The Monterey Pop Festival S Style. On Sunday, June 18, 1967— during the height of the Summer of Love — Jimi Hendrix literally burned down the house (and his S Style guitar) during his incendiary performance during the final night of the Monterey Pop Festival. With the Legendary Venues Monterey Pop Festival S Style, we recreate this guitar by bringing together our very best, 25-year cabinet-aged woods, an uber-flamed neck, standard one-piece body (traditional alder or ash — your choice), three custom hand-wound single-coil pickups specially matched to the individual guitar, and a profusion of parts — including bridge, saddles, strap buttons, pickguard, pickguard shield, trem plate, and more—all custom made. We exclusively use NOS paper-in-oil capacitors (hermetically sealed) with potentiometer matching. Built with no compromises for today’s player, the Legendary Venues Series Monterey Pop Festival S Style guitar will instantly take you back to a time when we all knew that rock’n’roll could — and would — change the world.
