Signature Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster
9 February 2011
Summary: I purchased my Jeff Beck Signature Strat about 6 months ago. I have been playing guitar for about 45 years and have always been a Gibson fan. I also own a '78 Les Paul Custom which I purchased new in '78. For years that was my #1 guitar. The playabilty and sound of the LP is and always will be unique like no other. At least that's what I thought until I played the JB signature Strat. Now, I must say, the JB Strat is my #1 guitar for the following reasons: 1. Weight...
Summary: Let's face it. Buying a guitar is a very personal decision. There is something about the entire purchasing experience that Fender has learned to cater to.Let's use the Jeff Beck Strat for example. Very simply, it is one of the finest guitars out there. I have a Deluxe American Fat Strat and a American Deluxe Telecaster.
Summary: I purchased this sweet lady 5 days ago, and I believe I made a great choice. I have played this guitar at a couple of different guitar stores since last year, and all I can tell you is this guitar has great tones. What a beautiful tone she gives in the neck positions! You become one with her as you put your fingers on its very well designed, almost flawless fretboard. Locking machine heads are a great plus, makes you free to bend even two tones but still in tune.
Summary: This guitar is great. The new pickups (not currently on any other Fender model) are unbelievable. If you're after super-twang, you may not like them, but if you want the Fender sound with just a little extra midrange meat and a lot more output, this is the one. This is the first Strat I've played that I can actually see myself using the middle pickup by itself. This is a great guitar.
Excerpt: Cuando yo compré allá por el año 90 mi Fender Strat Standar americana no existía aún la signature de uno de mis guitarristas favoritos: Jeff Beck, que salió tan solo un año después; si existía la de Eric Clapton pero como que no me tiraba pagar las 50-60.000 pelas de más (que entonces andábamos con la moneda patria) por lo que añadía a la Standar, principalmente las pastillas Lace-Sensor gold (esas que no se veían los imanes) que por lo visto además salieron muy malas,...
Pros: sistema de vibrato, cuerpo agradable, pastillas "Noiseless"
Cons: sólo color blanco, sonido agresivo - duro en pastillas central y puente
