The Pink Floyd guy is selling his guitars

Post by burpgun » Tue Feb 05, 2019 6:34 am

Not sure if this is the right place to put this news, but David Gilmour is selling his black Strat and a whole bunch of other guitars at auction. I can't imagine what would make him do such a thing, but here's a link to the news, in case you're in position to make a bid. https://www.christies.com/features/Davi ... 637-3.aspx

He's actually a pretty good guy from everything that I've ever heard, and I figure that he thinks he can sell his old guitars and do some good for someone with the money.

He says he's quite happy playing his Fender replicas of his famous guitars and sometimes can't tell the difference anyway, so he doesn't need a bunch of museum pieces.
Back in those days, everyone knew that if you were talking about Destiny's Child, you were talking about Beyonce, LaTavia, LeToya, and Larry.

The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

You’re from California, of course you’d have gone with ‘The Pink Floyd Dude is selling his guitars.’

I like that old time rock 'n' roll, don't try to take me to a disco.

You're Shadowplay, this comment should have been prefaced by a mention that you do not like their music. :D
Beware of for sale ads advertising Fender Squires, usually they're neither... and remember.. Say NO to relics!
