Jeff Beck called LP's sissy guitairs in the latest GP interview....pretty funny actually. He goes on to say how strats are so much better.

Oh....well that's true. If you stare at a LP headstock long enough it will crack...:shock:

But he's still a sissy.

This. Is what he said.

Beck:
It's a totally different animal. One is for very subtle and, I would say, more musical things that you can distract and abuse.
You can't do that with a Les Paul. It's too delicate.
It's got a very delicate tone; most people don't ever realize that because they are plugged into monstrous amplifiers
which completely, instantaneously covers up the unique sound quality it has.
All those years of development go straight out the window when you overload the amp.
He's Jeff Beck.

He can say whatever he want's

It's a pretty common complaint really. Buddy Guy has said the same thing.

Although I'm not a JB fan, what he says has been said over and over by a few musicians.
Although the same scenario can be accomplished with any guitar and a monstrous amp being over driven.

I'll bet ya that if you hit Jeff Beck with a Les Paul and with a Strat, he'd take that back...

I wouldnt really call it a diss.
If he did diss LP's tho he could be called a money grabber seen as he prob picked a nice tasty cheque from gibson with his oxblood!

I am not sure that I can find that statement offensive.
