From his blistering British Invasion beginnings through his amazingly varied solo career and right up to today, Jeff Beck’s Stratocaster guitar has been an integral part of his signature sound.
Features: I am reviewing a 2006 Jeff Beck Artist Series Stratocaster made in the USA. It’s Olympic White with an alder body, 22 medium jumbo frets (0.103 inches wide and 0.046 inches high), soft-C maple neck with a rose wood fret board, Fender special design dual-coil ceramic Noiseless pickups and straight-ahead five-way switching. It features Fender/Schaller Deluxe Cast/Sealed Locking Tuning Machines, American 2-Point Synchronized Tremolo with 6 Stainless Steel Saddles, a thinner â€œCâ€ Shape Maple Neck, a contoured Heel for Easier Access to upper frets, LSR Roller Nut, aged knobs and pickup covers. And it comes with a very nice tweed case from G&G and all the usual case candy. It has a neck radius of 9.5″ and the neck is slightly wider which helps keep the high E on the fret board.

When Jeff Beck’s first signature guitar hit the streets a decade and a half or so ago, eyebrows were raised at the audacity of both Beck and Fender to put out something so… weird.
Apart from a pair of Lace Sensors joined together at the bridge, there was the neck: it was a monster! It actually felt deeper than it was wide, and the most common description was ‘baseball bat’.
Big necks do mean big tone, but there has to be some compromise in order to make a guitar do that other important thing that’s required of it – play!
Some people did find the original Beck model to their liking, and others struggled with it because they wanted to be like their hero; but the general consensus was that it was a lump too far.
So on this latest incarnation (and the later standard Beck models), out goes the huge ‘U’ of the old model and in comes a wholly manageable ‘C’ shape. Like the Clapton, Beck’s guitar has 22 frets, but here Jeff has opted for a bit more meat.
As a player renowned for his fretboard antics, it’s understandable that he would want the extra bending and vibrato facility afforded by more metal under the fingers.
Jeff Beck’s Stratocaster has been an integral part of his signature sound from his early days with the Yardbirds and the Jeff Beck Group through his amazingly varied solo career. Made by the Fender Custom Shop for the Custom Artist Series, the Jeff Beck Signature electric guitar features a thinner C-shaped maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard and a contoured heel for easier access to the higher registers. Further, it’s wired with dual ceramic Noiseless pickups and has a 2-point synchronized tremolo with stainless steel saddles, LSR roller nut, aged knobs and pickup covers, and Beck’s signature on the headstock. The Fender guitar kit includes vintage tweed case, strap, cable, truss rod adjustment wrench, and saddle height adjustment wrench.
1993 Surf Green Jeff Beck Strat (wanting to buy) … My guitar instructor has two of the Jeff Beck strats. … Love my 91 midnight purple JB strat.
I bought this guitar from a collector that never played it. Because this
guitar was so clean and still had the plastic on the pickguard I decided to
store it and not play it. I now need to raise some capitol for a business
venture so I have to sell my collection.
This guitar features the monster neck no longer offered on this model as well
as lace sensors, including a dual lace sensor in the bridge position which is
actual 2 single coils instead of a humbucker giving you a great single coil and
a great humbucker sound in the bridge. A coil tap switch.

The Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar from Fender’s Artist Series reflects the significant changes Jeff made in his Strat to accommodate his constantly evolving style. The new neck is a softer C-shape, 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. Made in the U.S.
