that isnt a stratocaster?
I once hit a man in Dearborn. Michigan. A hit and run. I hit him and just kept on goin. I don't know if he's alive or dead. But I'm sorry. Not a day goes by i don't see his face.

Uh... Strat. You can play it on anything else, but if your point is to play Hendrix stuff, get a strat. You can really play any style on any guitar. Are you looking to get a Hendrix tone, and just don't like strats, or what?

Edit; ^Also, what he said.


That would be your inflatable guitar.

Seriously, I've tried, really the only guitar that can come close to Jimi without being a strat is a tele. Even then it doesn't sound much like him without hours of tweaking.

Hendrix is like half the stuff i play and im thinking of getting a new guitar soon. I know a strat works , but i wanted to see what other options there were. also i use the 22nd fret often when just freestyling and i dont have the money for an american strat. (not that i wouldnt take a MIM over most any other similarly priced guitar.)

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

hendrix also had a gibson double cutaway with p90's that he used if i'm not mistaken. keep in mind your amp plays a big role in your tone.

Yeah, I would still say get an MIM HSS strat, that'll give you tonal versatility. As for the 22nd fret, I guess, bend. Or you could get an Epi LP standard, a little more expensive, and a lot warmer sounding, but it has that 22nd fret, and they're good guitars. Personally, I prefer the strat, mostly for the maple fingerboard, and I like the sound of a strat more.

I've never played one of these, but I would check this strat out. I looks like it has what you're looking for without the american strat price.

Bends man, bends. Even before I switched fully to my strat I found myself bending on the 21st before using the 22nd.

Well, on earlier tracks and demos for Are You Experienced?, he borrowed a tele from Noel Redding.

He used a Gibson V, I think that's what you're thinking of. Here's a few Hendrix Strats.
