David Gilmour Fender Stratocaster (NOS)

What’s the difference between this and the Relic version? This NOS (New Old Stock) version has not been put through the Fender Custom Shop special ageing techniques. The guitar looks as the original did when it was brand new (but with David’s modifications), hence the name New Old Stock. David Gilmour 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’s famous “Black Strat” guitar. A cornerstone of Pink Floyd’s revolutionary and incomparable 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 David and his longstanding 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 lacquer over Three-color Sunburst alder body with a black pickguard, one-piece maple neck, custom pickups, and David’s now-famous electronics and shortened vintage tremolo arm, the David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster is as beautiful, powerful and idiosyncratic as David’s playing. Additionally, David’s signature guitar comes with a custom case and extra limited edition accessories
