Jeff Beck releasing deluxe signed copies of his new book — for a little extra $$, of course

Got a few extra bucks for Jeff Beck? If so, the Guitar God has a way for you to spend it.

Beck’s, upcoming BECK01 book is already being produced in a limited edition from Britain’s Genesis Publications; now, for a mere $500, you can grab a signed copy of the tome, in which Beck writes about his twin passions of music and vintage and automobile restoration.

The deluxe edition is, according to Genesis: “fully bound by hand in Italian leather with silver page edging and hand tooling. A stamped metal number plate — based on a Californian model from the year Beck was born — is inset into the cover. The large format book … is housed in a felt-lined solander case. Bound in ‘Corvette blue’ cloth, the case features a foil-blocked illustration inspired by Von Dutch’s legendary pinstriping designs.”

Who can resist, right? Fortunately there are some less costly options for Beck fans this summer; The guitar great will be releasing a new album, Loud Hailer, on July 15 and will be touring this summer with Buddy Guy.
