Lot Essay

This guitar was supplied directly by Washburn in 1984 for use on the North American leg of David Gilmour’s About Face Tour from 9th May to 16th July 1984, in support of his second solo album About Face. The Mirage Deluxe was used on stage by Mick Ralphs of Mott the Hoople and Bad Company, who had joined Gilmour’s touring band as second guitarist.
