Gilmour's "Black Strat" has remained a fixture in both recording and live performances throughout his incredible career, a guitar that has come to define the artist and his popularity with fans.
Originally dark red, Gilmour had the guitar refinished in jet black and a custom 'short-scale' trem arm made before upgrading the single coil pickups to a Seymour Duncan SSL-1 in the bridge, Fender 69' Custom in the mid and a Fender Fat 50's in the neck.
  The addition of a micro selector switch installed beneath the scratchplate (with only the tip exposed), enabled Gilmour to also run both the bridge and neck pickups at the same time - a combined set-up responsible for many of David's signature tones and solidfying the Strat's popularity with his fans.
