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 The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall and his critically-acclaimed 2006 solo effort, On An Island.
