This is still not carved in stone, however.
Although we had all hoped that its availability would coincide with the European and North American release of the ‘Remember That Night’ DVD last month, this has not been possible due to reasons of quality and suitability: basically, and quite rightly, David wouldn’t give Fender his approval until he was completely happy with their prototype, so it took several attempts to get it just so.
However, there is some good news to come from the delay (as if the guitar being as close to the original as possible isn’t good enough).
David’s long-time guitar technician, Phil Taylor, has written a history of David’s famed black Strat, and a copy of this book will be included with each guitar purchased.
I’ve seen some sample pages and can confidently say that it should be of interest to guitarists and non-guitarists alike, owing to the magazine-style mix of photos and facts.
And I’m really pleased that Phil has agreed to take part in an exclusive Q&A session for us.
If you haven’t noticed it before, Phil has a section on the FAQ page, called Ask Phil. Maybe your question has already been answered there, so please check before writing.
All suitable questions will be published below, so please read what’s already been asked before submitting your own.
As always, so that everyone gets an equal chance of having a question answered, Ionly want a maximum of three questions per person, please. Lists will be deleted immediately.
You have until 6PM (UK) on Wednesday 10 October to get your questions to us, so please don’t rush. Far better to put time and thought into your question so that it stands out than to send in something unimaginative.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
