    Great info! I love his tone on Animals, who knew it was from a DiMarzio!

    Not sure either, but guess it fits with the large headstock being there and late april '70 ... would make it the black Strat, i think.

    Cool to see the rosewood board in that second vid you posted, haven't seen so many clips of that.

    Never saw 'Green Is The Colour' before, great stuff :dude: 'Careful With . . .' one of my favourite.

    oh you know what, I didnt watch them before posting, I forgot it was a rosewood board, I think it isnt the black strat then. If I recall correctly he got the black/maple strat at the end of the tour after he had his other guitars stolen

    Great to see some Pompeii stuff here :thumb: I seen that film over and over again, never tired of it! What they play there is like epic imo, and also the visual side of it is really really special, beautiful and kind of haunting at the same time.

    I remember seeing it the first times and amongst other things thinking "wow man, that gotta be the biggest gear that any band has ever had and will ever have" - later you learned otherwise of course :laugh2: - the whole magic of that time and where they were then musically is quite special for sure, very cool movie.

    I got it mixed up for some reason, thinking about the 'Careful With...' vid you posted as being from '72. The rosewood neck should first be on in around June '72, so seems it's not the Black Strat there :hmm:
