    ...with a proper Gilmour switch.

    And a 3/4 scale Squier that I got for my son about 16 years ago.

    Am Special Strat

    My only black guitar at the moment, an Am Special Strat, great neck, plays and sounds great too, though I have been playing my Tele and PRS Santana SE more lately.
    Mint green early 60s style pickguard, some Mojotone Knockout pickups, they have screw polepieces, similar to the Fralin Steelpole pickups.
    Brass bridge block, Graphtech saddles, locking tuners.

    I'll play. I have a couple of black guitars, but this one is definitely my favorite:

    Here ya go. This started life as a a Burny LP Jr knockoff in TV Yellow sunburst. I like the textural difference in this one, though it scuffs very easily

    [​IMG]

    The neck pickup is a GFS Brooklyn, the bridge one is the original humbucker, which was disguised as a soapbar. :rolleyes:

    This bitsa has a birdseye/birdseye Warmoth Pro neck and GFS Memphis pickups:

    [​IMG]

    I also have an 82 black Westone Rainbow I, a '335 knockoff, but I don't have a pic.

    I'm very conservative in guitar cosmetics, black on black is my favourite colour scheme. :)

    Fender American Standard Tele - has a BWB pickguard on it now days

    I also have a black MIJ Squier Strat and a BC Rich Warlock NJ Deluxe but I doubt I will be keeping either of those much longer because I'm really digging the looks of the Music Man St. Vincent. I may be liquidating some things to fund one.

    Something pretty cool about those black guitars with the black pickguards.
