He uses a Klon, they are what $1500?off-the-shelf? That strat is a one-of-a-kind, those pedals are pretty unusual, and the Tone King and the handwired marshall amps are certainly more unusual.
In any case... yeah... he's freaking Jeff Beck...
I`ll drink to thatIt's in the fingers, boys, isn't it? Well, it is with Jeff Beck. He has sounded the same since the mid-60's. His technique is as good as it has ever been now, but he just has such an incredible set of ears, plus hands of doom. Jeff Beck is an international treasure that makes me think most guitar heroes haven't ever been as worthy as him.
John Suhr wound them, there's a discussion on Huge racks about itDont know if it was said. But I saw his tech say a few years ago that the pickups in Jeff's strat are not the same as the ones on the JB strat fender puts out. I think he said they have three sets of pickups they use in his personal guitars. Someone wound them at Fender,I dont remember who they said it was. More or less proto-types when they first came out with the guitars
