Beautiful, powerful, unique, and as idiosyncratic as Gilmour's playing.

The David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster Guitar from the Fender Custom Shop has an alder body, black or black over three-color sunburst finish, a black pickguard, a one-piece straight-grain maple neck, custom pickups, and Gilmour's now-famous electronics and shortened vintage tremolo arm.

A cornerstone of Pink Floyd's incomparably revolutionary sound, Gilmour's 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. The Fender Custom Shop worked hand-in-hand with Gilmour and his longtime guitar technician, Phil Taylor, to create this signature model instrument, a detailed reproduction of the Black Strat-complete in its unmistakable look, sound, and feel.

The David Gilmour Signature Strat comes with a custom Fender guitar case, an Evidence high-end guitar cable, Gilmour's three-disc Live in Gdansk CD/DVD set, and Phil Taylor's 2007 book about the guitar's history, The Black Strat.

  • Great Strat

    As reviewed by Philip on 9/16/2014

    I love this guitar. It feels great. If his feels like this, I understand why David Gilmour likes his. I love the sound it makes with the treble boost circuitry. It doesn't sound the same as any of my other Strats. The guitar wasn't inexpensive but I consider it to be a good value.

  • A Great Sounding Strat

    As reviewed by David on 12/15/2014

    I bought the relic version and this may be the best sounding strat in which I have ever played. Typically, I don't use the bridge pickup on my other strats because they can be a bit shrill, but this one is perfect. It is especially good when you use the toggle switch and blend it with the neck pickup. I really like the neck pickup and is the one I use the most. One is able to really dial in that Gilmour tone.....The neck is wonderful and allows easy movement up and down the fret board. Expensive? Sure, but I traded gear to get it. Worth it? Well....that is a good question and is up to each individual. Because I traded gear to get it, so play it! You will be delighted.
