In a world where so many guitar players have no clue what the volume and tone controls are for on a guitar he showed us they are just as important as the strings. He played the WHOLE guitar, even using the trem springs to sculpt his sound.

    He left beauty in the world through his imagination.

    Genius through and through.
    Part of his innovation came from how he used his hands, rational choice and innate ability in cooperation. Silly to argue one over the others: obviously thought, emotion, and physicality work together. Innovation is a result.

    Ever heard of José Carioca?

    Re: Jeff Beck's Strat

    I have no idea what’s coming in newer Fenders, and never played a Professional (which is what they’re calling the US standard line).

    But my 2013 AmStd has a Switchcraft Jack, Oak Grigsby switch, Fat 50s pups allegedly built in their custom shop, CTS pots… nicely built neck and body with perfect neck pocket fitting, good frets and played well right out of the box. I can’t complain and it is FAR more guitar than the two Gibson SG 61RIs I owned, and nukes all the cheaper guitars I’ve come across.

    Maybe the standards fell after that period, or mine is another one that slipped QC
