    I'm pretty certain it was a Vintage Stratocaster. And yes, the tones are absolutely stunning on that album. Shout outs to "Mother", "The Thin Ice", and "Comfortably Numb" which are without doubt, some of the finest solos not only on that album, but ever created.

    If it was Snowy's it was likely his '56, though I am sure that Dave has access to any LP he wants.

    What I really dug was this "But still, it's nothing so involved that it would have made that part sound good if Dave's playing hadn't been so brilliant. That's his first take too!"

    So: a '56 Les Paul with single coil P90's plugged direct into the board with some compression? OK...I'll buy that. Thanks, Lew

    This is correct, except it wasn't a 59, it was earlier. Direct into the board.

    this site also -

    Gilmour also owns a 1959 Gold Top Les Paul with P-90 pickups that was used to record the solo for Another Brick In The Wall part 2

    Occasionally, other guitars would be employed in the studio or live, such as a Telecaster or Les Paul. Some non-Strat highlights include an early-50s Gibson Les Paul Standard “Goldtop” (with P-90 pickups) used for the famous solo in “Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2

    Hmmm....a '59 Les Paul with P-90's? That's suspect right there...I thought '56 was the last year for P-90's?

    I don't have the album but the version of the tune I'm talking about is the one they play on FM Radio fairly regularly.

    Thanks!

    Another brick in the wall has to be a strat. You can tell by the slight instances of quack in the solo. What amp did Gilmore use for that song? That has to be the pinnacle of tone for us mere mortals!

    Yeah...I was thinking of the tune: Another Brick In the Wall. I always assumed it was a Strat with a fair amount of compression. But was it direct or through an amp or what? Sounds kind of direct to me.
