This Fender Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster for sale is an killer instrument inspired by the guitar Jimi Hendrix played and burned at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival. 

 

We recently saw a documentary celebrating the 40th anniversary of the event, and the Hendrix segment really blew us all away.  It was his American debut as part of the "Jimi Hendrix Experience", and it was truly a watershed event for culture and guitar!

 

Please note that this price in our website is our bottom line for the decal graphics, and the 100% hand painting version would be a little higher than that. 

 

About Fender Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster

Fender Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster was one of the most iconic moments in rock history: Jimi Hendrix knelt down, sprayed his guitar with lighter fluid and then set fire to it before smashing it to pieces. Jimi Hendrix was 24 at the time. I can understand the basis as the Fender Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster was really a clever and unique design before Jimi burned it at the Monterey International Pop Festival on June 18th 1967. Jimi played on the third and final day of that historic festival. He hit the stage prior to the WHO who were scheduled to play after Jimi that day. Peter Townsend was known to have said, "We came on after him, and all I could do was just stand there and strum."

 

The actual guitar that he painted and subsequently burned that evening was a 65 Strat in Fiesta Red. Prior to the concert Jimi hand painted the body with white spray paint and fingernail polish. The actual guitar paint work was actually very crudely done with overspray from the white paint on the hardware and no finish work after he hand painted the intricate, and now famous design. No color photographs of the complete guitar were ever taken. The only recorded history of the guitar is from the video footage of Jimi playing the guitar and subsequently burning the guitar in sacrifice with lighter fluid and matches. 

 

 

 

 

 

Fender released a tribute version of the Fender Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster which was painted by artist Pamelina H. Her design differs slightly from the original Hendrix artwork and Fender added the backstage pass sticker to the body which was not found on the original. The pass features a photo of Hendrix burning the guitar by Ed Caraeff. Fender announced the guitar in July of 1996 but was finally made available in 1997. It originally had a MSRP of $6999.00. An original Fender Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster recently sold on eBay for the bargain price of $15,000.00 within the past 90 days.

 

Interestingly this guitar has become synonymous with Grammy award winner John Mayer. A great guitar player in his own right it’s interesting that he now gets billed with Hendrix on this very unique and very Hendrix guitar. John Mayer has an extensive guitar collection, it’s true, but his main guitar for years has been the Fender Stratocaster, in one variety or another. But so goes the world of Pop today. Actually I have seen Kenny Wayne Shepard play one of these and he just smokes with this thing. If you like Hendrix, SRV, then as much as John Mayer can wrangle some mojo from a Strat, KWS will make the hair on your neck stand up and bring tears to your eyes. So enough of the history.

 

 

 

This is what the original, mega-buck 1997 Fender Custom Shop Strat Hendrix Tribute Strat looks like. Note that it is based a early 60's Fiesta Red Strat with some custom graphics. The graphics, originally painted by Mr. Hendrix and reproduced by an artist for the Custom Shop, are in black, turquoise, and dark red. Please note that the Fender Custom Shop version flower design is slightly different with the original. Note: We absolutely hate the sticker Fender placed on the guitar. You can see it -- it looks like a backstage pass with a photo of Mr. Hendrix burning the guitar. Very odd for a megabuck guitar. But if you like, we can provide it too.


We have professional 100% hand painted work with more authentic perspective. Note that Jimi Hendrix’s original guitar paint job has some slightly different with Fender's Pamelina replica. First, she painted a red rose on the upper horn; this guitar has the correct pink and yellow daisy. The original has the red and green swirls on the pickguard, and not just green swirls. This is the real deal for any Hendrix fan or someone looking for a historic or interesting guitar. Please note that both versions can be custom made. And John Mayer other guitars we have also dedicated lots of time to. So if you're interested in his other guitars, please email us.



Warning: We don't recommend buying other cheap copies because some very obvious mistakes occurred, although the price is very attractive. See the comparison below:


After comparing, you will find that the second one is nothing. The paint work is so poor, merely decal making graphics. The bright white controls plus light yellow pickguard, that would be a heavy hit for anyone who receive it. And note the sticker, just a mistake. Many other mistakes you could find out very easily. We don't know how to make a cheap guitar that's not a piece of junk like the right one. If you wind up buying one replica of John Mayer Monterey Pop Strat, make sure the paperwork is airtight.


The Pamelina design is not historically accurate nor was it meant to be. You can own yourself Fender Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster. We used stills from the video to come up with as close a design as we could. Our Fender Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster would be historically correct as much as possible within the confines of reasonable price and playability. Please note that the price in our website is our bottom line for the decal graphics, and the 100% hand painting version would be a little higher than that.  Email us now and get your own Fender Monterey Pop Festival Stratocaster
