David Gilmour Gear and Guitar


David Gilmour from Pink Floyd talks about his guitar sound and gear. His classic Fender Stratocaster sound, warm, hollow, clean sound set the atmosphere with Pink Floyd records.
David Gilmours signature Fender Black Stratocaster with maple neck and with pickup covers has become an icon, and has recently been copied and released by Fender custom shop. David Gilmour like many others dreamed of playing a Stratocaster because of the man that made it sound so good, Hank Marvin.

David Gilmour talks about his distortion sound, what he wants from it and how he uses it live. This interview is from a series of BBC documentaries about the guitar, theres a few more clips of some guitar legends talking about why they love guitars including Hank Marvin and Mark Knoplfer. I'll try to post more up.
