We do not know what model or what song was (e).

In the US tour of Pink Floyd in October 1970, David bought a pair of used guitar at a pawn shop in Seattle. Among them, a pedal steel guitar Fender 1000. The two were Passage Nge with 8 chain bonds on each (David probably used six of them), Fender humbucker tone and Volume Rkeregler and a selection neck and 10 pedals. But David was never used them, and they were then removed (as described in the documentation DSotM to see 2003).

The 1000 is the first time for the recording of one of these days (Meddle 1971) used. Double neck again in 1973.The big em scope for the dark side of the moon shots (1972-’73) used – but David would perform the song on a Stratocaster with an open chord Em (EBEGBE) vote 1971 Breathe and Gro Gig in the Sky with a G chord open tuning (DGDGBE).

David Gilmour Guitar Solo Comfortably Numb

Comfortably Numb” is a song by the English rock band Pink Floyd, which first appears on the 1979 double album The Wall. It was also released as a single in 1980 with “Hey You” as the B-side. It is one of only three songs on the album for which writing credits are shared between Roger Waters and David Gilmour. The chorus melody was written by Gilmour while Waters contributed the lyrics and the music for the verses. The song had the working title of “The Doctor”.[3] An early version of the song was included under this title on the “Immersion Box Set” of The Wall, released in 2012.The song is one of Pink Floyd’s most famous, and is renowned especially for its guitar solos in the middle and at the end of the song.[4] In 2004, the song was ranked number 321 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[5] In 2005, it became the last song ever to be performed by Waters, Gilmour, Wright, and Mason together. In 2011, the song was ranked 5th in the BBC Radio 4’s listeners’ Desert Island Discs[6] choices. The two guitar solos were ranked as the greatest guitar solos of all time by both Planet Rock listeners and WatchMojo.com.

Comfortably Numb as a song is definitely one of the highly rated songs of Pink Floyd, but not his best solo, maybe one of the best. Most of the live versions are very good though. Some songs which have better solos according to me would be Echoes, Dogs, Shine on you crazy diamond, Money, High Hopes. I could go on and on when it comes to David Gilmour and his solos but these are some solos that you should definitely listen to.
