    Looks like I'd need to start a google account to view your photos. (No thanks :)
    But I'm sure you have a beautiful guitar. I'll take your word :)

    After a two month wait, my JB arrived yesterday. It also found its way into my avatar!

    Here's my JB Strat, Olympic White. This is my 3rd (and best) Strat at the moment.

    I'm considering swapping the pups for a Suhr V60LP set, and upgrading to a Callaham steel block. What do you guys think?

    Peace!

    Hey all Joined the JB club today. Iam primarily a Gibson guy owning Les pauls,Es 335 SG ES 137 My only fenders were a MIM TELE an mim 08 STRAT and a MIM classic players 60s strat ,Great guiter by the way I just gravity towards the Gibsons but you have to have a strat and a tele in your stable rigjt ?while helping a relative pick up a used gun case from his friends dingy basement I Saw a guitar epi SG I asked the guy what he played it thru.He said he had an epi amp.He also said he had an amp that hadnt worked in 40 years and he was using it as an end table..Imagine using a 1966 Fender black face deluxe reverb for an end table !!! Filthy dirty hadnt worked since the 70s !!! He wanted 300 !!! AFTER A RECAP JOB I have an all original fender deluxe speakers,trannys even the tubes rca,mullards ..unbelible luck..needless to say it makes every guitar sound better especially the Fenders .figured i needed an american made strat now.!!!recently found After a few week search for an American strat ,Stores blowing them out to make room for the Pro and elite series,a 2014 Jeff Beck strat ..Iam in Fender Heaven right now..

    35268A81-F68E-44F7-9512-1257CBC5DCDE.jpeg Okay so it’s almost 2 years since the last post but I figured it was time someone updated this!

    1991 JB Signature in Midnight Purple. And for everyone who comments about the neck thickness, this is an early 91 with the darker stained neck and you can see how little relief is cut away from the headstock. It’s not straight back but it’s only a few millimeters. It runs back like this the entire length. No taper. It is without question the most comfortable and best sounding strat I have ever played. I sold a near mint original 87 strat plus to get this and would do it 100 times over. It’s a light alder body, sustain for days.

    Oh yeah, and Jeff played his during the 93-95 era and most noteably for me during his Amused to Death cameos for Roger Waters. What god wants part 1 is an awesome example of this guitar in action. Where are the rest of these owners hiding!

    I found this 2012 locally about a month ago. Basically unplayed and sitting in the case with all hang tags. Still setting it up to my liking, with a little tweak here and there, on a near daily basis. image.jpg

    Greetings! I recently purchased a 2014 Jeff Beck Strat I just wanted to know which trem arm does it come with? Mine didn't come with one and I would like something that's exactly like the original. Thanks!

    I believe that it is the traditional American threaded version, at least my 2012 is.

    I just saw the JB video, 'Still On the Run.' It's pretty good. What do you guys think?

    Alright people! It is getting a little slow in here...Name a favorite JB song or two. I'll start: 'The Pump,' from the album There and Back and 'Head for Backstage Pass,' from Wired. I also like, "Constipated Duck,' from Blow by Blow.

    Just so you know...this is a very exclusive club. We keep are numbers and posts small on purpose and we don’t talk about it...Sometimes moody,
    temperamental, and mostly reclusive...

    I'm looking for a Jeff Beck strat - gen 1, split wilkinson, surf green preferred.

    Anyone interested in selling?

    I'm in the UK and willing to work with a seller on CITES.

    Don't forget the Surf Green Strat Club on page 5! There are a number of JBs there...
