My friend told me his dad had a jimi hendrix signature guitar about a week ago.

He doesn't have one due to the licencing problems that surround Hendrix branded stuff. If you want a Hendrix signiture guitar, just get a strat.

There have been some hendrix tribute strats but not anymore, the closest is the reverse headstock strat.

He has a Flying V sig from gibson.



I don't know if that counts, I guess it's more of a commemorative one rather than a signature.


YES!!!!!, that's it.

Let me tell you. Gibson recreated this Flying V from the original Jimi's one, which he customized painting almost all the things you can see and that guitar body.

It was just a stock Strat with a couple of fuzz pedals and a wah, so you wouldn't need one really.

The real question is, would anybody be able to actually afford it?

a strat strung a different way?

It couldn't be much more than a standard strat or people would just make their own.

Yes but because it's a Hendrix signature you know they're gonna rape the price. Even though anybody could just take a left handed strat and flip the strings. And vice versa for left-handed players.

Not only that, there's little practical reason to have one anyway - they'd be of extrememely limited appeal from a playing point of view.

Fender had about twi signatures from him. They made a voodoo strat that had the specs from his guitars and they made a white one like the one from woodstock i think. Then there was a monterey copy from custom shop.

^ I'm sure there is nothing to it... All they would really need to do is remake a late sixties, early 70s left hand strat strung the other way or a right handed guitar with a left hand neck and left handed trem. Then you'll be rockin'

What do you mean hasn't had a signature guitar? He's had eight of them. Four are directly acknowledged as Hendrix signatures.

That's the seven Hendrix Starts and then we have the Flying V too.

I'm pretty sure the TS meant a permanent signature strat. We all know that there were limited runs of signature strats

PS: Oh, and thanx for posting that lol. Quite an interesting story with SRV and the 1980 prototype

A friend of mine has a custom Strat, which is a left hand American Strat reversed and hand painted to match the one he burned during Wild Thing at Monterey. Even has the hand written poetry on the back [It's Hendrix lyrics since we don't really know what was on the back of Jimi's]

John Mayer also has one of these that is pretty much identical to the one I described above.

It's about as close to signature' as you can get.

Yeah, he's got the Psychedelic V.


I'm guessing he'd also have an Olympic White '57 Strat with his name on it, or something like that, as well.

I don't know if that counts, I guess it's more of a commemorative one rather than a signature.



it was based on his flying v that he piainted himself and customised a little bit
and the men of men at gibson have slaved away for hours on end researching that guitar to make this gibson "tribute" guitar as similar as possible to his,
so it is effectively a signature guitar.

and if im right in thinking in this, but i believe epiphone didn't make a left handed version of the iommi g400 either until there was a general outcry from iommi and fans

Or you can just flip a right handed strat upside down, and restring it.

Or do the same with a leftie, y'know ...

Jimi Hendrix is famous for his STRATOCASTER, so why the f*ck did Gibson take his paint job style. It should have been Fender, right?!

because he painted his flying V like that.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

I dont know why,but i searched google and yahoo and nothing came up on anything.Wow i didnt know they made one at all.

He also played a Flying V with that paint job on occasion.

As for the OP there have been Hendrix sig guitars released (albeit in limited editions) by two of the biggest names in electric guitars, what more could you want?

On occasion? I read an interview with him, where he said that his V was his favorite guitar, and he never used it on stage after he got famous because he liked to smash guitars, and strats were easy to put back together and were cheaper. Before he became famous he used the V almost exclusively, and used his SG somewhat.

The rest of your post I completely agree with.
