Fender® sells the David Gilmour Signature Series “Black Strat” for around $4000. This custom replica that I have constructed is made from similar materials and contains all the same electronics (including “magic switch”) as the real deal. Played side by side you would be hard pressed to hear or feel any difference between the two. Why can I offer mine for nearly one quarter the cost? The simple answer is that Fender® knows with Gilmour’s name attached to it they can get a premium price.
The guitar is available to be shown in the greater Burlington area by appointment. Please contact me at email@example.com for more information.
