  • 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 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.
    Seen on the live footage of the TV broadcast from the Fledah in Finsbury Park, London in 2001 and the 'Blues For Jimi' DVD, filmed in London in late 2007. Featured in the 'Guitarist' magazine, Issue 403, February 2016, Gary Moore Commemorative Edition and demonstrated on Youtube.
