David Gilmour's Strat Relic

 

David Gilmour and the Custom Shop are extremely proud to release one of the most iconic and highly-anticipated musical instruments of the past 50 years, the Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster, based on David Gilmour’s famous “Black Strat” guitar, which is almost as legendary as the David Gilmour himself.

 

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.

 

 

The guitar has been heavily modified and experimented on over the decades—often by Gilmour himself—the guitar became a cornerstone of Pink Floyd’s surreally psychedelic sound as soon as Gilmour got it, and it was featured prominently on seminal chart-topping albums such as The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977) and The Wall (1979), in addition to Gilmour’s acclaimed solo albums David Gilmour (1978), About Face (1983) and On An Island(2006). In the mid 80′ David replaced all his strats with 1957 reissue models.The Black Strat was donated to Hard Rock Café were it was on display until 1997. In 2005 Pink Floyd reunited for a last time at the Live 8 show in London’s Hyde Park and the Black Strat made its triumphant return. It’s been David’s main guitar ever since.

 

 

The Custom Shop worked hand-in-hand with David Gilmour and his longtime guitar technician, Phil, to create his signature model, a reproduction of the Black Strat—complete with its unmistakable look, sound and feel. Featuring a Black lacquer over Three-color Sunburst alder body with a black pickguard, one-piece maple neck, custom pickups, and David Gilmour’s now-famous electronics and shortened vintage tremolo arm, the David Gilmour Signature Series Stratocaster is asbeautiful, powerful and idiosyncratic as David Gilmour’s playing.

Like the original David Gilmour Black Strat made by Custom Shop, Our replicated guitar also has been given "Relic" treatment—built to show years of natural wear and tear: with nicks, scratches, worn finish, rusty hardware and aged plastic parts. The end result is to give it the look of a true 30-year-old Strat with million miles of touring and playing, just as David’s own guitar looks like now. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

  

Like the original fender relic, our replicated David Gilmour Black Strat also features a black nitrocellulose lacquer, black over 3-Color Sunburst finish, alder body with black pickguard, which is almost as beautiful, powerful and individual as Gilmour’s.

Just like the original David Gilmour Black Strat made by Custom Shop, our replica also features a 25.5 inch scale length maple neck, black dot inlays and maple fretboard. Maple gives the guitar a slightly clear and bright tone. Besides, its neck's profile is "C" Shape which is considered by many to be the faster and easiest neck profile.

 

 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

 

 

 

 

All our replicated David Gilmour Black Strat is painted with nitrocellulose lacquer like the originals. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish, which is thinner than modern polyurethane finishes, will allow this alder body to sing loud and clear.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  

Our replicated David Gilmour Black Strat is simply phenomenal! With a great sound! Very well built and sounds like a rock guitar should. It cuts through very well and plays very fast. Very NICE!

But you can send us your present pictures, and also can send us your idea, we can specially make it for you according to your requirements. As we are a custom shop, our aim is to give you everything you need to make a personalizing custom guitar



About Nitrocellulose lacquer

 

When talking about lacquer used in the guitars making, there are mainly two kinds, including polyurethane lacquer and nitrocellulose lacquer. But the most special is nitrocellulose lacquer. Nitrocellulose lacquer has more advantages than Polyurethane lacquer, like quick-drying, tough film, abrasion, high chemicas and water resistance. Regardless of past, present or future, only high-quality, expensive guitars use this kind of lacquer.

 





 

Therefore, we pay great attention to painting when making our David Gilmour Strat. Just as the original guitar, the Nitrocellulose lacquer finish is applied, sanded, and buffed by hand; namely, more care is put into the finishing process. This extra care is intended to make the guitars look like gently aged and well-cared-for vintage guitars. Nitrocellulose lacquer helps the guitars 'breathe' better and won't affect the guitar's shock, therefore to resonate and sustain more freely, making them much better instruments.

 

But, as we all know, when using, Nitrocellulose lacquer needs painting and sanding repeatedly, for more than dozens of times. This process often do great harm to painters. But polyurethane lacquer just needs painting and sanding for just few times. Therefore, guitars painted with Nitrocellulose lacquer will be higher than other guitars, pls understand!!!

 

 

About Pickups 

 

 

It is worth mentioning that the pickups we select are Wilkinson pickups. We have to admit that Wilkinson pickups are not as good as the original pickups. But they are more attractive in quality and price, saving much money for our customers. Most of our customers reflected the pickups are beyond their imagination, stable and reliable enough!

 

 

Of course! If you insist on the original pickups, and we can find them on the market, and can afford it. We are pleasant to install the original pickups for your guitars. But the price will be much higher than guitars with Willinson pickups. Be prepared!!!

 

 

 

The Black Strat Book

 

《Pink Floyd, The Black Strat, A History of David Gilmour’s Black Stratocaster》

 

 

 

 

 

The David Gilmour’s Black Strat is so special and famous that there is a book about it-《Pink Floyd, The Black Strat, A History of David Gilmour’s Black Stratocaster. The book was written by Phil - David’s personal guitar technician and the band’s chief backline tech since 1974 - the only person to know Pink Floyd’s equipment better than the band themselves.

 

The chronological story begins with David Gilmour joining Pink Floyd in early 1968, his guitar at that time, his subsequent instruments leading to the purchase of the Black Strat in 1970, and the other guitars that have come and gone. It details all of the changes and modifications made to the Black Strat, it’s use on Pink Floyd tours and iconic albums, David’s solo projects, and various guest appearances throughout the years.
