Jeff Beck's Ten Dollar Guitar Album?

(Rock News Desk) Jeff Beck has vowed to record an album with a ten-dollar guitar just to prove how easy modern effects units have made things.

"I played a 1959 Gibson, which was loaned to me by the manufacturer because I don't own one myself. The character and tone of it, without distortion, is the something you can't get out of any other guitar," Beck tells MusicRadar. "I don't understand players who get their hands on such a great instrument then crank it up and distort it through a massive amp. If you're going to do that you might as well chuck away the Gibson and play any old thing.

"Some day I'll make a whole album with a ten-dollar guitar just to prove what you can achieve with a cheap axe and a box of tricks. But if you've got a precision instrument you should treat it with respect, and allow its strengths to come to the fore." He isn't the only guitar god who isn't impressed with today's guitarists
