2008 Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Relic Stratocaster


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 fifty 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 “Dark Side of the Moon”, “Wish You Were Here”, “The Wall” and his critically-acclaimed 2006 solo effort, “On an Island”.

Featuring a Black over Three-color Sunburst Alder body with black pickguard, one-piece straight-grain 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.
