Summary: Jimi Hendrix took the world by storm with his incredible Monterey Pop Festival performance, which he concluded with the sacrificial burning of his now-iconic hand-painted Stratocaster. Destroyed during the fiery culmination of his set, this one-of-a-kind guitar survived only in photos and film. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this milestone in music history, Fender created the limited-edition Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster. Summoning the same fiery magic Jimi evoked at the Monterey Pop Festival, the Fender Limited Edition Jimi Hendrix Monterey Stratocaster is a faithful recreation of the guitar that set the world on fire and altered the course of rock n' roll.
