Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix "Woodstock" Stratocaster - Izabella - Artist Series Tribute - Olympic White - 1508692805
Fender Custom Shop Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster “Izabella”
Limited Edition “Woodstock” Strat Replica
Custom Artist Series Model with Accessory Package
Jimi Hendrix was an avowed Stratocaster fanatic, and had many examples pass through his hands. But one particular Strat stood out and was graced with the nick name Izabella—inspiring the song of the same title. This guitar is more popularly known as the “Woodstock Strat” and was most famously featured during his incendiary rendition of ‘Star Spangled Banner’ from that iconic 1969 performance. The artisans at the Fender Custom Shop have recreated this iconic instrument in painstaking detail—even down to the scratches and dings—leaving no (third) stone unturned in their quest for accuracy. This is the result in all its glory: the Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix Stratocaster, a representation of the way the Olympic White Stratocaster looked when he strapped it on that Monday morning at Yasgur’s farm and serenaded the rising sun, backed by Gypsy Sun and The Rainbows, bringing his brand of “electric church music” to the masses.
Purchased at Manny’s Music in NYC in ’68, this guitar (original serial number 240981) was slightly modified to reflect Hendrix’ needs as a left-handed player, including being drilled for a strap button on the lower horn—a modification we reproduced here. This model is period-correct, from the ‘60s “Oval C”-shaped neck profile with desirable “maple cap” fingerboard, vintage correct 7.25” radius and 21 vintage-style frets. The period-accurate 3-ply Parchment pickguard is loaded with a trio of hand-wound ’69 Strat pickups tied together with vintage-style wiring and a 3-way pickup switch. Other features include vintage-style “F” tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree.
Additional items included in this limited edition package: Deluxe Hardshell Case, Authentic Custom Strap Replica, Custom Headband (sorry – not soaked in LSD), Coiled Cable, Commemorative Booklet and Certificate of Authenticity.
