New Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaters Just Announced

Jimi Hendrix is one of the most popular electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame writes Jimi is "arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music".  Jimi was a lefty and he strung his Stratocaster guitar upside-down to play it.  When strung in reverse, the bass strings are longer which creates a tighter playing feel along with easier bending and vibrato on the treble strings.  

Fender has just released a limited edition of Jimi's Stratocaster in two different colors olympic white and black.  Both have a large ’70s-style headstock and they include the guitarist’s signature on the back, and are strung in reverse method for the true Jimi Hendrix look and playing feel.  

The pickups are three high quality American Vintage ’65 single-coil pickups with a reverse-slant bridge pickup, that creates a unique tone with tight, warm sound and enhanced upper harmonics and definition. The neck features highly versatile 9.5”-radius “C”-shaped maple neck with medium jumbo frets which create a flatter playing surface—ideal for chording while at the same time allowing you to bend notes with ease without fear of missing a fret during brilliant solos.

These guitars are crafted with unique tone and exacting specifications perfect for any Jimi Hendrix enthusiast.  Pick one up today before these really unique limited edition Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster guitars are gone.
