From blistering British Invasion beginnings through a long and acclaimed solo career of remarkable stylistic versatility, Jeff Beck has taken the Stratocaster to unbelievable sonic heights, with one of the most distinctive musical voices ever coaxed from the instrument. With classic style and special features, make his sound and style your own with the Jeff Beck Stratocaster, which ranks among Fender's most popular and longstanding artist instruments.
The neck of this instrument has a comfortable C profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), sculpted to impart a vintage-style playing feel from Fender's first golden age in the 1950s and '60s. The most prevalent neck profile shape, it's remarkably comfortable and is ideal for all playing styles.
The Jeff Beck StratocasterÈs three Hot Noiseless pickups combine warmth and punch with cutting bluesy articulation, with a screaming high-gain bridge pickup. And with FenderÈs Noiseless design, the clean, full sound is free of hum.
Urethane guitar body finishes are especially strong and durable, and will hold colors with great vividness, sheen and clarity for extraordinarily long periods.
With the strings riding over ball bearings instead of seated in a pre-cut slot susceptible to friction binding and other possible adjustment/repair issues, an LSR roller nut is a high-performance feature that quite literally eliminates friction at the nut for improved tuning stability.
For superior intonation, sustain, tremolo action and ease of adjustment, the Jeff Beck Stratocaster features a two-point tremolo bridge with modern stainless steel block saddles.This instrument features a contoured neck heel specially designed for maximum playing comfort. Rather than the traditional squared-off heel, it's smoothly sculpted for comfortably easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard.
