The Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster: As Bold As Love
With this Artist Signature Stratocaster, Fender honours one of the most innovative guitar players the world has ever known: Jimi Hendrix.
The sound of a generation
A musical journey
The Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster doesn't just sound authentic, it has the right looks too. As a left-handed guitarist, Jimi was accustomed to turning his right-handed guitars upside down. Fender have imitated this look by reversing the Strat's headstock. As an added bonus, this changes the string tension, keeping the low strings nice and tight, while making the high strings easy to bend. The Stratocaster's bridge pickup has also been reversed. Three American Vintage '65 single-coils, comprehensive tone controls and a 5-way pickup switch give you a wide range of options to experiment with.
