I never saw Chris playing Let's Dance live on Pinky! The song was always in D Major and was always played in Standard tuning live. On the record there are some slight parts where he might have used Pinky - but never live.One of the surprises concerning the guitars used for certain songs through this tour and their tuninig, is the appearance of Bluey strat on Let's Dance. Chris usually played this song with Pinky strat which is always in open E, while Bluey was always in standard E tuning. So that, Chris either changed the key in Let's Dance (like he did with On the Beach to fit in Pinky's open tuning) or changed the tuning of the Bluey strat.
In 2014 it was Bluey
In 2012 it was the brown one with the Humbuckers
In 2010 it was Bluey
In 2008 it was Bluey
In 2006 it was the brown one with the Humbuckers
In 1998 it was Bluey
In 1993 it was Bluey
These were the concerts I attended but I think that he always played it on Bluey during the old days, too.
At least from old footage I saw that he played Let's Dance live in 1987 also on Bluey.
In the official video clip from '87 he surely he can be seen with Pinky - but he's not playing but rather miming...
