The Black Strat is the nickname for a black Fender Stratocaster guitar played by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd’s progressive rock band. It appeared for the first time in 1970 with Gilmour Bath Festival.Gilmour bought the guitar, a 1969 model with a touch of maple cap and large doll in 1970 from Manny in New York to replace a similar guitar he bought it a few weeks tt, which had been stolen. The Black Strat was originally a sunburst color, but had been painted black to Manny. Since then it has undergone many changes (see below) and still exists today, widely cited as his favorite guitar. He still used in the majority of its current performance.
Throughout the 1970s, Gilmour alternates between using neck with maple and rosewood fingerboards on the Stratocaster. In 1972, Gilmour installed an XLR connector to eliminate the buzz from his Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face; However, it was quickly removed. He also replaced the tuners with original Kluson Tuner. In 1973, a Gibson PAF humbucker was installed between the bridge and the intermediate positions of the Strat, but it took the original single coils and put them in the black pickguard later. In 1976, the original micro bridge was replaced with a DiMarzio FS-1. This was in turn replaced by a Seymour Duncan SSL1C. In the 1980s, he replaced the bridge with a Kahler tremolo system. He also replaced the original tremolo arm shortened.
