Hendrix's ''Flipped-Over'' Style

The foundation of Hendrix's uniquely personal sound and playing style was due to his habit of flipping his guitars over and restringing them to accommodate his left-handed playing style, resulting in a ''reverse'' headstock and bridge pickup - features reproduced on this model in exacting detail.

The ''reverse'' headstock produces a longer string length for 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 including a reverse-slant bridge pickup, providing uniquely inspiring tone with tight warm sound with both enhanced upper harmonics and definition. The highly versatile 9.5'' radius C-shaped Maple neck with medium jumbo frets offers a flatter playing surface, ideal for chords while simultaneously allowing you to bend notes during scorching solos. Experiance the true Hendrix playing style and tone with this unique signature model.

About Jimi Hendrix

Born in 1970, Jimi Hendrix was an American rock guitarist, singer and songwriter. Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in history; The Rock and Roll Hall of Fam describes him as ''arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music''. After moving to England in late 1966 and being discovered by Linda Keith, within months Hendrix had earned three top ten hits with the Jimi Hendrix Experience: ''Hey Joe'', ''Purple Haze'' and ''The Wind Cries Mary''.
