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

Based on an iconic instrument
The Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Stratocaster Relic, 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.
