Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Stratocaster NOS Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Based on an iconic instrument
  • Close cooperation

Based on an iconic instrument
The Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster, based on David's famous "Black Strat" guitar, represents a cornerstone of Pink Floyd's revolutionary and incomparable sound. Gilmour's original "Black Strat" is featured extensively on The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall, and his critically-acclaimed 2006 solo effort, On An Island.

Close cooperation
The Fender Custom Shop worked hand-in-hand with Gilmour and his longstanding guitar technician, Phil Taylor, to create his signature model, a reproduction of the Black Strat-complete with its unmistakable look, sound and feel. Featuring black lacquer over 3-color sunburst alder body with a black pickguard, 1-piece maple neck, custom pickups, and David's now-famous electronics and shortened vintage tremolo arm, the David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster is as beautiful, powerful and idiosyncratic as David's playing. Additionally, Gilmour's signature guitar comes with a custom case, Evidence Audio high-end guitar cable, David's three-disc Live in Gdansk CD/DVD package, and a copy of Phil Taylor's The Black Strat book.

The David Gilmour Signature "Black Strat" a Sweet(water) Deal

I received my NOS today & opened the box. No damage.Yeah! It's not the old tweed case, but it is a wicked sharp case and I love it. When I opened the case, my doubts began to melt away as I beheld that beautiful maple neck and shining black body. The green lining inside the case and the Fender Custom Shop Logo with the guitar's name under it make it very special indeed. This guitar plays like a dream, and the fit & finish is superb. The tone isn't just Pink Floyd, your tone options seem endless with all the pickup switch positions and tone knobs. I'm extremely happy to own and be playing this masterpiece for the rest of my life. Thank you Fender Custom Shop!!!!
Music background: Amatuer in love with playing guitar for 38 years and will be for life!!!!
