David Gilmour and the Fender Custom Shop are extremely proud to release one of the most iconic and highly-anticipated musical instruments of the past 50 years, the Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster, based on David Gilmour’s famous “Black Strat” guitar.
A cornerstone of Pink Floyd’s revolutionary and incomparable sound, David 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 David Gilmour and his longtime guitar technician, Phil Taylor, to create his signature model, a reproduction of the Black Strat—complete with its unmistakable look, sound and feel. Featuring a Black nitrocellulose lacquer finish alder body with a black pickguard, one-piece maple neck, custom pickups, and David Gilmour’s now-famous electronics and shortened vintage tremolo arm, the David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster is as beautiful, powerful and idiosyncratic as David Gilmour’s playing. Additionally, David Gilmour’s signature guitar comes with a custom case, Evidence Audio™ high-end guitar cable, David Gilmour’s three-disc Live in Gdansk CD/DVD package, and a copy of Phil Taylor’s The Black Strat book.
