Fender Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster HSS 1996 Midnight Purple - Used

  • Sale
  • Regular price $2,799.00


This 50th Anniversary Artist Series Jeff Beck Stratocaster HSS was made in 1996, and is one of the rarer versions of the Jeff Beck model. This particular instrument features an HSS pickup layout, LSR roller nut and a gorgeous (rare) Midnight Purple finish. This one is in VERY GOOD condition, functions 100% perfectly with a great setup, low action and killer tone!

Overall, this guitar is in amazing shape for a nearly 30-year old guitar. There are a few places showing some wear, but only upon very close inspection. The finish has areas of very shallow scratches and wear, and just a few small (almost unnoticeable) indentations (not dings through the finish), but this thing is CLEAN; given its age. 

The neck and fretboard are in wonderful shape. The frets have some slight flattening in some areas, as well as some extremely shallow pitting in one or two spots. The neck is free of any warping, twisting or unlevel frets. The truss rod functions perfectly, and the LSR roller nut functions perfectly with no issues. The locking tuners work perfectly with no issues and very light wear. 

The electronics sound fantastic with a nice, detailed, tone that rings clear even with a high amount of overdrive. The electronics are 100% original. The pots are clean and free of any static or scratchiness.
