Gibson Creates Hendrix Guitars

The Hendrix legacy has a much greater association with the Stratocaster so it is a bit surprising that signature axes bearing his name are coming from Gibson instead of Fender.  Jimi did play a Flying V at the Isle Of Wight Festival, but the vast majority of his time on stage and in the studio was spent playng his famously inverted Strats - right handed guitars he flipped upside down and restrung.  The Gibson models will mimic some of the effect of that by rearranging the pick-ups to reflect the array Jimi had. Three models are being produced, and will be packaged with amps, fuzz pedals and other items.
