring tight, warm tone with enhanced upper harmonics and definition.

Engraved Neck Plate
This signature Stratocaster model features a special neck plate engraved with a shoulders-up silhouette of Hendrix and an “Authentic Hendrix” inscription.

American Vintage ’65 pickups
To get the pure electric tone that is an elemental part of Hendrix’ legacy, we’ve equipped his signature model with three reverse-mounted American Vintage ‘65 single-coil Stratocaster pickups. This reverses the pole piece stagger, subtly changing the string-to-string volume balance for authentic Hendrix-style tone.

9.5' Fingerboard Radius
This instrument’s 9.5” radius is slightly flatter than a vintage-style radius—offering enough arc to provide a naturally comfortable fret-hand feel while making it easier to bend notes.
