David Gilmour and the Fender Custom Shop are extremely proud to release one of the most highly anticipated guitars ever - the fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Stratocaster NOS in Black. Gilmour’s famous “Black Strat®” guitar was a cornerstone of the Pink Floyd sound; 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 closely with Gilmour and his longtime 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 nitrocellulose lacquer finish, alder body with black pickguard, one-piece maple neck, custom pickups, and Gilmour’s own distinctive electronics and shortened vintage tremolo arm, the David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster is as beautiful, powerful, and individual as Gilmour’s playing. Additionally, the guitar comes with a custom case, Evidence Audio™ high-end guitar cable, Gilmour’s three-disc Live in Gdansk CD/DVD package, and a copy of Taylor’s book, The Black Strat.
The Music Gallery has been a Fender Custom Shop dealer since its formation in 1987. We keep a bevy of about 50 Fender Custom Shop instruments in inventory at all times. Whether you're looking for Stratocaster's, Telecasters, Precision Basses, or Jazz Basses we are able to help you design or find whatever the special instrument you're looking for maybe!
