Gives me an excuse to post a pic of the Strat DG played back in '99 when he was MCCartney's partner in music at Sir Paul's triumphant return to the Cavern - first time he'd played there for 35 years!

Though I'm very much a Telecaster player these days, that's one guitar I wouldn't mind getting my hands on. If only it had a maple fretboard......sigh..........

Seriously though, whenever I see a white Strat these days, I think "Gilmour" and not "Hendrix".....possibly because DG played it the right way up?

:D :D :D

Gilmour is cool

It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

I don't own a strat. If I do buy one, it would be this one. Most likely will not be able to afford the relic but the NOS would be a nice addition to the family.

Now, if they would only duplicate his fingers and sell them online....

probably comparably to other custom shop offerings of this ilk.
my sources hint at around $4,000.00. the models may differ around $500.00 or so.
