David’s most famous guitar is his black Strat. This is the guitar you are hearing on the classic Pink Floyd albums of the seventies and early eighties. Modifications to the guitar include a shortened tremolo arm, internal shielding, and a small recessed switch that adds the neck pickup to any selected configuration.

Over the years David and his tech Phil Taylor made other david gilmour guitar rig setup modifications that were eventually decided against- for example, fitting a Kahler tremolo, adding a humbucker between two of the pickups, and installing an XLR socket. These changes have been reversed with varying degrees of cosmetic success.These days you can own an incredibly accurate replica of this guitar, by buying the Fender David Gilmour Signature Stratocaster. It includes all the wear and all the dodgy repair work – but if that’s not your style, they also do a guitar of the same spec but in “as new” (NOS – “new old stock”) condition.

The david gilmour guitar rigs neck and bridge are on the black Strat pickups that came with the guitar, but the bridge pickup is a pickup custom wound Seymour especially for David, an overwound version of SSL-1. The pickup in this guitar has been called a “SSL-1C” (with the C standing for practice), but the microphone is finally put into production as the SSL-5. To the SSL-5 guitar is a surefire way to make a step towards its Gilmour. In fact, even if you do not drive the tone, it is a fantastic pick-up in its own right that everyone should try. If you want flat pole pieces to modern touch-ray then you should go for the SSL-6, or if you want a pickup without noise, the STK-S6 is the Stack Plus version.The difference between the SSL-5 and regular pickup Strat bridge is more media, more power and more “beef”. It does not lose the character Strat, but it has a more authoritative voice that is ideal for work in advance.
