Whether you’re a vintage tone chaser or a huge fan of the legend himself, the Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child Strat will make a fantastic addition to your collection.
Become “Experienced” with Hendrix-Inspired Features
From the reverse headstock down to the left-handed pickups on a right-handed axe, the Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child Strat gives players the opportunity to experience the sonic and visual glory of one of the most innovative, groundbreaking guitarists of all time. The reverse headstock allows for easier bending on the high E due to the shortened string length while providing a tighter feel on the low E because of the longer string length.
Distinctive Hendrix-esque Tone
Not only does this Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child Strat ooze vintage tone thanks to a trio of Custom Shop Hand-Wound ’69 Single-Coil Strat pickups, but it delivers a sound that is uniquely Hendrix thanks to the pickups’ reverse pole piece placement and reverse-angled bridge pickup. The reverse pole pieces and reverse-angle bridge pickup offer the same orientation as a left-handed Strat strung upside-down, which allows this guitar to faithfully replicate that unmistakable Hendrix tone. What’s more? Vintage wiring is paired with modern 5-way switching, giving you the perfect mixture of classic tone with contemporary versatility.
Vintage Inspiration Through and Through
Everyone loves a solid vintage instrument, and the Fender Custom Shop gives you all those coveted vintage features with this Voodoo Child Strat. From the two-piece select alder body in a Journeyman Relic nitro lacquer finish and a tinted maple neck with a classic Oval C profile down to an American Vintage Synchronized trem, vintage-style tuners, a bone nut, and a wing string tree, this Jimi Hendrix Strat gives you all the old-school vibe you desire!
