Product Description

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 inch-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 inscription, ‘Authentic Hendrix,’ leaving no doubt as to the inspiration behind this guitar.

Very nice for price
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
Once you get this setup (the factory setup is horrible), this thing plays great! I love the sound of the pickups. The next has a nice contour. I did sand the neck with 1500 grit sand paper to thin out the neck finish. The tuners are junk! Plan to replace them if you buy this, or your guitar will not stay in tune I replaced them with Schaller locking tuners. I also replaced the nut with a LSR nut. I also plan to replace the bridge. I realize that is sounds like I basically replaced every part, but you have to keep in mind this is an import model. They put cheaper parts on these. However, the overall guitar is definitely worth the money. The upgrades I have done have made huge improvements to this guitar. It was a great buy!

What is your opinion of this product?
My hopes were high, it's a Hendrix signature after all.... Far surpassed what I was expecting! Tone tone tone! String tension and reverse bridge pickup... Unreal!

NICE GUITAR, LOVE IT
What is your opinion of this product?
I had to fix the plug to be able to keep the guitar cord in place, t was easy as can be. The factory does not do a good job setting up the guitar, but I always take guitars in for the setup anyway. Sorry but I hate fabric guitar cases, they don't protect anything.

It's a "Jimi-Thang"....
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm a proud owner of this guitar! It's a well made instrument. I did, however, need to change the pickups, as they are standard single coils complete with customary 60 cycle hum......I CANNOT have that! I put in some great Noiseless pickups (DiMarzio Virtual Vintage and Area series) and now this guitar is perfect!! It's got Hendrix vibe all over the place! I dig it!

LOVE THE GUITAR WORTH EVERY PENNY
What is your opinion of this product?
This is loosely based on I'm guessing the "68 black beauty strat jimi made famous that being said I don't know why fender didn't do an American run but I'm sure its a money thing cause jimi didn't play no Mexican strat because there was no such animal.That being said the guitar I love it plays great the finish on mine has a darker tint on neck than the stock photos flawless black body hated the pickups middle and neck fine for the vintage strat tone but bridge on mine thin and shrill so swaped the bridge for s.d. hot rail bought this beast right to life and added two springs to bridge did set up on it so now can get nice vintage strat tone and with flick of switch bam jimi to maiden and every thing in between.gotta say for non usa cant beat it would buy again and again.

I tried guitar at a retailer but didn't like so I ordered from AMS and this guitar was totally different action is superb . Like the feel of the reverse headstock more tone in the Mids Played it through a orange amp,fender deluxe ,mustang and Marshall all sounded impressive . This MIM guitar is very special thanks to AMS and don't forget Jimi Hendrix with his innovation on this guitar

Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster (2015)
What is your opinion of this product?
Out of the box the aesthetics are pretty nice, the pics are right there not much to add, it's a beauty. 1/4 turn of the truss rod to flatten the neck, low action, no buzz, well balanced, pretty good intonation, the neck is very comfortable. Tuning a reverse headstock is a little awkward. Played some blues, bent some strings - it stayed in tune. Plugged into a '68 DRRI, Marshall Haze and an EVH 5150... sounds like a strat. Positions 2 and 4 were not as honky as I'm used to hearing, more mids in these pickups. Overall, this is an excellent version of a Stratocaster, at $900 it's worth every penny. My only complaint, gig bag instead of a case, imho a Hendrix Strat rates a case even if it's mim.
