The Fender Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Stratocaster was made in the USA between 1998 and 1999. It was around the fifth in the series of Hendrix signature stratocaster released by Fender. The design of the Fender Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Stratocaster went a little way toward's recreating Hendrix's sound. It had a right-handed alder body, a one-piece maple neck with reverse headstock, 21 medium jumbo frets, vintage pickups with reversed staggered pole pieces and reverse angle bridge pickup, a right-handed vintage bridge, maple fretboard, and vintage “F” tuners. The reverse bridge pickup angled down towards the bass string produces a sound that differs from a standard Stratocaster bridge pickup. Fender claimed the low strings were brighter and more articulate and the high strings are warmer and fuller when this right-handed guitar is strung lefthanded, the change in string tension and the reverse staggered pole pieces on the pickups having a direct effect on the tone. Since it’s a challenge to play a guitar body that’s upside down with all the knobs and the tremolo in the way, Fender made it easy for the right-handed player to comfortably obtain the Hendrix sound. Everything on the Voodoo Strat was designed to give all the tonal benefits of playing an upside-down Strat like the Hendix original, only on a right-handed body.
