I am a strat man and have many guitars in my collection. Play them all too! Did not buy this because of Jeff becks style of playing but because of the features that I have come to like in a fender guitar. The roller nut, noisless pickups, cut heal for accessability and the neck shape are all solid components I want in a strat. I have an EC strat, EJ strat, MF special mahagony strat as well as many older strats. Lets face it they all have different characteristics, (it's wood) and age has something to do with the sound. You could buy two JB strats and they won't sound exactly the same. That said I want my guitars to sound different. The woods, age and neck all play a part in the sound. Thats what the volume and tones controls are for on both the amp and guitar. Every ones ears are different and guitar players in general are alwasy looking for the holy grail! OK here goes, as far as strats go I look for playability and feel. Pick ups are very subjective and depend on string type and amp played thru. I would have given this guitar 5 stars except for the set up. I am very picky and fenders have a standard set-up that meets in the middle for personal taste. I have stings I prefer and action I prefer as well as neck bow. I adjust all my own guitars and have done so for over 40 years. Spring tension on the trem block, hight of the trem block including locked down on some of my guitars is all adjusted to my taste. Once I set this beauty up to my standards it was butter. Not to everybodies liking though. Again I have some strats with a maple fretboard and some with rosewood. Both very different from each other as far as feel and sound. I can't say this guitar would cover all bases but will do a great job with the right effects. I don't have lots of effects pedals. I like the amp sound, overdrive and a little delay when necessary. Thats it! All my guitars sound great unplugged, you just know when you hold the guitar and feel it resonate thru your body. Stock, vintage or noisless pick-ups all have a different sound and that's not a bad thing just a starting point for you to make adjustments on your own. Pick up height is also important and overlooked by most personal people that set up their guitars. It takes years and of course lots of playing to get it right for your sound. Comparing this guitar against another with the exact same amp settings will not give you the same sound you are looking for. I like tweaking if they all sounded the same it would be boring. Thats why I have so many guitars and of course amps also. My wife just shrugs her shoulders but understands. Better a guitar then another woman.
So bottom line if you are interested in a Jeff Beck guitar that has the features I mentioned and are looking to add this to your arsenal I believe you can't go wrong. I give it a 10 after my fine touches. The pick ups are fine as they are,the tremelo bars works as intended, not an all out metal shredder guitar but for any thing else works gtreat for me. I play all types of music, Sundays I play Christian contemporary, and classic rock in the evenings, also touch on country and R&B. It's good to be well rounded and I love all types of music, get out and play!

I purchased the Jeff Beck Signature stratocaster back in 2005 after I saw Jeff Beck up close at a concert with BB King. I was amazed at how well the guitar stayed in tune with the enormous whammy bar abuse he put it through. He only swapped out the guitar once during his show. This guitar felt wonderful, solid, well balanced, great neck, quality throughout. I will never forgive myself because I tend to be a bit timid in a music store when I'm trying instruments out. I've been performing on stage for the last 30+ years and I still meek out in a music store. So I didn't give the tremolo a thorough workover. I own another strat with a floyd rose... I'm a big fan of the floyd rose, but only because it takes ENORMOUS abuse and stays faithfully in tune. Other than that, it's a high maintenance boat anchor. The Jeff Beck tremolo was a complete disappointment. For anyone whose style incorporates the relentless whammy bar abuse of a Hendrix, Beck, Vai, etc... you will be extremely disappointed at the failures of this tremolo to stay in tune.The sound of this guitar is wonderful. The pickups are noiseless at high gain - I play it through a Mesa Boogie. However, the pickups don't have anymore power than any stock strat. I was also hoping the bridge pickup would be warm and robust like Jeff's sound or at least like the Seymour Duncan JB pickups... but it's just like any other thin sounding Fender bridge pickup. So no JB presence here. The volume pots are smooth and the rosewood neck adds a nice fatness to the clean rhythms. But I wish the pickups were more robust with more output.I like the action very low... I actually like the strings underneath the frets - that's how low I like it. Perhaps because the tremolo is set up to float - which I like - but my guitar tech can't seem to get the action as low as I like it. The action is still nice... I'm sure super to most guitarists... but for me, I would like to be able to set it lower. The tremolo takes a little getting used to as it is very sensitive to the touch - which I really like - and the whammy bar sits up high and angles up... which I thought was awkward at first, but ended up loving it. It easily clears the volume knob when dive bombing and feels very natural for pull-ups or subtle nuance voicings.This guitar is TOTALLY USELESS for what I bought it for - which was to have an excellent sounding guitar with a quality tremolo that would stay in tune. I could have bought any other strat or decent guitar for a fraction of the price and had a whammyless backup guitar which is what this has become. The tremolo is a constant fused part of my playing style and I've found just using the tremolo in one song puts the guitar so out of tune I want to just chuck it across the stage. So I use my reliable old beat up floyd rose strat... and it's the Jeff Beck strat that has become the boat anchor... what a waste.Fender - like the Jeff Beck strat tremolo - is even more useless. I've tried to contact them, so has my guitar tech and the store I purchased it from... total non-response.I am giving this guitar a low overall rating because of the tremolo. I assume one would buy a Jeff Beck strat mainly because of the tremolo as there are so many other expensive signature strats out there that you can buy where the tremolo is not the key signature of that artist. Now maybe I just purchased a lemon that Fender won't own up to... who knows. I've taken it to a couple other respected guitar techs just for a 2nd and 3rd opinion... and they both said this is as good as it gets... at least for this guitar.

