This was a gift to Gary from the late Claude Nobs, founder of the Montreux Jazz Festival, during a performance there in 1998. The guitar required extensive work ( By Gary Moore ) to return it to a playable condition, including complete re-fret, new tremolo block, replacement tuners, re-wiring and a set of Kinman noiseless pickups. With the guitar is an alternative, complete additional hardware/electronics setup mounted on a separate scratchplate, with Stratocaster single coil pickups by Seymour Duncan. They were made for Gary with a number of options, one of which is a reverse-wound single coil, providing an additional set of tones when used in certain pickup combinations.
