Yes, Now You Can Own and Play Jeff Beck's Guitar

There are few bigger names in the entire guitar world than Jeff Beck! His career spans over 40 years and includes many hits, including a number of influential singles with The Yardbirds! As you can imagine, this is a musician that can play any instrument he chooses - and he chooses the Fender Jeff Beck Artist Series Strat. That's right, the same guitar you can own and play.

You'll notice the neck shape is a softer "C" shape and not as large or deep as Jeff's previous choice. The guitar features the Fender Special Design dual-coil ceramic Noiselessinf. pickups, a contoured heel for easier access to the higher registers, and straight-ahead Strat guitar five-way switching.

Fender Jeff Beck Artist Series Stratocaster at a Glance:
  • Solid alder body with Olympic White polyurethane finish and three-ply white pickguard.
  • Three dual-coil ceramic Noiseless Strat pickups.
  • One-piece maple neck and rosewood fingerboard with special "C" shape.
Just like Jeff's Own Guitar

You might think that a famous guitarist like Jeff Beck would pick some amazingly figured maple and ash, but in truth, Jeff prefers to stay with a fairly basic Strat design. Once you play it, you'll see why he never really asked for anything more (though Fender did build him a custom "one-off" with a special paint job that honors Jeff's love of hot rods). You start with a lightweight alder body with a Olympic White polyurethane finish and three-ply white pickguard and three hot, dual-coil ceramic Noiseless pickups. If you've heard Jeff play, you know he really works the tremolo unit hard, so this Artist Series instrument comes with a modern American two-point synchronized tremolo for outstanding tuning stability. Bend notes or entire chords up or down and the guitar stays in tune!

Screaming Hot Strat Sound

The original Strat had three single coil pickups, so it was able to produce sounds that no other guitar could deliver, particularly once players discovered they could lodge the three-position blade switch in those "in-between" positions to access neck / middle and bridge / middle pickup combinations. These were often erroneously referred to as the "out-of-phase" settings. The Jeff Beck Strat comes standard with a modern five-way blade switch, making it easy to access all the pickup combinations. Three dual-coil ceramic Noiseless pickups deliver a searing Strat sound, but otherwise there are no special tone circuits since Jeff's fingers produce the outrageously diverse range of timbres, from crystal clear to smoking hot. And remember, Jeff believes that "guitar picks are for sissies." It's certainly hard to argue when you hear him play.

Fast Playing Maple Neck with Special "C" Shape

Leo Fender wasn't afraid to "think outside the box" when it came to guitar designs - after all, he was an engineer, not a guitar player. In the 1950s and well into the 1970s, the blond natural maple neck became almost synonymous with Fender guitars. The Jeff Beck Stratocaster comes with a one-piece maple neck and a slightly warmer-sounding rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and Jeff's personal favorite "C" shape, allowing you to really dig into the strings. In keeping with contemporary player preferences, the fast playing neck is finished in a smooth satin polyurethane.

Fender Guitars

You could easily make the case that Fender electric guitars were responsible - at least in great part - for the birth of modern rock 'n' roll. Originally designed to be easier to build, and thus more affordable, Leo Fender's masterpieces, which include classics like the Stratocaster (is there a more distinctive guitar shape in the world?), the Telecaster and the original Precision Bass, were at the core of a musical revolution that spawned everything from surf to country to punk!

In the 1960s, when Fender guitars first hit bandstands and stages all around the country, it was astonishing to see that trademark Fender maple neck and fingerboard. Though the company eventually offered rosewood fingerboards as standard or optional on its entire line of instruments, those first"blond" necks really shook things up. Others have picked up on the maple neck theme, but it's clearly yet another of Leo Fender's "firsts."

Today, no other manufacturer can match Fender for the sheer number of options available throughout its entire line. While vintage Fenders can command astronomic prices, the company now has the widest range of quality instruments in the world, along with the highest profile players like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, all of whom are legendary.

Awesome Modern Guitar

ABSOLUTELY a great guitar start to finish right out of the box. Versatility is great, from traditional Strat tones ( I also have a '72 Strat) to Texas hot to soaring Beck-ola leads. Stays in tune with EXTREME whammy abuse test. Case is nice, it comes with a strap, cord and whammy bar. Spencer made sure the test was done and had the guitar in one day!! This is the only way to go.

Best Strat I've Ever Played !

I received the instrument within 5 days from Sweetwater in perfect condition. Set up was good, but I'm very particular and peculiar about the action on my guitars. I adjusted the action to my liking and played it without plugging the guitar into an amp. This guitar sounded great acoustically. Great tone, great sustain, and passed the Albert King bend test! Then I brought it to rehearsal and played it through my Vibroverb 1x15 amp. The tone knocked me out. Big Thick Strat sounds. Then I kicked in the Fulltone '69 Fuzz, and Fat boost pedals. Superb! I love this guitar. The whole band was impressed, and these guys can play. I really like being able to adjust the truss rod and neck angle without removing the neck. High note playing a breeze with the beveled body. I have been playing longer than most of the people who read this have been alive and I recommend this instrument. Alan at Sweetwater made my purchase so easy.

Dude just buy it!

Got this beast just before Christmas and have been having a great time with it ever since. It was set up right out-of-the-box just like the folks at Sweetwater said it would be. Great tone, feel and that awesome surf green. I have a 1974 Les Paul Custom and a Fender Telecaster B-Bender. Both are great guitars, but the Jeff Beck is my favorite.
