Lot Essay

This guitar was supplied directly by Gibson USA for Pink Floyd’s 1994 The Division Bell Tour, which ran from 30th March to 29th October 1994 and would turn out to be the last Pink Floyd tour. Kept as a spare for David Gilmour on the tour, the Chet Atkins CEC was used primarily by second guitarist Tim Renwick. The guitar was again enlisted as a spare for Gilmour on his 2015-2016 Rattle That Lock Tour, in support of his fourth solo album Rattle That Lock.
