Rtichie Blackmore Guitar's Part 2

Ritchie Blackmore gear continued....

Ritchie Blackmore Taylor acoustics
Ritchie prefers Taylor acoustic guitars, he has various 6 string and 12 strings made by Taylor Acoustic guitars. Apparently they have a more brash and robust sound with more volume than normal acoustics. Taylor acoustic's have been oioular because of their distinctive tone and more crisp trebles.


Pickups on the Ritchie Blackmore Signature Fender Stratocaster: 1 Seymour Duncan® Quarter Pound Flat™ SSL-4 Single-Coil Strat® Pickup (Neck), 1 Non-Active “Dummy” Pickup (Middle), 1 Reverse Wound/Reverse Polarity Seymour Duncan® Quarter Pound Flat™ SSL-4 Single-Coil Strat® Pickup (Bridge)

Ritchie Blackmore signature guitar 1
Ritchie goes through some more of his collection in this clip. Some interesting guitars include his signature model with the distinctive black pickup covers, 70's headstock and pickups to his specifications.

Guitar Made of Antique wood
He also has a custom made guitar given to him with antique wood, ageing about 250 years old. Antique wood doesn't just mean it's old, what it means is it's been through hell and back, through hot and cold weather, it's expanded and constricted through the years, and over time its found itself it's shape. What this means is that this guitar is solid as a rock, it won't be affected much from temperature and humidity changes.

Ritchie Blackmore signature Fender Stratocaster 2
Ritchie has designed a new stratocaster made entirely of one piece of wood, unlike most guitars where the neck and body are glued or bolted together, this guitar neck and body are one piece. Ritchie has also specified the use of new century pickups. The neck is also concave or scalloped, as Ritchie Blackmore prefers to get a good grip of the strings of vibrato.
