David Gilmour acquired this Höfner bass from The Bass Place, Birmingham, England, in January 1990 and kept it for studio use. Bassist Guy Pratt can be seen using the guitar in footage released from the Barn Jams recording sessions at Gilmour’s West Sussex home in January 2007. Having enjoyed working with friends and fellow musicians Richard Wright, Guy Pratt and Steve DiStanislao so much during his 2006 On An Island Tour, Gilmour invited the group for a week of jamming together in one of the barns at his countryside home. Beautifully lit with strings of fairy lights and filled with plenty of heaters to combat the freezing weather, the barn was set up with recording and filming equipment to capture the sessions live. A few of the jams were included on the live concert DVD Live in Gdansk, released in September 2008.
