Lot Essay

At the request of guitar technician Phil Taylor, Gibson Custom Shop supplied this guitar to David Gilmour in January 2013. The neck follows the slimmer taper and profile of a circa 1960s Gibson and the P-90 pickups are underwound to Gilmour’s specification. Gilmour used this guitar during solo recording sessions at his East Sussex studio in 2013, which developed into his first solo project in almost a decade, the 2015 album Rattle That Lock. Longtime Pink Floyd collaborator Jon Carin subsequently played the guitar during the first three legs of Gilmour’s Rattle That Lock Tour from September 2015 to April 2016.
