Jimi Hendrix was the original guitar hero, he took electric guitar playing into a different stratosphere and remains to this day, one of the most important guitar players ever. It only seems fitting that the Fender Custom Shop would honour him with the Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child Strat Journeyman Relic.
A traditional select Alder body is finished in the super Olympic White Relic finish. The Journeyman is a very lightly aged nitro finish; this gives the look and feel of a vintage guitar that has been lovingly cared for over the years. This finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. It also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively compared with other more modern finishes.
The Maple neck features a 9.5" radius for a superb playing action without any choking. The '66 oval C shape and 21 medium jumbo frets offers a really comfortable playing experience, while the reverse Strat headstock, vintage style tuners and American Vintage tremolo give this guitar a real vintage Hendrix vibe.
With a trio of handwound Fender ’69 Left-Handed Strat pickups it delivers all the sweeping, versatile tones you would expect from a Strat. Rich and smooth, it's a premium Stratocaster tone.
Only the best will do in tribute to the greatest, Mr James Marshall Hendrix.
