Montblanc pays tribute to Jimi Hendrix, one of the most famous musicians of the 20th century and one of the most influential guitarists in the history of pop music. The eggshell white of the precious resin cap and the engraved pattern are inspired by one of the guitar straps worn by Jimi Hendrix. The black body, on the other hand, is adorned with an elegant pattern and is reminiscent of a wah-wah pedal. The platinum-plated clip is angled and shaped like the tremolo of an electric guitar. Another outstanding detail is the platinum-plated cap ring, inspired by a 1960s guitar cable and adorned with the engraved date of a famous Jimi Hendrix concert. The handmade nib in rhodium-plated 585 solid gold features a portrait of Jimi Hendrix.
To match the fountain pen, Montblanc offers a biro a la Jimi Hendrix. Here, too, you will find the beautiful details in the cap, including the engraved pattern in the style of his guitar straps, which Jimi Hendrix wore. The Montblanc emblem in the cap top is made of precious resin.
