    Been wanting to get this guitar for a decade. 1987 surf green Strat plus in the JB combo Surf and Rosewood. I made a custom strap to go with it which is what he used back then and still wears these days. 2” leather, Schaller strap locks and the 3 metal chevrons. Basically his main axe from 89-94. :D

    Good for you, esphanneman! I like and have owned Surf Green and Olympic White. For
    the last twenty years I've nearly always had one or both.

    I got a new Surfer Buddy when I retired last year; and named him Mr JB Greene. They all play and feel distinctly special, if not better than all other Stratocasters... for me.

    I will likely keep this the rest of my life, and add another Olympic White to my small collection when affordable to me. Perhaps the next will be a mint pre-owned JB Strat; simply to obtain economies of scale, after depreciation since I only buy Artist level JB's for my non-professional purposes.

    So anyway, welcome, and I hope you enjoy your Jeff Beck Strat as much as most owners I know. I only just today joined. Heck, if I'd seen this sooner, I'd have already been a member.

    I usually adorn my JB Strats with genuine Fender Pearloid Moto White Pickguard and brighter chrome locking Fender/Schaller Tuners. I welcome feedback about its look.

    Don't forget to buy the tiny tremolo arm springs; they are inserted into the bridge hole before you thread in the trem arm. The tension it creates help keep the arm where you tighten it to. Careful not to overtighten so as the extend spring life... They become compressed and less effective every few months (weeks) depending upon how frequently you get Olympic with your Tremolo Arm!! Good luck and Enjoy!
