Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster
It goes without saying that Hendrix was one of the most unique and influential artists of all time. The new Jimi Hendrix strat aims to recreate the magic of his legendary, game changing tone. In order to be as authentic as possible, Fender has recreated the look and sound of Hendrix' "Up Side Down" Strat. Features include a reversed bridge pickup, reverse headstock with a Jimi Hendrix signature on the back, and an engraved neck plate with a silhouette of the man himself.
- Iconic Look & Sound
- Engraved Hendrix Neck Plate
- Reverse Single Coil Bridge Pickup
A large part of Hendrix' unique tone was due to the fact that he strung his stratocasters upside down so he could play left handed. The new Hendrix strat recreates this iconic look with a reverse headstock and "flipped" bridge pickup. More than just looks, the reverse headstock changes the length of strings giving a unique feel. The longer bass strings will have increased tension, giving them a tighter rhythmic punch and could lend itself well to drop-tunings. The shorter treble strings will be looser, great for bending.
"Upside Down" Bridge Pickup
An additional effect of flipping his stratocasters, the pickups where also upside down, this played a large role in creating the unique tone that Hendrix became known for. A set of American Vintage '65 single coils complete with a reverse bridge pickup reproduces this tone with increased warmth and fatness on the high strings, while the lower strings reap the benefits of increased hamronics and bite.
More then just a recreation, the new Hendrix strat features a modern "C" shape neck with a 9.5" radius, an engraved neck plate depicting Jimi's silhouette, and a signature on the back of the headstock. The new Fender Jimi Hendrix Strat delivers
