Overview

Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature Stratocaster, "New Old Stock", Black Finish, Black Scratchplate Maple Fretboard

David Gilmour's tone is the stuff of legend, there's no doubt about it. Responsible for creating some of the most iconic guitar-work of the last 40+ years, Gilmour's sound is as recognisable as any of the big names out there - if not, more so - so you know that any signature series guitar with his name on it is going to sound sublime.

Custom Pickup Set, For that Classic Gilmour Tone

This Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature NOS Stratocaster has been developed in close collaboration with both Gilmour and his longtime guitar technician, Phil Taylor. This reproduction of Gilmour's famous "Black Strat" (arguably the cornerstone of Pink Floyd's sound) features the same unmistakable look, sound and feel as the titular "Black Strat", and is available to buy now here at PMT Online.

Featuring the same famous black nitrocellulose finish of the original instrument, a select alder body, black pickguard, one-piece maple neck, a custom set of pickups (see Technical Specs below for more details), Gilmour's very own distinctive electronics, and a shortened vintage tremolo arm, this beautifully crafted guitar is as powerful and individual as Gilmour's own distinctive playstyle. Not only that, but the NOS (New Old Stock) prefix refers to an instrument that is a vintage reproduction in every way, but without any of the ageing, making it essentially a New Vintage guitar.

As if that alone wasn't enough, the guitar also comes with an array of extras, including a custom hard case, Evidence Audio high-end guitar cable, and Gilmour's three-disc Live in Gdansk CD/DVD package.