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

The paint and neck finish are flawless and have a silky feel and creamy appearance, the volume/tone control knobs installed and set perfectly. The Medium Jumbo frets (my favorite) are smooth and seamless. The vintage style tweed case is a very nice touch too.
Setup was spot on as illustrated by pinch and dab harmonics available at every fret position, very nice indeed. The neck is the perfect profile for my large hands and intonation was spotless, very pleased and impressed.
The LSR nut and the stable 2-point tremolo system Fender offers on this model are a must have for me, as my playing style incorporates heavy string bending and tremolo usage. Tuning stability is excellent and the Fender/Schaller locking tuners make string changes a breeze and not an unwelcome chore like with my JH Reverse Neck Stratocaster's vintage tuners. I guess maybe I am getting old and a little lazy too.
The Contoured Heel does afford me, much easier access to frets 18 to 22, as many of my overdubbed and layered rhythm tracks include use of both octave positions, this contour works well for me. My stable of late-80's to mid-90's Stratocaster Plus and Stratocaster Plus Deluxe necks now feel a little cumbersome on the high end of the fret board, in contrast to this neck and it's Contoured Heel. A gimmick to some maybe, not at all for me, another welcome refinement, absolutely.
I am still diligently exploring the pickups and their tonal capabilities, very different from the Gold/Blue/Silver/Red Lace Sensor Pups in the majority of my other Stratocasters from the eighties and nineties. Not quite as hot as I had anticipated, but I will get the tones I am searching for dialed in and recorded, just need more time to explore.
I do not have access to any of my tube amps and play through a small 3-watt solid state give away amp currently. I will not bring any of my other guitars and amps to my current location (GTMO) because they are irreplaceable and I am not allowed to hand carry any of it wi

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

I play clubs, events, ect. I'll play at the opening of an envelope basically. This has everything I've been looking for in a Strat. This thing really checks all the boxes for me. The neck is perfect. A bit chubbier than an American Standard. Not as big as a 50's Tele. Rosewood board which I love on a Strat. I don't understand this whole ebony board craze. People think they want ebony because it's expensive, but ebony on a Strat just makes the guitar even brighter and snappier. The old ice pick in the ear if you ask me! Rosewood is the perfect addition to a Strat IMHO. It's very well manufactured. The frets are big enough for the modern player but still has a vintage feel to it. The back of the neck is nice and silky. I like the flat radius on the fretboard. The contoured neck heel is GREAT!. I love the play-ability of this guitar. The pick-ups sound good but not great. I've always thought Fender noiseless PU's are lacking in character, but hey, a Strat is build to be modified right? I'm thinking about the Clapton Mod with the Andy Timmons treble bleed mod thrown in for good measure. Maybe some Duncan stacked PU's with the coil split option. No hum is nice tho when your knee deep in lights and electrical that are surrounding the stage. It's got the look and play-ability of a custom shop guitar in a neat little affordable package. This is the Strat I've been looking for and it's not going anywhere! Hands down this is one of THE best production model guitars (Fender, Gibson, PRS, ESP ect ect) that I've ever played.

