If you’re tired of waiting for the Signature Strat, and perhaps have more money than sense, then one of David’s old guitars is going up for auction at the end of the month, in New York.
The guitar in question is a Fender Stratocaster: a vintage ’57 re-issue, serial number V010612.
In a cream finish with three-ply pickguard, it even comes with strings and a plectrum.
David’s modifications, typically, include a shortened tremolo arm, EMG SA pickups and SPC/EXG tone-boost circuits.
This guitar, by the way, was taken on the road for the last two Pink Floyd tours.
The auction takes place at the Hard Rock Cafe on Broadway on 31 May.
Estimate? $4,000 to $6,000.

Go on, do tell: which three items of the music memorabilia listed would you most like to find beneath your (presumably very large) Christmas tree? We’re all wondering.
Just three. Don’t be greedy.
