Jimi's signature gauge comprises of a somewhat surprising and unusual light-low, heavy top gauge.  Roger Mayer, Jimi's pedal wizard explained in the guitar press the theory behind this unusual choice of string gauge;

"He tended to use a .015 because when you use a .017 for a G string it makes the guitar very "G-heavy".

A .017 sticks out, but when you change it to a .015 it makes a huge difference to the overall sound of the guitar - the whole sound of a chord."

He also added in some insight into Jimi's choice of low end gauge;

" Using a .038 on the lowest string makes it much more funky.  You still get a twang, but it means you can bend the low E string more easily, which Jimi tended to do a lot, of course.  The other god part about it is that the relationship between the E and the A is very sweet.  You can also hit the strings harder and get a nice attack.  You can't get the same attack on a 48."

Here's what Fender say;

"Jimi Hendrix set the music world on re with his rule-breaking playing style and one-of-a-kind tone. Make a fundamental piece of his full, warm tone yours by winding up a set of Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child™ Strings, with Jimi’s signature heavy-high, light-low gauge setup.

Easy to bend and full of the magic that was the source of his sound, these strings are a painstaking recreation of Jimi’s beloveds. Move over Rover—and let Jimi’s strings take over.

In the 1940’s in California, inventor Leo Fender discovered that he could dramatically improve on the quality of amplified hollow-body guitars with simple introduction of a solid-body electric guitar.  A few years later, in 1951 the first commercially mass-produced electric, solid-body guitar was introduced to the world market: the Telecaster!  Later that year, the first fretted ‘Precision’ Bass joined the Tele in becoming the foundation of popular music and modern rock.  The Stratocaster joined the ranks in 1954 with its pioneering tremolo system and went on to revolutionize popular music.

Fender opened its flagship factory in 1985 in Corona, California followed quickly by another development in Ensenada, Mexico in 1987 along with the introduction of the Fender Custom Shop in the Corona facility.  Fender has now become one of the biggest brands in manufacturing, distributing and marketing of musical instruments in the world and are the most famous electric guitar brand.

Strings Direct are an official dealer of Fender genuine strings, accessories and parts.
