2006 Fender Stratocaster Jeff Beck Artist Series

Bought this 2006 built one Stratocaster in 2009 @ music butik (Darstadt/ Germany). It got some aging by heavy playing. Love the seafoam green color. Guitar got a three piece alder body. The neck is not as fat as the ones from the first Jeff Beck series in 1991 and they changed the old roller system for a better LRS Roller. In combination with the locking tuners it stays in tune. String changing is easy. Here are the specs:
