Product Description

Few moments in modern music have become as iconic as Jimi setting his hand-painted Strat ablaze 50 years ago at the Monterey Pop Festival. To celebrate that legendary performance, Fender has created the limited edition Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster! While the original guitar lives on in film, pictures and memories, this incredible recreation can be enjoyed in the hands of any Hendrix fan for years to come!

A trio of single-coil Stratocaster pickups give this Strat its classic Fender sound—bell-like and articulate, it has plenty of singing sustain for soloing. The ‘C’-shaped maple neck bears a vintage-style 7.25 inch-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.

I brought 4 fender Strats from AMS including the Hendrix Monterey Strat, this guitar is beautiful, to look at, play, hold feel. the pick up's are hot and give you a Hendrix quality tone, and screaming bridge pick up. the neck pick up has the nice warm tones. worth every penny!!! im still paying for it, and my black SSH Strat lol...

Very cool
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a wonderful wonderful Strat I’ve been playing for over 50 years and have oh and just about every type of vintage guitar reissues etc. etc. I have a few personal issues easily fixed… The neck unfortunately is way too thin for me underneath… So I replaced it with a fender maple neck from Mexico with soft v and medium jumbo frets I did the Tex-Mex variation on pick up selection and tone controls Tone for bridge and Neck pick ups and leaving the middle pick up wide open for tone. I highly recommend both of these changes… Not that the guitar isn’t wonderful the way it is stock... The neck pick up has a wonderful big open sound and the rear pick up is searing when overdriven ... I always loved the end of Monterey Pop with Hendrix pulled out this guitar I love the graphics and it’s about time fender put this one out… Forget the custom shop this one’s got it all… Let’s face it folks pretty much a Strat is a Strat a tele a tele ... and all the custom shop nonsense at $3000 plus…for under $1000 you can add all the mods to customize to your hearts content and still be in a wonderful price point Way to go fender

Great Guitar, Exceptional Customer Service
What is your opinion of this product?
I know this would be a great guitar simply because Fender makes great guitars, but they went above and beyond with this one! I buy guitars all the time, but this was the first one I've ever received without having to do any out-of-box setup...it plays perfectly and sounds awesome! It's also very solid and rugged, and delivers blasting tone. And, with just a flip of the pickup switch, I was able to get a very rich and deep, yet razor-sharp, blues tone. Kudos. ALSO, kudos to American Musical Supply. Their easy and convenient payment plans enable ordinary people to purchase extraordinary instruments and equipment; and with just a couple clicks of a button, the order is complete. As for the free two-day shipping, that's great...but I received my new Stratocaster at my front door only a day and a half after ordering it!

Love it
What is your opinion of this product?
Great tribute guitar to the greatest guitar player in history and to one of his iconic moments- he played one song on it and burned the original. That being said this strat plays and feels nice fit and finish was excellent, the pao fero neck feels as good or better than typical rosewood it’s lighter grain I toned down with neck oil. The setup seemed ok, but I’m a lefty so I changed anyway. I’d say it’s a good deal seeing how a custom shop version would be 10 to 20 times more expensive.

Nice , but...
What is your opinion of this product?
Overall, I love this guitar. It has excellent tone and feel. The but... is regarding the untightened bridge screws and jack nut. Also, mine is compelled to pull sharp in tuning almost immediately after adjusting. Graphics look cool, but are not painted. They are decals under the clear coat. Comes with extra light strings. As a major Jimi fan, I'm happy to own this M.I.M. Stratocaster.
