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.

Great guitar

What is your opinion of this product?
I was skeptical about any MIM strat for this price but not the bullet and bought it anyway. Once I set it up to my liking I really liked the way it played. Has a great sound if you know what this guitar is supposed to sound like. It’s a vintage sound so you’re not going to get a huge thick sound. I’m not a fan of the super shiny finish on the neck but it’s not a deal breaker. It would have been nice to have a hard case option for extra cash.

I love it
What is your opinion of this product?
Got this because of this color and reverse headstock. This guitar plays like butter and the sound qualities with the reverse headstock and reverse pickup speaks volumes. I wouldn't mind getting another but I first have to play off this one LOL

The only Jimi artist guitar worth buying
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar delivers on the hype. The pickups and the reverse headstock bring you back to the setup that Jimi might have had on his guitars. In case you are wondering the answer is "yes", the longer scale for the low E and A strings (via the reverse head stock) do make a huge difference. It is just the way jimi would have had. I could go on and on but I can just assure you that you won't regret this purchase. AMS makes it super easy with their payment plans. Put some 11-56 strings like I have or some 10-52 strings and listen to the low E punch you in the face.

All I can say is "Wow!" I am usually a tele fanatic but this Jimi strat is Great!
What is your opinion of this product?
Picked this stratocaster up from AMS and while it is a Mexican made strat the quality and feel are great. I did purchase the Seymour Duncan strat set and it sent this thing into the stratosphere (pun intended) as far as playability and sound quality. The tight radius fingerboard I was leary of at first but now I love the ease of chording and bending on this thing, all in all a great "keeper" guitar modeled after a true genius and legends' original.

Great Fender guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
The Jimi Hendrix guitar is a really nice player guitar that I bought 10 months ago. Goes along with any amp and gives a variety of different sounds that a fender guitar does with ease. Plays very good to the fingers and I play for hours when I do. This guitar might be made in Mexico but you would not no it if blind folded. Well worth the bucks. And the people are friendly at American music I don’t shop any where else. Thankz

Very nice for price
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!
