Jimi Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix) is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music”.
In keeping with Jimi’s legacy, Fender are releasing their Custom Shop Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child™ Strat® – Journeyman Relic®. If you are an avid admirer of Jimi, then this Strat will be your chance to directly experience the tone and essential configuration of Jimi’s guitars, recreated for right-handed players by the artisans of the Fender Custom Shop.
The two new Stratocasters are both available in either available in Olympic White or Black, with both versions having a two-piece Custom Shop selected alder body and as mentioned above you can get them NOS or in Journeyman light relic, aged finishes.
Each guitar has an ’66 Oval C-profile maple neck, with a bone nut and that has a reverse headstock with Fender vintage-style tuning heads, they have 6105 fret wire (narrow and tall) and are a 9.5″ radius, so should they look the part with that flipped headstock.
They all have hand-wound ’69 Left-Handed Strat pickups to mimic the way Jimi’s pickups would have been upside down, as he strung a right-handed guitar upside down and also the bridge pickup’s slant is reversed compared to a regular Stratocaster. These are all wired to a 5-way switch and a single Volume and two Tone controls.