Absolute bargain for the Strat of my dreams- I am very happy

By Stephen

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

Absolute bargain. I sold my much loved Mex Strat to buy this US made Strat beauty with everything and its so much better...every little thing about it is more refined. Cosmetic dings yes but never mind, more character building than serious and not on the front, these days many people pay extra for guitar with fake wear and fake scrapes and these are real! I bought it for the sort of guitar it is so brilliant pricing for a go to guitar with all the bells and whistles which will last me years and make me happy every time I play it and every time I look at it...The Hot Noiseless pickups are different but great and it's already set up pretty well...just had to add my tortoiseshell pick guard to make it more mine and less Jeff's, much as I love him.

    Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

    Been playing for over 40 years and have owned a few of these Jeff Beck Signature Models. This one was sold as "Blemished" but I can tell you that it arrived like new with the only flaw being the plastic was removed from the front pickguard. I would have done that anyway! Came with all the case candy and tweed case.

    Great Guitar, the neck profile has a little more "beef" on the C-Shape than say the American Standard. Roller Nut a plus, Noiseless Pickups a plus too.

    Finish was perfect but needed a set-up as the original owner modified the floating tremolo system.

    Sound is golden without hum. Does it all. The Jeff Beck Signature Model is like a Swiss Army Knife of Strats.

      Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      This a great guitar. Everyone needs at least one USA Stratocaster just the way they want it. Like most guitar decisions it was a bit of a compromise. I was going to get a USA Deluxe Strat but decided on the Jeff Beck model because I liked the roller nut and contoured neck on the Deluxe model didn't do anything special for me. I think the hotter pickups, the roller nut, the colors and neck I wanted and a better price made it a great choice for me. The lower price gives me extra cash to upgrade. I have already added the Treble bleed mod, I will replace the bridge with a Fender Deluxe bridge with pull out wammy bar, I will also replace the funny colored tuning machines with Sperzel USA locking tuners like on the Custom Shop model. The compromise will then be over. I will have my perfect Strat. Jeff Beck on the headstock really doesn't matter much, I don't mind buying Jeff a beer, who doesn't like Jeff Beck.

        Comments about Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

        After originally buying a '56 American Vintage Strat I sold it and got one of these instead.

        The Good:
        Sounds great and plays even better.
        No tuning issues.
        The beveled neck pocket is very comfortable.
        No electrical pickup buzz at all.
        Great neck feel. Not like the earlier JB's with the Louisville Slugger necks.

        The Not So Good:
        I tried out three different JB's and though they were all close, two of them had really dry, light brown fingerboards that felt rough. The one I bought has a dark oily fingerboard. So dark it could almost pass for ebony.

          Very disappointed as these new pickups sound horrible. The guitar looks great but I had to put in 4 springs as the trem was to loose and made staying in tune a problem. These pickups have no tone close to the Strat tone of my 56 reissue. They might be good if you're using lots of pedals and distortion but if you're looking for the classic strat tone look elsewhere. Very disappointed I couldn't return it even though I was willing to put more money into a Strat that has the classic tone. I'm really turned off Beck now and should have bought the Clapton or Knoffler models. I wish Fender would stop making so many different models and stick to the sound that people want for a Strat. Will try a sell or trade as I never played it except when I got it and was trying the different pickups. Like Beck lately Fender made a bomb with this model.

          I must first state that I play piano/keyboards and I am more of a collector/hack with the guitar. With that said, I have 35 guitars that include LP's, LP Customs, ES's, Strats, Tele's and several old Peavey's from the 80's (They are a steal for an American made product these days). Anyway, I am completely impressed with the Jeff Beck Strat that fender has produced.
          The overall fit and finish on this beauty is outstanding, you might think it had come from the Custom Shop. The C neck is thicker than the standard Strat and is comfortable to play for extended periods of time. The dual coil pickups are truely noiseless and they can pack a solid punch that can get more tone than just the regular single coils. Couple that with the sustain that can be achieved with this guitar and you have a very versatile instrument. Also, the roller nut functions perfectly, I had never tried one before and was amazed at how well it will keep the guitar in tune much better than the standard tremolo system.
          It is like they took the best qualities of Fender (comfort, easy of playability, etc.) and from Gibson (tone, sustain, humbuckers) and combined them into one guitar. Yes it is a few dollars more but it is worth the price. I have bought numerous items from MF over the years and have never been disappointed. Their level of service and flexibility is outstanding.
