Happy Birthday David Gilmour! A Look At His Best Friend Otherwise Known As His Black Stratocaster


The Black Stratocaster

David Gilmour’s black Stratocaster is almost as legendary as the man himself. The guitar has been featured on some of the world’s biggest selling albums of all time and classic Pink Floyd songs like Money, Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Comfortably Numb. Now, some 40 years later, Fender has released a signature model and a whole generation guitar players are modifying their guitars for a similar look and sound.
David bought the Black Strat at Manny’s guitar store in New York, USA in May 1970 during Pink Floyd’s North American tour. As fate would have it, David had just weeks earlier bough his first black Stratocaster at the same store but it was stolen along with the rest of Floyd’s rig. Being forced to cancel the rest of the tour David once again visited Manny’s on their way back home and the rest is pretty much history. The Black Strat made its debut performance at the Bath festival in June 1970.
