Tribute Series Jeff Beck Esquire

Fender Jeff Beck Tribute Series Limited Custom Shop Relic Esquire.

Ein Limited Jeff Beck Custom Shop Tribute Series Instrument der Oberklasse. Wohl die beste Esquire die je gebaut wurde.
Die Tribute-Telecaster von Jeff Beck basiert auf einer seltenen Esquire aus dem Jahre 1954, die man auch schon bei den Aufnahmen zu “Heart Full of Soul” hören konnte. Selbst der zweiteilige, sehr leichte Eschekorpus hält sich vom Design an Jeff´s Original Gitarre, besitzt auch den Hals im 10/56-Profil und ist an den Seiten leicht abgerundet. Desweiteren wirkt diese atemberaubende Gitarre optisch als hätte Mr. Beck bis vor kurzem noch selbst damit gespielt, was man auf den ersten Blick am Griffbrett, am Finish und an den Mechaniken sehen kann. Um diesen Augenschmaus noch zu perfektionieren, wurde die Rückseite der Kopfplatte noch mit einer Unterschrift des Custom Shop Master Builders C.W. Fleming versehen. Besonders erwähnenswert ist, neben dem genialen Aussehen, der Handgewickelte Tonabnehmer, und Regler die von Abigail Ybarra akribisch dem original nachempfunden wurden, damit jeder die von Jeff bekannten Volume Swell und Wah-Wah Sounds kreieren kann. Die Gitarre kommt in einem spezielles Flight-Case, außerdem werden ein aine Repro eine alten früh-50er Fender Gigbags und ein Vintage-Gurt sowie ein Custom Shop Echtheitszertifikat mitgeliefert.

Jeff Beck Esquire Review

Jeff Beck was one of the defining guitar players on the English 1960s and 1970s scene and is one of the forefathers of the future instrumental rock and metal and shred. Jeff is famous for playing with his fingers, instead of the pickguard, which gives him a very special and instantly recognizable tone. Over the decades, Jeff has played a multitude of guitars, but has always returned to his favorites, Fender. Limited Edition Jeff Beck Tribute Esquire is a small series model dedicated to both Jeff Beck and legendary Esquire guitar. It comes with heavily worn White Blond paint on the ash body. Classic Telecaster bridge is installed on the top and it is fronted with a single-coil pickup in the bridge position. Maple neck is bolted to the body and topped with a 21-fret maple fingerboard.

Jeff Beck Esquire Original

In 1985, speaking of the ’83 Action Research into Muscle Distrophy (A.R.M.S.) Tour that united Yardbirds alumni Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton, the latter stated, “At that time and for many months after that, I began to think of Jeff as probably being the finest guitar player I’d ever seen. And I’ve been around. I still think that way, if I really sit down and mull it over.”

Of Beck’s gunslinger image, he added, “There’s something cool and mean about Becky that beats everyone else.”

But Beck was anything but cool and mean when he celebrated the music of Les Paul and such early rock and roll heroes as Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps at Paul’s former home base, the Iridium nightclub in New York City – preserved on the DVD Rock ‘N’ Roll Party, Honoring Les Paul and its CD counterpart of the same name. Decked out in a tailored outfit identical to the powder blue, pleated pants and three-tone blue shirt-vest Vincent wore in his favorite movie, The Girl Can’t Help It, Beck couldn’t wipe the smile off his face. He more than did justice to eight of Les Paul’s best-known songs (on a Gibson Les Paul, of course) and rock and roll classics from Vincent’s “Cruisin’” to the Shangri-Las’ “Walking In The Sand,” the Shadows’ “Apache,” Big Joe Turner’s “Shake, Rattle & Roll,” and, of course, the Rock ‘N Roll Trio’s “Train Kept A-Rollin’,” which Beck made famous in 1965 with the Yardbirds. The evening also included lively cameos from Brian Setzer (on Eddie Cochran’s “Twenty Flight Rock”) and Gary “U.S.” Bonds (on his 1960 hit, “New Orleans”).

A perennial in any guitarist’s short list of all-time greats, the 66-year-old is currently enjoying perhaps the biggest crossover success and recognition of his 45-year career. And, like all things Beck, he’s achieving it on his own terms, doing things that shouldn’t equate to mass appeal: an album of mostly instrumentals backed by full orchestra, followed by a stroll (more accurately a drag race) down memory lane, wrapped around a tribute to a guitar legend a generation older than him.
