It's a fuzzface clone with germanium transistors... hendrix is what its designed for. My only gripe with the new ESV stuff is that it uses carbon comp resistors, which are noisy and pointless for use in a 9v pedal. But, yes, it will be very good for hendrix.
If you're after a Hendrix style fuzz, look into Roger Mayer Classic or Axis Fuzz schematics. Roger Mayer was Hendrix's sound guy, and he did his pedals for him, so yeah. I think the ESV has a noise issue.
