    Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    First, I play primarily Stratocasters and have owned only American made strat's over the years so I really can't speak to MIM strats, MIJ strats, etc. I have owned two Jeff Beck Signature Strat's with the C-shape neck (not the old 'troglodyte' neck)…sold one, regretted it and bought another recently. Both were phenomenal! These are pure Strat' tone all-the-way without the 60-cycle hum. The Jeff Beck Stratocaster is by far the best quality for the price. The Custom Shop strat's are great, but I have owned American Standards/Deluxes that played and sounded about the same…ouch. The same is true about American Design Experience Stratocasters. For a production guitar, the JB Strat has the American Standards/Deluxes beat hands-down if you can stomach Olympic White or Surf Green! When they were picking colors these people must have been out taking a wiz. Regardless, this JB Strat is my go-to strat' in every situation! It is extremely versatile and very comfortable even if you prefer the soft-V neck as I do. The roller nut produces no string binding, and combined with locking tuners this thing just stays in tune! However, these guitars seem to ship with super high action so you need to make that adjustment to taste. If these strat's are not flying off the shelf, they should be!

    Beck Rules

    By George Fedorcik

    from NY,NY

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I had one of the original Beck strats with the huge neck but I hated the sea foam green color and the other colors were just as bad.When I saw this one in white I knew I had to give it a shot.The action was too low when I opened the box so after raising the action and adjusting the trem so it only goes down I was set to see just what this was like compared to the first version. I have to admit the neck felt a bit thin but after playing it awhile It felt nice and fast. The new pups are much better then the original ones and got some amazing tones played through my AC30. I always loved white strats with rosewood boards since the Beach Boys days and Al Jardine so finally Fender got the right shade of white unlike the blonde/white on the older models. The ability to go higher on the neck was a great idea and Fender really did a great job on this Strat. Fender is coming out with some great models in great colors so this Strat is such an improvement over the first try that I'm looking for a tele now . Great guitar at a great price from a company that always delivers the goods.

    the TRUTH

    By J to the T

    from Arlington VA

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    from the very beginning of his career with the yardbirds, to his first solo album (truth), to today, where he is a rock and roll hall of famer, jeff becks style has changed a lot, and the type of guitar he played changed as a result. but this guitar is versatile, features an excellent tremolo bar which earns his nickname, and is very playable. slightly pricey 4 beginners, but if you can afford it then it wont dissapoint

    Jeff Beck Artist Series

    By Ken K

    from Il.

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I give it a 5 for build quality . A 4 for factory setup . It is always a conservative setup . After I set it up the way I like it is a beautiful guitar to play . The tones are nice and useful . When setup right it will stay in tune very well for a non double locking system . It will pull off Jeff's stuff very well and will cover most types of music . Overall a Great Buy . What More Could You Ask For it's a Jeff Beck model !!!!!!!

    A Great Strat

    By Montana

    from Cali

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Always was a big JB fan and always wanted a Strat that had a tremolo system that kept guitar in tone. Pick-ups are "hot" and for the money and maybe a set-up cost - great guitar. To get a close JB sound with thsi guitar, turn tone controls down on guitar, turn up treble and bass down on amp and play with your fingers.

    Beck OLA

    By Superknown

    from Southbridge MA

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I love this guitar so much. First off the "special" not Stock noisless pickups are as quit as a Les Paul. I was shocked as to how true to form they stayed to the real Strat sound, but with a nice bite. Harmonics are a cinch to pull off almost anywhere. I was going to get the signature but I figured I'd check this opne out and I'm impressed with the Quality of sound, and physical build. Truly the best Strat I've owned or played

    The best guitar I've played or owned!

    By Psycho Shreads

    from Wichita Falls, TX

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    I have to admit that I had not heard one lick of Jeff Beck prior to purchasing this guitar (to my knowledge, anyway). I chose it based on some extensive research before upgrading from an Epiphone Casino and older Charvel Jackson. I wanted a good tremolo system that would not go out of tune. The LSR Roller Nut and locking tuning heads ensure that this stays in tune (except for the obvious temperature related stuff). I wanted pickups that would be silent if needed and these ceramic Noiseless pickups are completely silent even in buildings with wacky lights. I wanted an accessible fret board and this one is fast, and the tappered neck at the heal is perfect for accessing the 22nd fret. The tone is amazing. I play this through a Hot Rod Deluxe and with a few choice pedals, can acheive any sound I want--Blues, country, rock, Vai, Satriani (especially with some pedal help due to no humbuckers on the Strat). The best is straight throught the amp--the guitar's tone is spectacular. Since purchasing this I've bought some Jeff Beck albums to continue my schooling. Buy this Strat if you want an awesome primary guitar. I have never been dissapointed. My only upgrades at this point will be amps and effects--building around the great tone and quality of this Strat. Fender rules.
