David Gilmour’s guitar collections are very impressive. A selection of his guitars is were displayed at Christie’s in Los Angeles for auction in June 2019.

Some of the guitars have reached near-mythical proportions in Gilmour’s legacy, including an all-black 1969 Fender Stratocaster that he used on most Pink Floyd recordings between 1973 and the mid-80s. Also, a sweet red apple Strat that was his first guitar from 1988-2005 and a 1954 white model with gold parts and serial number 0001 given to him by Leo Fender.

Also on display are two other Stratocasters, a 1954 model and a 1957 blue model believed to have been tailor-made for Homer Haynes from the country duo Homer and Jethro.

Gilmour also shows the 1955 gold Gibson Les Paul on which he played the solo from “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2”. There are two acoustics, a 1971 12-string Martin D12-28 used on “Wish You Were Here” and a 1969 Martin D-35, that complete the collection.

Christie’s estimates that all the guitars sell for between $ 5,000 and $ 150,000. Gilmour will donate all proceeds raised from the auction to charity.
