Gilmour Scratchplate Pickguard Summary:
Having built more than a dozen ‘Black Strat’ tribute guitars, customers started to ask for complete Gilmour Scratchplate Pickguard assemblies. This is now available uniquely through Ironstone Custom, allowing you to complete the majority of the guitar to your own preferences, then just drop in (a simple 3 wire connection) a professionally hand wired and fully tested scratchplate assembly.
Check out the sound clip / videos below as well as the build options tab.
Thanks to Mick Ryan for his sound clips of a Platinum based scratchplate playing a medley of well known Floyd pieces. Recorded direct to pc via a Boss Gx700 effects unit.
As a demonstration of the ‘bridge in series’ switching capability of these Gilmour plates, have a listen to this high gain tone video (bridge and middle in series).
Finally, thanks to Ian Gorse for a YouTube ‘Pink Floyd medley’ using an Ironstone Gilmour scratchplate (with upgraded platinum pickup set) on a ’91 Squier Strat. Below the video is an MP3 of the Time solo from the video recorded using a Line 6 Pod XT.
