Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster
Alter Your Axis
Alter Your Axis: A Unique Point of View
Jimi Hendrix is universally accepted across generations as the epitome of the guitar god. His story and body of work has elevated him from mere rock star to an American folk hero.
The scarcity of left-handed Stratocaster guitars in the late 1960's required Jimi to flip over right-handed guitars and restring them to suit his southpaw faculties. The resulting 'reverse' headstock and reverseangled bridge pickup gave Jimi’s Stratocaster a unique tonal response and a distinctive look. These custom features have been incorporated into the new Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster for the right-handed masses.
Jimi is indelibly linked to the Fender Stratocaster guitar. Nearly every significant recording and performance in his career was played with a Strat. He abused them, broke them and burned them but never strayed from his devotion to the instrument. He is without question the most influential player to ever pick up the Stratocaster. As Janie Hendrix herself put it, “Jimi is Fender and Fender is Jimi.”

Reverse Mounted American Vintage Pickups
To get the pure electric tone that is an elemental part of Hendrix’ legacy, we’ve equipped the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster with three reverse-mounted American Vintage ‘65 single-coil Stratocaster pickups. This reverses the pole piece stagger, subtly changing the string-to-string volume balance for authentic Hendrix-style tone.
In an especially authentic touch, the single-coil bridge pickup on this signature model is mounted with a reverse slant, generating warm sound with enhanced upper harmonics and definition on the bass strings while adding girth to the treble strings.
Mirroring Jimi's flipped over right-handed guitars, the reverse ’70s-style headstock on this guitar alters the relative length of the strings, producing a longer string length and tighter playing feel on the bass strings and easier bending and vibrato on the treble strings.

Pickups are of vintage output and sound great!
There is some magic to the reverse headstock, hard to put my finger on it, better sustain on the low end perhaps.
Only gripe was the "all over the place" setup, or lack of any setup. Find it hard to believe Fender shipped this guitar.
Pickup height all over the place, saddle height no where near 9.5", neck had enough back bow that strings where laying on the fretboard. Basically it needed, a setup, which can be expected, but this one felt like it wasn't inspected at all after assembly.
A setup was easy enough, just a bit disappointing in Fender for this one. Others have come in nearly perfect, needing only minor tweaks to my taste.
As an observation: I think this is the way the Headstock should have always been, it just seems better.
