Fender David Gilmour Stratocaster

I had a chance to sit down and play one of these today. It’s not everyday I get to play a 5000 dollar strat.

I was really disappointed. The back of the neck was pretty slick but the fretboard was gummy and thick. The relic job was cheesy looking. It did have some nice guts to it, and sounded nice, but the playability was shizer.

I was tempted to steal the mini trem arm as it was the coolest part of the whole rig. They should just sell those, I’d buy one.

I’m surprised at the lackluster job fender’s custom shop did. I bet they did a much better job replicating SRV’s Lenny and number 01 when they did the limited run of those. Why are they so inconsistant?
