Jeff Beck Guitar Bridge

 

When Jeff Beck’s first signature guitar hit the streets a decade and a half or so ago, eyebrows were raised at the audacity of both Beck and Fender to put out something so… weird.

Apart from a pair of Lace Sensors joined together at the bridge, there was the neck: it was a monster! It actually felt deeper than it was wide, and the most common description was ‘baseball bat’.

Big necks do mean big tone, but there has to be some compromise in order to make a guitar do that other important thing that’s required of it – play!

Some people did find the original Beck model to their liking, and others struggled with it because they wanted to be like their hero; but the general consensus was that it was a lump too far.

So on this latest incarnation (and the later standard Beck models), out goes the huge ‘U’ of the old model and in comes a wholly manageable ‘C’ shape. Like the Clapton, Beck’s guitar has 22 frets, but here Jeff has opted for a bit more meat.

As a player renowned for his fretboard antics, it’s understandable that he would want the extra bending and vibrato facility afforded by more metal under the fingers.

Playability
The Beck also features a select alder body and maple neck – this time capped with a rosewood board.

Other differences include the modern, two-point floating vibrato with stainless steel saddles, locking Schaller tuners and an LSR roller nut; a system that provides virtually friction-free operation for Jeff’s amazing whammy antics.

One further concession to playability is a contoured heel area for extra top-end access.

Again, Lace Sensors have given way to Fender’s ‘stacked humbucker’ Ceramic Noiseless pickups. Legend has it that, when asked what he’d like in his original signature Strat, apart from the big neck Jeff asked for fake pole-pieces to be painted on to the Lace Sensors of a Strat Plus. Doubtless he’ll be pleased with the cosmetics of his latest model.

What a great neck. The thick rosewood board, 9.5-inch radius and meaty frets make for blues-rock heaven. Big bends, heavy vibrato and speed are all catered for superbly.

The set-up is dead right, and this extends to the wonderfully in-tune vibrato system. Pull up and the top three strings give a semitone, tone and minor third respectively, making some interesting pedal steel effects possible, while pressing down on the bar allows the kind of control that Beck’s playing demands. It’s a stunning player.

Jeff Beck Guitar Solo

The scene is set with mischievous poetry, hushed wishful thinking about someone’s crashing demise. An anthemic chorus questions the dark outlook, and you knowingly do the same. If you listened to the album 2 tracks previous, you might even speculate who the subject of the fantasy is. Either way, the words suck you into their addictive escapism.

John Squire is captivating from the signature intro; hypnotic arpeggios and rushing reverb. Reni falls all around the incessant kick-drum and rising high-hat absorbed from the grooved psychedelia of the time. The two bound by Mani’s astute bass-line.

The solo is a rarity, it betters the song. The guitar is meticulously manipulated into a uncertain landscape that fragments in the rays of a serene sunrise, and you surge forward, belief renewed, accelerating on a runway towards the distant star, your soul sonicating from your body as you soar towards where anything is possible.

Solos never seemed to say much, they were noodley or obligatory and played for the player not the song. Made of Stone was different, it lifted you by the hairs on your neck and showed you another world. You were left wide eyed and wanting more.

Jeff Beck Guitar Shop

Guitar Shop represents guitar hero Jeff Beck’s return to the scene following his 1985 pop/rock-based recording, Flash; an outing that featured his one time lead vocalist, Rod Stewart. Essentially, this 1989 release provides Beck’s ardent admirers with a power-packed outing, brimming with memorable melodies, drummer Terry Bozzio’s often blistering rock drumming, and keyboardist Tony Hymas’ effective synth textures. Here, Beck surges onward in altogether stunning fashion via his quirky lead lines, sweet-tempered slide guitar work, disfigured extended notes and deterministic mode of execution. With “Behind the Veil,” the band delves into a reggae groove, featuring Beck’s lower register thematic statements and well-placed notes. Otherwise, the ensemble tackles the blues and hard rock motifs amid Beck’s crunching chord clusters, animated lines, and soaring heavenward soloing on the lovely and somewhat ethereal ballad titled “Two Rivers.” Simply put, this is a wonderfully produced effort and a significant entry into the artist’s extensive recorded legacy.
