David Gilmour - The Black Strat

1969 Fender Stratocaster - Sunburst Painted Black

The original 1969 model was bought by David at Manny’s in New York in May 1970. Originally the guitar had a maple 4-bolt neck with the large headstock as seen on the concert film “Live at Pompeii”.

It features:

  • Fender 1969 alder body with black finish repainted over the original sunburst finish.
  • Fender 1983 ‘57 reissue C shape maple neck with maple 7.25″ radius fingerboard and 21 vintage style frets.
  • Fender/Gotoh vintage style tuning machines.
  • 1-ply .120” beveled black acrylic, 11 hole pickguard.
  • Fender neck and middle pickups dated 1971 (installed the whole pickguard assembly from a ‘71 bullet truss rod Strat in June 1973) and a Seymour Duncan custom wound SSL-1 bridge pickup (installed late 1979).
  • Vintage style synchronized tremolo system mounted in 1997.
  • Custom mini-toggle switch on the pickguard for neck/bridge combo.
  • Shortened tremolo arm to 4.25″.
