Reverse look

Fender Jimi Hendrix Strat OWH electric guitar

Jimi Hendrix was a well-known Stratocaster player, so it's no wonder that this pioneer of Rock music has been awarded an artist signature model by Fender. But what makes this Stratocaster different from other Stratocasters? Hendrix was left-handed but, unable to get his hands on a left-handed guitar, simply turned a regular Stratocaster upside down and strung it the other way around. In homage to this legendary player, Fender has given his signature model a reversed headstock to more closely resemble Jimi's "upside down" Strat, and the pickups have also been flipped around by 180°.

Magnetic imbalance

Like most Stratocasters, the Fender Jimi Hendrix Strat features an alder body with a bolt-on maple neck and Fender's characteristic long scale length. The three American Vintage single coil pickups are governed by the standard combination of a five-way selector switch, a single volume control, and two tone controls. However, they have been flipped around in order to recreate the magnetic imbalance Hendrix made when he strung his guitar in reverse. The Jimi Hendrix Strat is made in Mexico to the same high standards of quality that everyone associates with Fender, and it features an Olympic White finish and aged plastic parts.

Typical Stratocaster with extras

The Fender Jimi Hendrix Strat is obviously the weapon of choice for devotees of the icon after whom it is named, but it also has some interesting features for Stratocaster fans in general. It goes without saying that the reverse look and the combination of an Olympic White finish and aged hardware make it a real eye-catcher, and the American Vintage pickups will meet even professional standards. What is more, this guitar can compete with Fender's US-made models in terms of its craftsmanship. So if you want a typical Stratocaster sound with a twist or simply want to pay tribute to your hero, this is the guitar for you.

About Fender

Fender is without doubt one of the most legendary guitar and amplifier manufacturers of all time. The company was founded in 1946 by its namesake Leo Fender († 1991), whose innovative ideas brought a breath of fresh air into the musical world. His Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass, and Jazz Bass are not only classics – they also continue to shape the styles of musicians in countless genres to this day. Timeless Fender amplifier models such as the Bassman, Twin, Deluxe, and Princeton also enjoy a stellar reputation. Besides maintaining its classic product portfolio, however, the company is also constantly developing new products that make Fender a driving force in today’s music industry.

A timeless signature guitar

With the Jimi Hendrix Strat, Fender has not only succeeded in creating a worthy memorial to the master of Rock music but has also developed a fully-fledged and exciting new Stratocaster that will not only find favour with Hendrix fans. This model gives players a professional-level instrument that is made for the big stage and comes at a reasonable price. The vintage look and the elegant Olympic White finish are the proverbial icing on the cake for this timeless signature guitar.

A class of its own!
Matthew B 22.04.2019
What can I say about the Jimi Hendrix Strat other than it beats the pants off of any Strat in any range below American Vintage!

I'll start with the best part of this guitar the sound, the American Vintage 65 pickup set is glorious and to me captures the Strat sound I hear in my head. They are not hot pickups and they will nail anything from Hendrix's, Mayer's or Stevie's catalogue especially Slow Dancing. The bridge pickup is very trebly but not enough that its unusable and the neck pickup is utterly divine.

The look is of course striking, with the reverse headstock, stunning white with the aged hardware, it certainly stands out from the pack. But the look does more than make you stand out it makes you play different as the reverse headstock makes the string tension feel very different from a normal Strat with slinky low strings and slightly tighter high strings it makes you work for those bends!

The neck is a thin C profile which is comfortable providing lots of access for either the shredder style hand position or the thumb over the top blues style...my only minor criticism is the fret ends which can remind you that this is still a Mexican made instrument but they are still perfectly serviceable but the only reason this guitar doesn't get all 5 stars.


60s tone at great price
Ashan 15.10.2017
using this guitar for home use/ light gigging, recording
A lovely guitar well built and packing some serious tone.
The 60s pickups sound great combined with the unique positioning (they are inverted) and the reverse headstock give this guitar a unique tone. the neck and bridge pick up give a classic bluesy strat tone. while the bridge gives a raw punch.
the guitar is well built and the trem system holds turning quite well.
ut also came with a nice gig bag

Only down sides to this is theres a slight overhang on the fret wire which is easily remedied and i would have liked a bone nut to make it truly 60s style

overall very happy with my purchase now if i could only play like jimi!


Authentic Vintage Rock n'Roll

This guitar is versatile for a number of styles and sounds not just exclusively Hendrix.

Beautiful Hendrix aesthetic but with it's features the right way around.

Classic bright Fender tones in the vintage pickups.

The inverted neck give it a beautiful unique tone.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced guitar and a Hendrix fan. This is the guitar for you.


Love it!!!

My favorite Strat ever, LOVE the tone, guitar came exceptionally well set up out of the box, the neck is straight, nut is properly cut, action is nice, intonation is spot on, neck is really comfortable, except pretty bad fret sprout, most probably due to difference in humidity - but it's easy to file fret ends and round everything. It weighs around 3.5 kg. Would definitely recommend this guitar
