OVERVIEW

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of this milestone in music history.

It’s been 50 years since Jimi Hendrix took the world by storm with his incredible Monterey Pop Festival performance, which he concluded with the sacrificial burning of his now-iconic hand-painted Stratocaster. Destroyed during the fiery culmination of his set, this one-of-a-kind guitar survived only in photos and film. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this milestone in music history, Fender created the limited-edition Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster.

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 in.-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 Fender 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. Includes gig bag.

    Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    The pictures don't do this paint job justice. It's truly the best looking fender I ever owned, and I American, Japanese, Mexican, special signature models, etc. This is truly the best looking guitar I've seen from Fender. It plays excellent, especially compared to those Mexican models I have owned in the past. A huge step up. fingerboard needs a little oiling but the guitar plays well too. I would for sure buy it again.

      Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      Nice paint and finish on this guitar. The neck feels good but I'm not sold on the Pau Ferro wood fret board. Might take some time to get used too. The set up was pretty bad out of the box but that's not unusual. Spent Saturday morning doing a full set up and then playing and tweaking the neck relief and saddle height. Overall I'm fairly happy with my purchase.

        Comments about Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        Very nice guitar overall. Not sure about the fret board. It feel very dry to the touch. I much prefer rosewood. I'll get the lemon oil out and see if I can hydrate the fret board. Should play better then. Set up was not good at all, but that's to be expected. I pent an afternoon tweaking everything to my liking.The finish on the body, neck, and head stock is perfect, no complaints there. The electronics seem to be fine. No noisy pots or switches. Just your typical single coil hum, and not much of that really. I plan on going through and shielding all the pickup routs and see if I can reduce the hum a little more. But everything is pretty good as is. The pickups sound good, nice tone, but I'm thinking about swapping them out with Seymour Duncan Jimi Hendrix pickups.
        Overall, this is a very good guitar for the money and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a Stratocaster. A friend of mine has already ordered his!
