Gary Moore’s 1996 Fender Stratocaster (HSS, Floyd Rose)

Gary used this guitar during the Dark Days In Paradise tour in 1997 as his main tremolo guitar. It was used on I Have Found My Love in You and Like Angels, among others.

The guitar is an American-built Stratocaster with an EMG humbucker in the bridge position and a Floyd Rose tremolo installed in place of the standard Fender tremolo. It is finished in black, and it featured a maple neck and a white pickguard.
