Lot Essay

Similar to Eric Clapton’s custom built 1996 50th Anniversary Issue gold leaf Stratocaster, this guitar was custom-made for David Gilmour with a gold leaf finish by Master Builder Chris Fleming at Fender Custom Shop in 2005. As the nitrocellulose finish on the neck had remained slightly tacky, the neck was refinished and remodeled by Paul Herman of Wal basses, Surrey, in May 2010, along with various other alterations to accommodate Gilmour’s preferences, after which the guitar was kept for studio use.
