Jeff Beck's Guitar Shop is the fifth studio album by guitarist Jeff Beck, released in October 1989 through Epic Records. The album reached No. 49 on the Billboard 200 chart[4] and later won the award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the 1990 Grammys;[5][4] this being Beck's second album to win that award, after Flash (1985). "Stand on It" reached No. 35 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart; "Sling Shot" was featured in the 1990 horror comedy film Gremlins 2: The New Batch; several tracks were also used as part of the soundtrack for the "South Atlantic Raiders" episodes of the British comedy series The Comic Strip Presents. In a further move from his previous jazz fusion stylings, Beck adopts a more straightforward instrumental rock approach on this album, save for two tracks on which drummer Terry Bozzio provides spoken vocals.
