I have read about this before. I am pretty sure it's Gilmour. Man I'd like to know its value these days...

Story is extremely interesting, but let's wait for the exact answer wink.gif

In the meantime answer is came, well done Brandon, but .......(it continue)

David Gilmour with an footnote. There is alot of speculation on his #0001 stratocaster. the website http://www.gilmourish.com has tons of information about it, including some notes about how it may or may not be the 1st ever made. The hardware is gold and the color is unusual for the time, so those are signs that it was made for a special occasion, or as a custom job. But custom for who? This is where it might actually be #1. It could be custom for Leo Fender, made that way as a test or prototype for himself, or it could be for..well anything. There is also a piece on that page of how one of Gilmour's guitar techs bough the guitar from Seymour Duncan for the small price of $900 in the mid 70's. Leo Fender originally gave (or sold) the guitar to Seymour Duncan. Read that part carefully, it discusses weird topics that say Gilmour's guitar is a "Frankenstein" instead of the real #0001, since it has custom wound pickups from Seymour Duncan, and a '57 neck with cigarette burns on it..which Gilmour's guitar does indeed have. I'm sure the only people that really know are/were Leo Fender and his wife, David Gilmour himself, who is a quiet person and may not tell just to keep the mystery up, and the guitar techs that handled it. And its value? Guitar Tech and then owner Phil Taylor sold the guitar to Gilmour for the money to buy a house in 1977. Now that its 50+ years old and Leo Fender has passed, it might be in the "priceless" category. Interestingly enough, David still plays the #0001, and played it of course at the 50 year anniversary of the strat, and he has been known to use it during practice and recording sessions. There is also a nice page on that website about his black strat, which is almost as famous, if not more, than #0001.
