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 Gilmours famous Black Strat guitar. A cornerstone of Pink Floyds revolutionary and incomparable sound, David Gilmours 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 Stratcomplete with its unmistakable look, sound and feel. Featuring a Black lacquer over Three-color Sunburst alder body with a black pickguard, one-piece maple neck, custom pickups, and David Gilmours now-famous electronics and shortened vintage tremolo arm, the David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster is as beautiful, powerful and idiosyncratic as David Gilmours playing. Additionally, David Gilmours signature guitar comes with a custom case, Evidence Audio high-end guitar cable, David Gilmours three-disc Live in Gdansk CD/DVD package.

Beautiful example of the perfect player. Through my assorted amps I have no problem creating a huge variety of sounds. Am really loving the SD bridge pickup. Far more versatility than my 89 Plus Deluxe, and as far a feel goes, a great example of how a Strat should feel when you put your fingers down across the fret board. Yes, it is expensive but anything that plays as smooth as this does generally is.
