Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Signature Stratocaster (Rosewood, With Case)

No longer available at zZounds
Made in U.S. Updated version.

Innovative, tasteful, tuneful, and visionary... That's how we describe Jeff Beck, and his trusty Strat is certainly part of his signature sound. This updated model reflects the significant changes Jeff made to his guitar to accommodate his constantly evolving style. You'll notice the new neck shape is a softer "C," not as large or deep as Jeff's previous choice. Also, the guitar features the new Fender special design dual-coil ceramic NoiselessTM pickups, a contoured heel for easier access to the higher registers, and straight-ahead Strat 5-way switching.

Best Strat out there.
Sound
I bought it through ZZounds about a 1 1/2 years ago. Out of the tweed case it was the best guitar I ever owned or played. Sounds great on all 5 settings. Been using it with a Pocket Pod for the last 6 months and it can handle every sonic register I throw at it.
Features
Three noislesspickups, 5 positions...Tone and volume..whammy bar...locking tuners....Who needs more than that?
Ease of Use
Easy to play. Great action.
Quality
This one goes to "11".

Most of the artist series guitars I have seen lately are paint jobs of existing models. I haven't seen a Strat with all the features the JB has.
