Innovative, tasteful, tuneful and visionary... That's how we describe Jeff Beck, and his trusty Stratocaster is certainly part of his signature sound. This updated model reflects the significant changes Jeff made to his guitar to accommodate his constantly evolving style. You'll notice the new neck shape is a softer "C," not as large or deep as Jeff's previous choice. Also, the guitar features the new Fender special design dual-coil ceramic Noiseless pickups, a contoured heel for easier access to the higher registers, and straight-ahead Strat 5-way switching. Includes vintage tweed hardshell case, strap and cable.

        Comments about Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Vintage Tweed Case:

        This is a high quality instrument. I did not get it because is a JB signature but because of what it is. A top grade guitar. What made me fall in love with this guitar was the feel of the neck. Not as thin as an Am standard but not too thick, eather. Very soft and smooth. Your hand glides as if on butter. The pups are very vesatile. They can take you from sweet blues sounds all the way to hard rock. I originally purchased a custom shop deluxe strat that I was excited about. Took it home and started playing it. Great sound and a good chunky neck but the neck was very slow. Your hand does not slide smoothly. Almost felt as if I had sticky hands, which I know I didn't. I went back to Sam Ash to return it and came back with this beauty. Not for everybody but it sure is worth the money. Give it a test drive. You won't be desappointed

          Comments about Fender Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar with Vintage Tweed Case:

          I bought one of the very first Jeff Beck models to hit the stores in 1991. Only death will part me from it. I've been through over 100 guitars since the early sixties and this one was the first to do all of the things I needed a guitar to do. I figured if it could handle what Jeff dishes out, it might work for me too.

          I needed a guitar that would be able to take fairly constant tremelo bar use and stay in tune, and this one does it flawlessly. I can drop double stop chords a whole step and hold them there in tune and bring them right back up to pitch. I can't say enough about the Schaller locking tuners, everyone is using them now. I can't tolerate locking systems on guitars and they don't sound the same anyway. With these tuners, you avoid all of that rubbish.

          I also needed a wide variety of tones, as well as a choice between single and double coil pick ups, and my original Beck model has that option. I think they've cut that option out of the newer ones. They've also stopped using the original neck design, which for me is essential. This guitar is as solid as a rock, making for incredible response and tremendous sustain capabilities.

          They've also stopped using the Fender Lace Sensor pick ups, which is funny. I've read so many reviews where young guitar players say they hate the sound of them, but I get loads of young guitar slingers that come to see me play and they flip over the sound of my guitar! I wouldn't change anything about my Jeff Beck artist model. Everything on it is completely stock. It's the perfect Stratocaster. It's not that nothing else will come close, it's that nothing else will work period.

          This guitar will take a real pounding. I've had mine for 15 years and guys come up to me all the time asking if it's a new guitar. I rarely ever break a string with mine, just changing them when they lose their sound, or are played out from tremelo bar use.

          I would go to any length to catch someone if they stole it from me. If anything ever did happen to it, I would search out another '91 model. Jeff seems to get along fine with his newer models, so they must be great or he'd be playing something else. I favor the original design. It's simply the ultimate Stratocaster for me.
