In this behind the scenes footage of Paul Banks working on his new solo album "Banks," he is seen rehearsing and playing on stage with a black Fender Dave Murray Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar. Looks at the guitar can be had throughout the video, but specifically at 2:03.
In a series of Tweets with a fan, Paul Banks confirms the model of the guitar, and why he enjoys playing it:
@gchiaren: "Gear question- is your Strat a @Fender Dave Murray model?"
@bankspaulbanks: "why yes it is! I love it cuz of the humbuckers." (source)
@bankspaulbanks: "the neck length of fenders is longer than gibsons which affects the string tension which makes strats real fun for funk rhythm" (source)
The source and notes on this submission are correct.
