Fender Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster Celebrates 50 Years
Whilst famously burned at the end of Hendrix's set, the guitar now makes its glorious return through a truly authentic recreation that delivers all of the same character and charm of the original. Aiming to deliver the same vintage tone and playability of the original model, the Fender Jim Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster features vintage-style single-coil strat pickups, a pau ferro fingerboard, synchronised tremolo and synthetic bone nut.
Accurately mirroring the detailed nuances of the first model, you too can now embrace the gravity defying playing style of Jimi and experience his iconic tone first hand. The Monterey Stratocaster guitar's classic alder body help to voice a well balanced and resonant tone, great for cutting through the mix and articulating your lead playing. The synthetic bone nut helps the guitar to increase its sustain and overall tonal body, lending to the muscular tone that perpetuated Hendrix's classic sound. Featuring the very same classic hand-painted design present on the guitar that Jimi Hendrix used, the guitar exudes rock-star credibility.
Regarded as one of the most influential musicians in living memory, Jimi Hendrix's impact on the world of modern music is nothing short of monumental. With a mainstream career only spanning a period of four years, Hendrix's revolutionary playing style and innovative songwriting saw him named as "Arguably one of the greatest instrumentalists in the history of rock music" by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
