Jeff Beck. Better player.
FIGHT!! FIGHT!! FIGHT!!
Although I like the sound of SRV himself better, I like the specs of the JB better. For that reason, I'd take the JB and not the SRV. But it really is a matter of preference
For me, the SRV is like a 1962 american vintage, but fancier. And the JB is like an American Elite, but fancier.
They are quite different strats, which
Nah I don't have a dog in the fight, Hendrix would smoke them both. That was just an impressively worthless response.
I can't see how there can be a better answer...
I'm just a thawed out caveman Luthier's assistant....
That is why I ended up selling my SRV Strat. I could not get a handle (pun intended) on the lefty trem.
With the bar in that position, you can forget about palm muting.
Both the man and the guitar, better players, imo.
I vote the SRV, just b/c I really love the neck, so you may want to try one before deciding.
FWIW, my 2010 CV Strat has a nice beefy neck. Thickest neck of my 4 Strats.
Buy a used MIM and upgrade it. I find Signature guitars senseless.
I'm FINE. Get this:
My vote is for the Jeff Beck.
I gotta say that’s the guitar I’m looking for
JB has tone control on bridge pickup and SRV doesn't.
The necks are different, and the Jeff Beck has changed over the years. The original (1992?) had a baseball bat like the SRV. The later years (mine is a 2013) are thinner, but still very fat compared to American Standards. The newest Jeff Beck iterations, I think, are the same as American Standards.
Hate to say it but if I’m gonna spend that much on something new it wouldn’t be a fender I’d rather take that cash and buy a older fender. Just my opinion
I never understood putting a left handed trem on a right handed guitar. It makes no functional sense.
I like seeing SRV playing one though!
