Watch the David Gilmour online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone
Gilmour is a Strat guy. He has gone through a number of subtle changes like the use of a Kahler trem and EMG pickups but it was still a Stratocaster. His most famous guitar is the black Strat which he has been using on and off since he purchased it at Manny's music in 1970. The guitar was loaned to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in London for a while before David asked for it back. Apparently it was not returned to him in the condition it was given in and he was not happy. Now it's back to being his main guitar. It has been through many revisions, like different necks and bridges. For all you Gilmour freaks out there, there is a book about the guitar called fittingly enough The Black Strat. Good fun!
