It comes with everything it came with from the factory, custom shop certificate, all the case goodies. Here are the specs:
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. The first 500 guitars sold in either finish option will include a limited edition, signed copy of The Black Strat book, autographed by Phil Taylor.

I will be listing quite a few in the next few weeks, so please check my other auctions…
I buy, sell and trade from dealers and guitar friends all over the world, so I get these at a great price, and pass the savings on to you. (Mostly do this fund my own crazy guitar addiction). I am not a dealer, just a huge guitar fanatic.
I will ship to anywhere in the world. Paypal users must have a confirmed and verified address (and I will only ship to this address)… I ship UPS for USA and Canada shipping, Ups for international shipping.
Shipping will generally run about $200 for worldwide, but please contact me first for an exact shipping quote if you are buying from another country… Also, you the buyer are responsible for any taxes your country charges you on the shipment. They can be high, sometimes up to 30% or more depending on your country. Please email first with any questions pertaining to customs fees, and I will do my best to answer them for you, I ship overseas all the time, and have become pretty good at it ; ) .
Due to the overwhelming number of recent returns (for no real reason), I will no longer accept returns unless the item is not as described. All my guitars are mint in the box, unless otherwise noted. I can no longer accept returns for reasons such as “the neck is too thick for my small hands”, or “My dog just died and I have to pay for a funeral for him”. You would not believe the crazy excuses I get, not because the guitar is not exactly as described, but just because the buyer changed their minds. I am sorry to have to do this, but it is very time consuming, and gets pretty expensive in fees.
Thank you for your understanding.
Please ask any and all questions, you will love this beauty, and please check my other auctions for some more amazing and rare guitars.
