Jeff is laying it down with some killer playing on his Yngwie Strat.
Sounds phenomenal. A modern Jason/Yngwie. The pedal is cool but I'm just here for Jeff.

So clean.

Side note: I love this video of him playing this Gibson LP.

The Standard he plays second absolutely smokes the Custom he is playing at first.

Yeah i have been looking at the plumes pedal lately. A lot of really good reviews of it on youtube.

Those Fender CS's that are made to look like a vintage strat that has been "refinished" in the "paint over the original finish without sanding it" sense are certainly.........something. That one could actually pass for "legit thing found in nasty pawn shop or pond that was recently drained" from far away if the wear pattern made sense and there was some depth to the supposed "vintage strat that has been crudely refinished" look. In pictures and videos the aging on the headstock could pass for "this was sitting in a bar absorbing smoke for four decades".





I'm assuming the one in the video is supposed to be a simulation of a burst that was refinished in Seafoam, but it's not making a ton of sense to me.

Kudos to Fender (or one of the other brands that does them, can't tell from the video whether it's another shop, could be a Nash or something) for going the extra mile and making the trem look like a tetanus hazard. I wonder how they do that part of the process. Paint them like Warhammer miniatures or what? I'm assuming they don't actually corrode them, since heavily corroded/rusted bridges are extremely unpleasant to adjust.

There's some precident for this - you probably already know this but in the early days of Fender, if you wanted a Strat in some non-standard solid color, they would take a sunburst reject body with either flaws in the wood or in the burst that made it unappealing as a burst finish, and put a solid paint job on top of it. It's something you see often enough in vintage Strats in unusual finishes, so of course the relic crowd loves it.
