I'v had it for a couple of months and already made a few videos for youtube where you can hear it. They should make all strats with the LSR roller nut and Sperzel locking tuners. This guitar stays in tune and is probably the perfect strat and maybe the perfect guitar named after the perfect guitarist or as Chet atkins would call Jeff Beck " a certified guitar player" (CGP). Customer support was outstanding as I was unaware of the little spring in the tremelo hole and it must have fell out when I unscrewed the tremelo arm to put it in the case.Jeff Krause of the custom shop sent me a couple of them.(they keep the tremelo arm in place where Jeff keeps his) . Just buy this guitar and your search for "the guitar" will be over and you can spend more time learning how to play it. Ed Fleck

First the set up wasn't good out of the box. This is no big deal I can usually set up a guitar in an hour or so. However to get the intonation right I had to take the springs out to get the sliders back enough. Now the low E and A strings are tight against the back plate. Which means the bridge itself was placed too far forward :( Then I adjusted the spring tension so when I pull the whammy bar I get a whole step down on the low E string. When I did that the bridge is tilted forward, which is OK but then I wanted to lower the strings to compensate for the height. I brought the bridge all the way down but that wasn't enough. So I pulled the neck off and sanded down the body side to give it a little bit more angle. Ok now that's good too. Then I played the guitar for a while and it was pretty good. But a few weeks later it wouldn't stay in tune anymore. Hmmm . . . So I took the strings apart and inspected the tuners and the roller nut. They were OK. Then I took the bridge apart, there it is. The base plate where it pivots on the 2 posts, the chrome was coming off. What a terrible idea to chrome plate such an important part. It really should have been stainless steel or better yet titanium. Not only that but the way they machined it was so rough. I took my dremel tool and under magnifying glass ground down the chrome then reshaped the metal underneath. For it to work properly it has to be very smooth and should fit inside the posts just right. Then I put it back together. Now the tremolo works smoothly and it stays in tune. For how long? I don't know. This guitar is put together fast and some of the parts are cheap. Considering the price tag this is unacceptable. Also I wish Fender would make a thicker whammy bar so it doesn't flex so much. It'd also be nice to have an option on whether to have a plastic tip or not.

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Artist Series Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I am not the greatest guitar player, but I do have a lot of fine guitars. While this is the second most expensive of my 20, it is hands down the best of the lot and of the 5 Fenders I own. It is smooth and creamy to play and that describes the sound as well. There are crunchier pickups in the world, but I'm happy with the tone and adaptability of these. I bought mine about a year and a half ago - therefore, it has some slightly different hardware (maybe just the pups) from the models other reviewers discussed, so I thought I'd do anyone considering it a favor and say IMO it is a very well crafted, great sounding guitar with excellent design elements. You'd be doing yourself a disservifce not to at the least try it. And you won't go wrong if you buy it, esp. with MF's return policy. My favorite guitar.

    sweetest guitar I own

    By chris kaufman

    from NY

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Artist Series Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Smooth fretboard, great neck for me, with smallish hands. Very responsive electronics, tone controls. I am still deciding whether I love the pickups themselves, though with tweaking I can get most any sound I want w/pedals. A truly fine guitar; I feel can tell it is great wood from the vibrations and transfered tone. It's expensive; I was lucky enough to see it advertised elsewhere for less, and after I showed them the online ad, GC made good on its price guarantee with absolute honesty, and alacrity, right on the phone while we talked. Impressive on that front. Guitar was set up just right for me. Stays in tune like the other couple of very solid guitars I own. I'm frankly not a great guitar player, but when I bend notes on this guitar, for some reason, I'm a lot more likely to hit the note I'm aiming for. I got the white version; which is not paper-white but the look of a tiny tiny bit of grey mixed in, offset by a white opickguard. Looks beautiful IMO. Surf green might be more distintive, but I like the classy look of the white.

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Artist Series Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I am a big fan of Jeff Beck and his work and I play similar sounds like him and I love the tone and sustain from his signature strat. I used a friends and the second I saw it I wanted to get it. I started playing using the neck pickup and the sound was so clear and pure, I recommend this guitar to any Jeff Beck fans or anyone who loves to play solos!

    Surprising Guitar

    By Guitar Freak-qzTBo

    from Mexico City

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Artist Series Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I got this guitar in October I don't know why I got I just thought I should have a little Beck sound in my shed; so I went to pick it up and after about 45 minutes with the tech; it got the perfect smooth as silk setup with Ernies 9's, perfect I mean perfect floating bridge and amazing tone. I went home and debated the idea of gigging with it that same night (you really shouldn't gig with a new instrument until you've gotten acquainted with it) so I took it to the gig and was blown away; I can do 4-5 note blues bending effortlessly, staying in pitch perfectly even when abbusing the tremolo; slowly but surely through 5 more gigs and about 5 string changes this has become without me wanting to, my number 1 instrument; I play it at gigs; at home and every time I pick another instrument I just want to get back to Whitey; my only complaint is that the tremolo tip should also be aged; mine isn't; other than that this guitar has surpassed my expectation and blows away guitars that cost two or three times what this cost; at least mine DOES; I know this has not been the case for everyone; but my experience has been very blissfull; I now own a perfect tone / blues / rock machine.

    Jeff Beck custom shop

    By trajan96

    from LA

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Artist Series Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Only complaint is the tremolo bar should be a pop in and more durable. I finally switched out the bridge for a Gotoh 510 stainless and no more problems. For those who mentioned tuning problems put on heavier strings and add an extra spring to the bridge. I play 4 to 5 hours a day hard and constant tremolo work and no tuning problems at all.

    OH MY GOD

    By zildjian player

    from Paris, Texas

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Artist Series Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I played this guitar recently and I was blown away. The neck is fast and feels amazing, the pickups have an amazing smooth sound with a bit of bite, it stays in tune VERY well, it's beautiful, and it is the nicest guitar I have ever played, Strat or otherwise. The single coils are quiet but still have that single coil sound. They are the best single coil pups made today. The neck feels amazing, better than ANY guitar I've ever played, and I've played JEMS, Carvins, gibson, PRS, Jackson, and no other guitar feels as instantly comfortable or sounds as perfect as this axe. I could not find a single issue with this guitar. Even through a cheap Fender Frontman, I could hear what a beautiful sound this instrument can make. I can't imagine what it would sond like through a quality tube amp. Basically, if you have the money, buy this guitar. It sounds amazing, looks amazing, plays amazingly, and is made by an amazing company whose higher-end axes are worth every penny.

    THE HOLY GRAIL

    By Shadesofcraig

    from Connecticut

    Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Artist Series Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I have been playing guitar now for 35 years and this is the nicest guitar I have ever played. It is well worth the extensive price if you ask me, it is the smoothest guitar and it is just begging to be played. If you like Jeff Beck then you are going to love this guitar, plus it is signed by the man himself, how cool is that???
