The Montblanc Great Characters Jimi Hendrix Special Edition is dedicated to this music idol of an entire generation, with design details telling the story of an exceptional artist who left an indelible mark on the world of music.

Jimi Hendrix learned to play guitar as a teenager and grew up to become a rock legend who excited audiences in the 1960s with his innovative electric guitar playing. One of his most memorable performances was at Woodstock in 1969, where he performed "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Jimi Hendrix's cream-colored Fender Stratocaster guitar has inspired the shade of the resin on the cap of the Montblanc Great Characters Jimi Hendrix Special Edition. The geometric pattern recalls the pattern of Hendrix's embroidered guitar strap. The tremolo bar that was so important to his sound formed the shape of the clip, covered in cream-colored resin at the tip.

The artist's debut album title, Are You Experienced, decorates the clip top as a finishing touch. The date ‘18-06-1967’ on the barrel ring remembers Hendrix's spectacular performance at the Monterey Pop Festival during the "Summer of Love," while the ring's surface texture references the connecting end of a Fender guitar cable. Hendrix loved experimenting with sound effects using the wah-wah pedal – an electronic device used to manipulate the sound of an electric guitar. The surface of this pedal is reflected in the structure of the black resin barrel, and the cone is imprinted with the word 'WAH.' The red resin inlay at the end of the cone parallels in color the pilot light of a Marshall Super Lead amplifier. The cap top is crowned with the Montblanc emblem and embossing of the finger positions for the opening chords of 'Purple Haze,' a powerful interval nicknamed the devil's triton, as well as a violet ring.

The nuanced traces of Hendrix's guitar stylings found throughout the collection offer the ultimate tribute to one of the greatest musical contributors of our time in impeccable Montblanc fashion!
