Few rock players have emerged in the last decade with as much personality and tonal muscle as Biffy’s frontman and Simon Neil, who continues to amaze listeners by making such a huge racket with single-coil pickups.
Simon’s signature is based on his Fender Custom Shop Time Machine 60s Strat, and this Classic Vibe-derived model is loaded with great looking vintage-esque features like the tinted neck, three-ply mint green scratchplate, Custom-Vintage-Style single coils and the Fiesta Red finish.
The idea came about when Fender’s Neil Whitcher suggested a signature model: “Neil came up with the idea just before we were making [Only Revolutions] and we were delighted. My very first guitar was a Squier, so it’s come full circle. For us, it was basically getting the best possible guitars for a reasonably cheap price. We’ve used these guitars live and they sound absolutely amazing.”
It’s a versatile guitar that’ll work for plenty of styles from blues to funk, to Biffy’s own brand of riffy rock. You’re getting a far bigger slice of Fender tone and aesthetic than you have any right to at this price.
