Lot Essay

When an unsolicited surprise arrived from Fender Custom Shop in 1987, David Gilmour was rather taken aback to open the case and find this pink guitar inside. It transpired that the guitar had been produced as a sample by Fender Master Builder Jay Black and had become known as “the guitar with no home” due to the unpopular color of the finish. Making the obvious connection between the color pink and Pink Floyd, fellow Master Builder and Co-Founder of the Fender Custom Shop John Page came up with the idea to gift the guitar to David Gilmour.
