Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Reverse headstock offers far more than looks
- Classic Hendrix Strat tones via a reversed bridge pickup
- Modern neck dimensions for playing ease
Reverse headstock offers far more than looks Not many players have cut such an iconic stage presence as Jimi Hendrix and his flipped-over Strats. But the look of that reversed headstock brought Jimi way more than an identifiable look. It increased string length to the low strings, which adds tension to the string, giving you a more pronounced tone and a tighter feel. And the shorter string length of the higher strings lightens the string tension for easier bending. That's why if you want to nail Jimi's vibe, you need a Strat like his.
Classic Hendrix Strat tones via a reversed bridge pickup The American Vintage '65 single-coil pickups on the Jimi Hendrix Strat get you closer to his sound. The vintage-style construction ensures you'll hear a clear output, with plenty of Strat chime. But it's the reverse bridge pickup design that sets this trio of pickups apart. By flipping his guitars over, Jimi tilted the pickup in the opposite way from most Strats. By offering you the same construction, you'll attain tight, warm sounds, with enhanced upper harmonics.
Modern neck dimensions for playing ease The maple neck on the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster carries a modern fretboard radius of 9.5". This flatter design allows for much wider string bends than a vintage fretboard. It also works much better with the 6-saddle, vintage-style tremolo. And the neck's C-shape sits comfortably in your hand. It's thin enough for fast fretwork and Jimi-style thumb-over technique, but also substantial enough for comfortable chording. You'll get the best of Jimi's prized guitars with the features of today's great playing Fenders.
