"Beck's Bolero "

Fender Jeff Beck StratocasterPublié le 08/12/11 à 08:17
The Fender Jeff Beck signature Strat was introduced way back when as sort of a hot rodded take on the classic '60s Strats that Jeff so loves. It has come in a variety of cool colours and had various different features over the years. The standard USA Artist model has settled on having an alder body, a very chunky maple neck with rosewood fretboard and 22 frets, locking tuners, 2 point Fender bridge and some Fender Noiseless pickups to round out the package. Here's the full list of specs:

Body Alder
Neck Maple, C Shape,
(Satin Urethane Finish)
Fingerboard Rosewood, 9.5 Radius (241 mm)
No. of Frets 22 Medium Jumbo Frets
Pickups 3 Dual-Coil Ceramic Noiseless Pickups
Controls Master Volume,

UTILIZATION

The feel of this guitar is closer to an American Deluxe Strat than the American Standard model. It feels more refined and generally has a higher end feel than the typical USA Strat. The weight is usually on the slightly heavier side from my experience, and it does have a beefy neck profile. However it does feature ample contouring that tends to streamline out the whole package quite well. Upper fret access is great considering that the neck heel is contoured as well a-la the American Deluxes.

Getting a good tone out of this guitar is fairly easy overall and I'm generally quite impressed by it's thick and Stratty quality all round. Jeff is known for a very distinct and individual tone that comes across very well in this guitar. Harmonics are just waiting to leap out from hidden places, and once you apply some gain, a dash of reverb and grab the ol' trem bar... look out!

SOUNDS

I've tried this guitar through various Fender and Mesa Boogie amplifiers. Something I find about a lot of signature models is that they do a core tone very well, but usually aren't the most versatile. However the JB Strat bucks this tradition, providing a sound that's a killer facsimile of an early '60s Strat but with modern appointments that contribute to a thicker and overall raunchier tone.

The cleans are pretty typical Strat.. if you're picturing a killer overwound delight. Not your grandfather's guitar... this thing has TONE in spades. The pickups are hotter than most Strat pickups, and as a result, you lose a bit of the shimmery top end of old and in its place gain a really nice and pure sounding breakup when the pickups are hit hard. This approach and tone works really well for some pseudo-blues and some cool garage rock textures, because a CLEAN clean tone is going to be a bit harder to attain.

The overdrive tones are a delight to behold. I absolutely love how the JB Strat responds to gain! The pickups take on a whole other character that is part Gibson, part Strat. Chords gain some SERIOUS hair and the lead lines are just... perfection. It goes from classic blues to the most modern of shred with ease as far as the tones, and you can count on the guitar to deliver a great response all the way through.

OVERALL OPINION

The Fender Jeff Beck Strat is a great buy for someone looking for a killer hot rodded type Strat that really takes well to gain and other such devilish fun. It's got a high output core, but the sound is real and decidedly Strat all the same. For $1,600 new these guitars are a great bargain. The neck may be too thick for some players, but it's something that you'd have to play and see if it works for your hand.

"Latest version of this guitar"

Fender Jeff Beck StratocasterPublié le 06/30/11 à 12:44
Jeff Beck has been a long time user of the Fender Stratocaster, so it was only natural that he would get his own guitar. There have been a lot of different versions of these, but this one has an alder body with a maple neck, a rosewood fretboard with 22 frets, dot inlays, two point tremolo system, SSS configuration, carved away neck joint with a micro-tilt adjustment, one volume, two tones and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

Jeff Beck usually designs a pretty nice guitar, and this is no exception. The guitar's neck felt very comfortable to me. It wasn't too extreme in any direction. The frets should probably have been crowned a bit better, but there were no edges sticking out, so no......

UTILIZATION

Jeff Beck usually designs a pretty nice guitar, and this is no exception. The guitar's neck felt very comfortable to me. It wasn't too extreme in any direction. The frets should probably have been crowned a bit better, but there were no edges sticking out, so no issues there. The neck joint was perfectly fine, and the gap wasn't big enough to really cause any major concern. Jeff loves his roller nuts, but I can't say I'm a huge fan. They make the guitar sound a bit "pingy" at times, and I find that a properly cut bone nut can function just as well, if not better.

SOUNDS

The pickups in this were the Fender Noiseless pickups, and they really are pretty quiet. The bridge can get a nice overdrive sound going on, and it can work for most genres from blues to fusion to even metal with the right setup. However, I would advise against the metal setup unless you like bright tones. The neck sounded great for those lead tones, but it was even better when it came to clean tones. I never use the middle pickups, but it worked great for those funky kind of sounds with the in-between positions when it was combined with either the neck or the bridge.

OVERALL OPINION

Jeff Beck's guitars have gone through all kinds of different changes, and this is the latest version. Any of them are good, really. It all depends on what you're looking for out of a guitar. I really wish he would change to a real nut, though. Aside from that, they're great.

SONORITS

I rather play jazz, and my respect for a jazz-rock repertoire it is ideal because it allows the particular nuances with saturs.Essaye sounds on a Vox 30 watts, c ' magnifique.En is its clear, on a JC120 is very good too.

NOTICE GLOBAL

All strats should sound like celle-ci.La finish is exemplary with russia color choice. What I like least: this is the price that makes it a very expensive instrument .But if we are adict brand why not ...
In any case it is a good guitar.

I love the vibrato even if takes a little adaptation, it is better for the action of the latter is fully determined to be mastered because it reacts when you touch. Interestingly, it is optimized to run in both directions. Summarized by Fender "vibrato effects fierce" is right!

The general happiness, therefore, to try to hit Jeff. I had an "american standard" before so I know the vibrato "standard" type, but there nothing to do, it really gives the sound the artist typed, I have to work hard to inspire me with his talent! -) ...

SOUNDS

So I took the initiative to reduce slightly the height of the strings to get my personal setting. The handle, a perfect righteousness, do not absolutely frieze despite this small change. This violates a bit small appropriation for which it was designed this guitar but I assume: I prefer well ..

The sounds are what I was looking for a long time: no noise interference thanks to "Noiseless" and very good dynamics, excellent expressivity is still in its "Fender" feature and we want to play as soon as a few notes or agreements gush instrument! ... The beauty of the neck pickup is remarkable alone he convinced me to buy the instrument even if the color of the other is also very good! ...

I play on a Fender amp and the combination is remarkable, excellent sound clear and crunches. On a Peavey DeltaBlues, we obtain good clear sound, excellent sound and saturated crunch.

OVERALL OPINION

I have this instrument since the beginning of 2013, I play regularly with a lot of happiness because it is an instrument of excellent quality.

Having had a strat with USA standard and also a G & L Legacy of the good old Leo, it seems to have some interesting benchmarks in comparison.

I love the personality of this guitar, the precision of his vibrato and beauty of sound. It is both "standard" and "non-standard", I said:

I love the tranquility of the Stratocaster shape with which I am perfectly familiar and comfortable. The sound is beautiful and especially free from parasites but if this instrument allows a perfect expression, it also requires a set precise and direct.

The strat "Jeff Beck" to address this fact rather guitarists already experienced, it is a high quality instrument ...
