    I’ve always favored the old school tube amps. Had a Fender Super Reverb with 4 10” speakers that was just fricken awesome read somewhere it may have been intended to be bass amp, but hey, it worked well as a lead amp. Picked up a 64 Fender Deluxe, and it was a little gem as well, but didn’t have the low punch of the Super Reverb. Had a Peavy with two black widow speakers 12”. All solid state, never really warmed up to it, so I used it as a booster, lining out of the Deluxe into the Peavy to give me a little more volume.

    One of my students has one of these new solid state fenders with all the preset sounds. I hate it. I agree with jmg. Find you a nice clean tone, then throw in a few peddles, and ur done. I always used a tube screamer, phase, and a chorus. That was bout all I needed for classic rock and country/jazz. Since I never played the heavy stuff, never really needed the major overdrive pedals. Recently started using an OCD for the dirt. Kinda liking it a lot, as I can get a tube screamer sound out of it, but can beef up if I need to.

    It's not a real strat. It's a Squier. I can't tell what the name is on the autograph but no famous guitarist uses a Squier.

    Look at the picture, but yes you are right. Jeff Beck isn't playing a damn squire!

    There is a pizza place here called Red Zeppelin. They have a ted Epiphone k knockoff ot the Gibson SG335 in a glass case on the wall. Got ahat looks like BB King's signature on it. The owner told me he bought it on Ebay.

    I found out later thst BB refused to sign any guitar that wasn't a real Gipson.

    Chances are, both guitars are “signature” models.

    plenty of artists will slap their name on a budget guitar made similarly to the one they’re famous for playing.

    Slash actually has a whole line of Epiphone guitars. Aimed at starters and those with less scratch to play around with. Meant to offer a decent axe at an affordable price that looks like what their hero plays.

    So the Beck Squier is probably something like that.

    My first electric is a Squier and it doesn't have anybody's name on it. Cost $150 new.
