Fender Doing David Gilmour's '70 Black Strat

Fender David Gilmour Black Strat

July 26, 2008
Kudos to David Gilmour for thinkin' about the workin' man! Davidgilmour.com reports that this will not be a "Blackie" priced limited edition, and it will be available in 2 models-- a relic and a lower price non-aged "NOS" model. This Stratocaster is scheduled to be available on Sept. 22, 2008; coinciding with the release of a new LIVE IN GDANSK album.

Obviously, this is pre-EMG Gilmour sound, with custom wound pickups and a special Duncan in the bridge. So, I guess you could say that the tone will be more on the "dark side" (nyuck! nyuck!).

Go to the above Gilmour link for more details (fender.com has nada yet)!

A very cool blog called Retro to Go got an early jump on this one.
