Overview

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 and Gilmour's three-disc Live in Gdansk CD/DVD set.

Great Strat

By Philip

from Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Comments about Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

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.

      Comments about Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      The first thing you notice about this guitar, is the balance. It is so balanced when you play it there is no stress on your back. As weight goes, it's a Strat, they don't really weigh a lot. The neck seems to be a perfect shape. I play anything from Blues, Metal, Country and classic Rock. It can handle any thing thrown it's direction. With active control over the sound, it's a dream. When playing the Blues, if'n you want a little more kick, you flip the toggle switch to activate the the middle pick-up in either the neck or bridge position. Pure meat! You can't be a guitar vegan with this thing, it's just to blessed tasty to be untested in any type of musical situation, well maybe if you tried to play some Earl Klugh with it. But only then! This guitar is a working investment. It's not cheap, it is however, worth the cost.
