Click To Enlarge

 Here is one of the coolest Fender guitars to ever be produced! A personal favorite of the guitar Dude and a truly collectible must have for any Hendrix or Fender fanatic. The 1997 Fender Jimi Hendrix tribute Stratocasters predates the Voodoo Stratocaster and has many different specs. I is far closer to what Hendrix actually played in every single way. It's pretty much an Exact Reissue of the one he played at Woodtock! It is in absolutely perfect mint collector condition. It is 100% factory original and it is just a gem of collector piece. It is one of the rarest and most desired Fenders out there from the modern era. All of the case candy is there and still unopened. It was hand-made by the finest luthiers at Fender at the Corona, California factory. It has never been played or modified and still even has the plastic cover and ever so rare purple Jimi Hendrix sticker on the pickguard. It has the original hang tags as well. The Hippie Ace strap is perfect and never used as well as the white curly cord. While the guitar and case candy are absolutely perfect and in mint condition, the case is not. It is the sixth of these guitars that the Dude has owned and sold, and this one is the cream of the crop! It has a great neck and a spot on Hendrix tone. Add this to your stash of guitars for instant coolness.

Jimi Hendrix Tribute Stratocaster, made in the USA between 1997-2000

In the late 1960s, Jimi Hendrix demonstrated an amazing technique and stretched the sonic possibilities of the solid body guitar and, in the process, changed rock music–forever.

In honor of this amazing talent Fender Musical Instruments and Experience Hendrix, LLC (the family of Jimi Hendrix) authorized & released released the Jimi Hendrix Tribute Stratocaster. “Modeled after the same Strat that Jimi played at his historic performance at the Woodstock Music Festival of August 1969, the instrument was bound to delight generations of guitar players and music history enthusiasts for years and years,” noted Jack Shelton, senior vice president of sales at Fender.

Interestingly, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster, which was built in Fender’s factory in Corona, California, is a left-handed model strung right-handed and reversed, with the strap button on the lower horn, so that right-handed players would appear as Jimi did when looking at themselves in the mirror. The guitar, which is available in Olympic White, also boasts a maple neck with a large late-60s-style headstock, classic Schaller “F” tuners and woven strap. The pickup configuration is unique–three reverse staggered vintage Stratocaster pickups that are positioned perfectly for emulating Jimi Hendrix classics such as “Wild Thing,” “Purple Haze” or even “The Star Spangled Banner.”
