    I think it can be cool when builders give a nod to the past. sort of like that new Lentz pickguard and Mosrite

    Not long ago I had been browsing through some Japanese guitar retailer websites and was looking through some new Fender Japan guitars. I happened to spy what appeared to be a 70's RI with a funky looking pickguard, but since the description was in Japanese I couldn't read it. So, I had no idea what it was and just moved on. A week or so later I happened to find the same Jeff Beck vid posted above and sure enough there is the same guitar. So, if anybody wants a MIJ replica of that particular Strat then check out Fender Japan's lineup. :) It's likely a limited run model as they tend to do that quite frequently.

    Just happened to be browsing through Ikebe's site today and it looks like they have one (maybe more) of these "Jeff Beck" replicas in stock. Probably a pretty nice guitar for sub $700 too:
