Rickenbackers, Gibson SGs and Les Pauls, Schecters; Pete Townshend has played and smashed to smithereens numerous electric guitars over the years. His flirtation with the Fender Stratocaster started 1966-68, but it wouldn’t become his number one electric choice until the first Who reunion tour in 1989.
In the years since, Townshend has used modified Eric Clapton Signature Stratocasters strung with .011-.052 gauge strings. The key difference between the stock Clapton models and Townshend’s is the addition of a Fishman Powerbridge used to blend in faux acoustic sounds.
Townshend’s tech Alan Rogan talks through his rig here.
