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.

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.

Absolutely Stunning!!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar is fantastic, the only things keeping it from being 5 stars is the gloss neck and no case. But the guitar it self is flawless. Once the strings were stretched and tuned it stayed that way even through heavy trem use. Highly recommend and so glad this was my first Fender.

My Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratacaster
What is your opinion of this product?
I just received this gourgous Guitar from American Music supply to add to my wall of fame of signature guitars I have both the black and white Jimi guitars in custom wall cases with his image on the inside of case back wall and have placed the Monterey right beside them proudly. Have a SRV and Eric Clapton American made guitars as well . I have bought from musicians friend and guitar center ,Sam ash and sweet water in the past and look at reviews about guitars made in Mexico versus American and it's interesting that a few are bad reviews but more are good reviews, mine is picture perfect in fit and finish and they look great on the wall in their cases kept in mint condition condition for the future. I have a bedroom full of amps and guitars with all four walls covered in a lot of Brands that look great and no room for more unless I get a bigger room . Paul Stanley, BB King, Santana even James Burton blue paisley Telecaster in a kick butt picture case , and Eddie Van Halen yellow striped
