Justin Beck is a Jewish American musician. He is the guitarist and musical writer for Long Island, New York band Glassjaw. Beck, with a high school and college buddy, Lee Tepper, also co-founded a band merchandise company called MerchDirect, which started in 1999 by selling band t-shirts over the internet and at local shows.
Beck plays Les Paul Standard and Studio guitars equipped with EMG 81/85 active pick-ups (the wine-red Studio has an 85/85 setup) through a Hughes & Kettner Triamp Mk.I head and a vintage 4x12" Vox cabinet. He also uses a multitude of effects pedals to create his unorthodox sound, including a Line 6 MM-4 Modulation Modeler, Line 6 FM-4 Filter Modeler, and a Line 6 DL-4 Delay Modeler.
He and wife, Real World alumna Melissa Howard, are the parents of Shalom Mazie, who was born March 20, 2009.
