American Vintage '65 Strat pickups Period-correct pickups for even feel and tone

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 pickup -- 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 surface -- 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 read more 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 deluxe gig bag, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster is your chance to unleash your own "electric sky church" music.

"Great guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I always think that if you're going to buy a signature series guitar that you should buy it not because of the artist's name on it but because it's what you're looking for in a guitar. With that being said it's always nice when both are present. The Hendrix signature on the headstock is just too cool, the likeness of him on the neck plate and reverse headstock also equally cool. This guitar however has enough going for it to stand on it's own. First off I purchased the olympic white which is aged along with the pick up covers, and knobs.Its kind of a yellowish creme color that's really vintage looking. The neck is a soft C and easy to play and also aged, it is however heavily urethaned and not real fast out of the box but I adjusted to it real quickly.The reverse head stock also takes a bit of getting used to but again you'll adjust to it. The pick ups I really like, the tone is old school. They remind me of my first Strat say 1979, they have the right amount of power and tone,they're not thick like Texas Specials, and also not thin like regular single coils.The neck adjustment was easy and when set up a bit it plays like butter. I think this is about my 10th purchase from zZounds and as always I received it in 2 days.Bottom line a great guitar regardless of Jimi on it or not.
