Fender 2018 Jimi HENDRIX Ultraviolet Stratocaster PURPLE Strat FREE Ship! 27672
This is a 2018 Fender Jimi Hendrix Ultraviolet Stratocaster in great condition. Features include:
— Reverse headstock and bridge pickup
— Alder body, maple neck
— C-shape, 9.5” radius neck with engraved neck plate
The effect of a flipped neck means different than normal string lengths, so easier bending on high strings. The ultraviolet finish looks really cool. The guitar still has the plastic on the pickguard. Cosmetically clean except for one mark and some scuffs on the bottom edge (see pics). Frets are clean with some mild flattening. Weight is 7 pounds, 9 ounces. Comes with tremolo bar but no case. Details on my setups and packing, as well as full specs, at bottom of listing. Thanks for looking!
-- Full setup and cleaning.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 15 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "Still Kickin - How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
A Strat to Sound Like Jimi!
Fender's Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster offers features of his flipped-over guitars in a great-playing instrument for today's Hendrix devotees. The reverse neck and headstock not only nail the look of Jimi's famed Strats but flips the string length of the lower strings for more power and easier bending of the higher strings. The reverse bridge pickup adds a unique vibe to your tones, with a tight, warm sound. And modern features such as a 9.5" fretboard radius and C-shape neck offer effortless playability.
Debuting in 2015, the Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster is part of the Fender Artist Series and offers custom modifications to capture the unique characteristics of Jimi's Olympic White Stratocaster that he played at Woodstock in 1969. Most notably featuring a reversed headstock and reverse-angle bridge pickup, the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster maintains a non-reversed pickguard and controls for ease of use. The Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster also features classic vintage touches, such as a C profile neck with a flat fingerboard for better note bending, Fender American Vintage '65 single-coil pickups for that classic tone, and either Olympic White or Black finishes with a neckplate featuring a silhouette of Jimi Hendrix himself. Jimi's idiosyncratic use of traditional music gear was a staple of his sound, and those tone-bending unusual features are available in this model.
Reverse headstock offers far more than looks!
Not many players have cut such an iconic stage presence as Jimi Hendrix and his flipped-over Stratocasters. But the look of that reversed headstock brought Jimi way more than an identifiable look. It increased string length to the low strings, which adds tension to the string, giving you a more pronounced tone and a tighter feel. And the shorter string length of the higher strings lightens the string tension for easier bending. That's why if you want to nail Jimi's vibe, you need a Strat like his.
Classic Hendrix Strat tones via a reversed bridge pickup-
The American Vintage '65 single-coil pickups on the Fender Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster get you closer to his sound. The vintage-style construction ensures you'll hear a clear output, with plenty of Strat chime. But it's the reverse bridge pickup design that sets this trio of pickups apart. By flipping his guitars over, Jimi tilted the pickup in the opposite way from most Strats. By offering you the same construction, you'll attain tight, warm sounds, with enhanced upper harmonics.
Modern neck dimensions for playing ease!
The maple neck on the Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster carries a modern fretboard radius of 9.5". This flatter design allows for much wider string bends than a vintage fretboard. It also works much better with the 6-saddle, vintage-style tremolo. And the neck's C-shape sits comfortably in your hand. It's thin enough for fast fretwork and Jimi-style thumb-over technique, but also substantial enough for comfortable chording. You'll get the best of Jimi's prized guitars with the features of today's great playing Fenders.
