This 12-string guitar was supplied by Taylor Guitars in 2006 via UK professional audio distributor Sound Technology Ltd. for David Gilmour’s 2006 On An Island Tour, in support of his third solo album On An Island. The guitar was used by album co-producer and Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera for performances of Wish You Were Here, the title track of Pink Floyd’s 1975 album of the same name. Co-written by Gilmour and Roger Waters, Gilmour had recorded the original intro on a 12-string guitar. Often considered a tribute to founder member Syd Barrett, Gilmour admitted in the 2012 documentary The Story of Wish You Were Here that he never plays the song without remembering Barrett. Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason joined Gilmour and his band on stage to play Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb at the Royal Albert Hall on 31st May 2006. The guitar was enlisted again by Manzanera for performances of Wish You Were Here during the first three legs of Gilmour’s Rattle That Lock Tour from 12th September 2015 to 24th April 2016 in support of his 2015 solo album Rattle That Lock.
