MGR/Anonymous's review"Fender Voodoo Stratocaster"

Fender Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Stratocaster
I bought it new 6 months ago after reading great things about it. I have always been a Tele player and this is my first Strat. I paid about $925 with case. It's black with a maple neck, alder body, vintage trem/tuners, 5 way switching

The reverse neck shape and bridge pickup give it a more mellow mid-rangey sound and the string tension is different because the reverse neck headstock is 180 degrees out from the standard config. It has a real twangy feel

It came strung with extra slinky 9's (who plays with spider webs?)I put 10's on it and it had a nasty fet buzz so I took it to an authorized Fender dealer with an official Fender-certified repairman who told me it needed a fret mill to get rid of the buzz, $30. I had it done it was somewhat better but not buzz-free 100%. I submitted all receipts and records to Fender for warranty reimbursement and they refused to pay! I had no idea they valued their customers so poorly. I was on the phone with the Fender warranty guy, wearing my Fender T-shirt and looking at $5K worth of Fender gear in my living room and the guy wouldn't kick down $30! I am shocked, frankly.

Piss poor fret finishing, other than that it seems pretty together. There is a cool laser etched pic of Jimi on the heel plate. This model has been discontinued due to pressure from the Hendrix estate ( what ,Fender ripped them off, too?)and is now called a '68 reverse Strat

I will definitely think twice before I EVER purchase another new piece of gear from these greedheads at Fender

Hatsubai's review"One of the few reverse headstock models"

Fender Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Stratocaster
Jimi Hendrix is easily the number one, most iconic guitarist to ever play a strat. He single handedly started the double cut movement from the 60s and onwards. What he did for Fender is something that could almost never be replicated in today's world. It's a bit odd that they only had this model for a few years, and it's a shame that so few tributes have been given to Hendrix. The guitar features an alder body, a maple neck, 21 frets, dot inlays, a vintage style tremolo, three single coil pickups, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The guitar was pretty good in quality. The fretwork was quite nice, but I have a feeling it was fret leveled by somebody as the frets seemed to be slightly smaller than what I normally see on Fenders. The nut was also perfect in terms of tuning stability. The bridge stayed in tune on this like a champ. One thing worth noting is that the neck joint on this had a pretty decent gap going on. This can cause issues if you happen to hit the guitar against something real hard. The neck might shift, and your high e might start slipping off the neck. If this happens, you'll want to force the neck back into position while tightening the screws down.

SOUNDS

The pickups in this were decent, but they were nothing real mind blowing. The bridge was bright, and it had a medium output going on. It worked decent for mid gain, but it was too bright for cleans, and it lacked the power for high gain. Position 2 was good for cleans/funky tones. You had that standard stratty sound. Position 3 was useless to me. Position 4 was good for that typical Hendrix tone that everyone seems to know and love. The neck was decent for cleans and leads, but I was struggling quite a bit. Then again, I'm used to higher output pickups, so keep that in mind.

OVERALL OPINION

The guitar is decent, but it's nothing too exciting. That's one of the things that really irks me about Fender. They could have done a real amazing tribute to Hendrix that everyone would want to buy, but I felt they kinda dropped the ball with this guitar. It's a good guitar, but there are better ones out there.

Fender Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Stratocaster
Origin: Mexico (2500 francs prices 5 years ago)
as in the photo but the handle is functional and the head is thinner.
I do not use vibrato because of untimely dsaccordage so I blocked the bridge.
I replaced the white pickgard pickgard a brown quail (==> look awesome).

UTILIZATION

It is a stratovolcano so enjoyable in every way
trs good round.
Access in acute is correct and nothing more.

SOUNDS

I changed the original pickups for vintage Van Zandt pickups.
my little Mexican has been transformed into real strato amricaine for 1500 francs.
sounds without too much pot funk I'm not a fan. prfre my position is mid-bridge.
for the blues, but not quite sustain the esprer like a gibson.
it is a guitar master key.

OVERALL OPINION

I have 2 other guitars: a Fender Highway and a gibson les paul standard.
the highway was too sound and clean pot: you have to change the pickups.
the gibson is sublime. which sustain (the top but expensive, heavy and not as mat That a fender).

My Fender Mexican (with a change of pickups and skid plate, total cost = 4200 francs) has a great sound that rivals fender without problem with a luxurious amricaine (t made the comparison).
the board to change pickups I t given by mauro emissions that has played including Eddy Mitchell.
hello all.
