Lot Essay

Purchased in late 1979 by David Gilmour’s longtime guitar technician Phil Taylor from Frank Lucido’s California Guitar, Ventura, California, during the final recording and mixing sessions for Pink Floyd’s 1979 album The Wall in Los Angeles, the guitar was subsequently sold to David Gilmour in 1983 and kept for studio use.
