This Guitar Is Available As A Fabulous Fake

In November 2006, the Fender Custom Shop announced two reproductions of Gilmour's "Black" Strat for release on 22 September 2008. Gilmour's website states the release date was chosen to coincide with the release of his Live in Gdansk album. Both guitars are based on extensive measurements of the original instrument, each featuring varying degrees of wear. The most expensive will be the David Gilmour Relic Stratocaster which features the closest copy of wear on the original guitar. A pristine copy of the guitar will also be made, called the David Gilmour NOS Stratocaster.

Both guitars feature:

Vintage Style Frets
Black Dot Position Inlays (Narrow Spacing)
American Vintage Synchronized Tremolo with Custom Beveled Tremolo Block
White Tremolo Back Cover
Shortened Tremolo Arm
Fender/Gotoh Vintage Style Tuning Machines
Nickel/Chrome Hardware
1 Ply Beveled Black Acrylic Pickguard (11 Hole)
Aged White Plastic Parts & Knobs
One Master Volume Knob
Two Tone Knobs (one for neck and the other for the bridge pickup instead of standard neck and middle controls.)
custom "neck on" switch to allow for turning on the neck and bridge pickups in combination
Five Position Pickup Selector Switch
Fender Custom Shop Fat '50 Neck Pickup & '69 Middle Pickup
Seymour Duncan SSL-5 (or SSL-1 for more Vintage Style) Pickup
