Alter Your Axis
Experience the Jimi Hendrix™ Stratocaster®
Imagination Is Key
Jimi Hendrix’s music offers something for everyone; sublime melodies, fiery lead playing, masterful rhythm work and sonic textures the likes of which had never been heard before. The foundation of his pioneering guitar style was his “flipped over” Stratocaster, and now the guitar god’s tool of choice is available to the common man—the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster.
Follow in the footsteps of a musical giant with this irresistible guitar offering unique looks, handmade craftsmanship, vintage-inspired components and a playing feel that’s all its own. Like Hendrix himself, this instrument is a true original.
“’Cause I got my own world to live through”

Now it's your turn to change the world of music
All three American Vintage ’65 “gray-bobbin” pickups with staggered-height pole pieces are flipped, uniquely altering their harmonic structure.
The reverse headstock changes the length of the bass strings and creates a tighter playing feel; shorter treble strings make for easier bending and vibrato.
The reverse-angled bridge pickup produces inspiring tight, warm tone with enhanced upper harmonics and definition.
