David Gilmour Strat Conversion

Coversion from a regular Fender Strat to a replica of David Gilmours Black Strat. The sound from the pickup combo and switching is amazing - pure Gilmour tone as well as Hendrix / Stevie Ray.

Converted to the same specs as David Gilmours Black Strat. Reliced as per the original guitar - including the filled trem route, Callaham Vintage S bridge with 4" trem arm, Fender Custom Fat 50's in the neck, Fender Custom '69 in the middle, and a Seymour Duncan SSL-5 in the bridge - custom wiring as per Dave Gilmour (note the 2 way micro switch to give neck and bridge combo in position 1) 1 ply pickguard and vintage white covers and knobs. I made use of the excellent book 'The Black Strat' written by Phil Taylor - Dave Gilmours guitar tech.

These are pics of David Gilmours actual Black Strat:
