It's a really, really great sounding guitar. As a Strat goes, it's pretty standard. The only thing is the bridge and middle pickups are wired together for the bottom tone control. The bridge, if you notice the setup, has the tramkind of pulled forward to get a lot of upward pull. It's the way that you can get this to float without cutting a recess or anything like that into the guitar. So that way he can go either side, either sharp or flat. He plays this guitar so it has to be in great shape all the time," says Jeff Beck's guitar tech.more
