1973 USA Fender Stratocaster

I originally replaced the pickups with Seymour Duncan SSL-4s because they have a fatter output which helps with combatting electrical hum, but now I have a set of 1979 Fender pickups in it.

Some of the photos below are from when it still had the original pickups or the SSL-4s. The 79 pickups are black so they are easy to spot.

Apart from 2011 - mid 2012 and 2016 this guitar has been my main Strat. It's featured on the Audial album as well as the orchestral version of Wish You Were Here recorded at Abbey Road with Steve Mac, Alice Cooper and Rick Wakeman.
