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.

Screws loose

Product Review

I bought this and have returned it. For 850.00 all the screws should’ve been tight. The gig bag was incredibly cheap, and poor quality. The guitar played amazing and sounded great. However I ordered a Gibson Les Paul from AMS, and it was perfect out of the box. The gig bag was very high quality, and it was less than 100 dollars between the 2.

It's a Strat!

Product Review

I am very pleasantly surprised with this guitar. I was a little apprehensive when making this purchase but once I got it home and started to play it I realized I made the right choice! It's definitely a strat! I loved the replicated art work on this guitar. I get a lot of compliments on it. I am glad I bought it.

Great sounding guitar

Product Review

The guitar sounds fantastic. I rated it four stars as the frets leave a bit to be desired, they were fairly sharp on the ends up and down the whole fret board. AMS as always gets 5 starts as they offered a solution that resolved the fret issue.

Really nic playing and sounding

Product Review

This is a nice guitar. Sounds like a Strat should. I bought this partially because the EOB Strat I got (which is great, too) doesn't really give a classic Strat sound. I wish it had a flatter radius neck and the Pao Ferro looks a little bit like dried out rosewood but that is minor considering how it sounds. Oh, and by the way, these are LOW output Strat pickups and do not have the middle reverse wound for hum canceling in positions 2 & 4. Very low compared to more modern Strats - great if you like pedals but not so great to drive an amp over the top. That said, they are sweet sounding. My only other issue is this is an expensive Mexican made Strat. The quality is great but it does seem to be a lot more than some of the other Mexi Strats in comparison for the Hendrix paint - Fender has also made it kinda difficult to find specs on this one to compare it to other guitars. But it does look cool and the graphics are well executed.
