    Hello, I just picked up a black SE for $50, that I’m in the process of modifying and I was very happy to find Squier Talk...I learned a bunch from the forums already. My goal for this one is to replicate the Gilmour black stratocaster from the early 70s. Going with Rose pickups for this one.

    Welcome to ST. Yes, there are several great modders here who love the SE. Many are also fans of Rose pups. Sounds like you're ready.

  6. Well Dan … I'm pretty sure a few others have done similar "Gilmour" mods. You're in good company here. Welcome on in.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Welcome to the best forum on the internet! Can’t wait to see how your project comes along. I’m in the middle of a Gilmore’ish build myself. Are you going to wire the neck pickup to an on/off switch like he does? You can get some great tones with the neck/bridge combo.

    I’m not sure about that neck pickup switch... Since The Black Strat has changed so much over the years & there are so many versions of it; I decided I’m going for the setup of a my favorite era (1972). Any idea when that switch was installed?

    I have no idea when the switch was installed. But here is a couple things to read that explains is and another forum discussion that talks about Gilmore using the switch. It’s definitely a cool, easy, and useful mod though. Everyone should have at least one Strat with the switch. :)
