Hmmm . . . from the Ebay add-

"The background was that Gallagher`s record company did not like it looked when Rory Gallagher went on stage with this light blue guitar.
The hurt in their view its image to the better a well worn sunburst Strat would fit."


Doesn't ring true, that Rory would part with any of his guitars to please a record company. Especially when it came to appearances.

There is that well-known snippet from a Rory interview where he mentions Fender giving him a brand-new cream color customized strat to replace the old, beat up one, and he graciously and gratefully accepted it, but kept his old faithful sunburst strat that he bought when he was a kid, and continued to use it as his primary guitar. So, perhaps it was Rory's guitar at one time, I don't know, but I seriously doubt that anyone dictated to him what guitar he should use on stage.



watch Rory at 05:15, talking about Fender giving him a new strat to try to encourage him not use his old, faithful Strat, he theorizes they were embarrassed by him using the old one. Didn't stop him though. ;)
