        Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar

        What Fender Have to Say:

        It's been 50 years since Jimi Hendrix took the world by storm with his incredible Monterey Pop Festival performance, which he concluded with the sacrificial burning of his now-iconic hand-painted Stratocaster. Destroyed during the fiery culmination of his set, this one-of-a-kind guitar survived only in photos and film. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this milestone in music history, we created the limited-edition Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster. A trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups give this Strat its classic Fender bell-like sound and extremely articulate, it has plenty of singing sustain for soloing. The "C"-shaped maple neck bears a vintage-style 7.25"-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-sized frets for a playing feel just like the original. The six-screw synchronized tremolo is perfect for unleashing dive-bombs and other sonic expression. Other period-correct touches include the vintage-style tuning machines, strap buttons, trem arm and dual-wing string trees. An homage to Hendrix's spectacular Strat-right down to the hand-painted nail-polish artwork that burned its way into our memories-and as a special touch we've added an exclusive etched Hendrix neck plate. Carrying on the same free-spirited, psychedelic vibe of the original, and indeed Hendrix himself, the Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster is sure to set your music ablaze.

        Monterey Body

        Body

        The Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster is shaped to the instantly recognisable double-cutaway Strat body, with ergonomically designed contours that make it one of the most comfortable guitars ever created. The body is crafted using alder, which is a lightweight yet tonally balanced wood that enhances the Strat's versatile character. As part of the homage to Hendrix's exceptional Strat, the body is adorned with the same eye-catching hand-painted nail polish artwork that travels across the upper bout, across the pickguard and lower bout. A protective layer of gloss polyurethane preserves the finish for as long as possible.

        Neck

        Fitted to the body is a maple neck, which has been shaped to the comfortable "C" shape profile to offer a reassuringly substantial feel in the hand without becoming cumbersome. Married to the neck is a gorgeous pau ferro fingerboard, which is home to 21 frets that are adorned with aged white dot position inlays. At the top of the neck is a synthetic bone nut, which maintains string position and spacing dutifully. The 7.25-inch fingerboard radius guarantees that string bends are executed smoothly, whilst accommodating speedy licks and solos. The neck plate on the rear of the guitar features a unique "Authentic Hendrix" etching, complete with artist portrait.

        Pickups

        A trio of single-coil Strat' pickups fitted in the neck/middle/bridge positions create authentic Fender tones. From crisp and clear highs to chunky mids, the pickups showcase the versatility of the alder body brilliantly to produce a rich variety of tones. The 5-way pickup selector switch opens up a universe of tones for you to explore, whilst the neck and middle pickup tone controls allow you to shape and sculpt your sound. From funk to soul, blues to country, the Hendrix Monterey Strat' allows you to master any genre.
