There are several stories about what was actually in David Gilmours Black Strat,  I have reviewed many articles and this is my version.  David’s bridge pickup was a Dimarzio FS-1 and having owned several originals in the past I am very familiar with it.  My bridge is wound to 13k for a big fat punchy tone that breaks up crisply with drive.  This is great versatile pickup for anyone looking to break away from that traditional thin Strat bridge pickup tone.
