LTD EDITION Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster, Pau Ferro Fingerboard


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, we 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`-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.
