Fender guitars is honouring legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix with two new signature stratocasters.

Hendrix is synonymous with the electric guitar and is probably the one name people associate with the instruments - such is his status.

Although Jimi's original guitar was left handed, the new Jimi Hendrix stratocasters, that comes in two different finishes; black and olympic white, are right-handed guitars strung upsidedown, mirroring his original guitar.

Fender has maintained key features like the reverse headstock, which has been signed on the back and a reverse-angled bridge pickup.

The Scottsdale, Arizona USA-based guitar manufacturer had initially teased the launch with the hashtag 'Alteryouraxis'. A lot of people on social networks had worked out the hint along with the picture of the iconic Fender logo upside down ahead of the announcement the following day.
