2008 Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature Relic Stratocaster


Available for purchase is the highly coveted 2008 Fender Custom Shop David Gilmour Signature Relic Stratocaster, complete with its original hard-shell case, certificate of authenticity, book, and accessories featured in the photos. This exceptional guitar not only captures the iconic sound of the rock legend but also replicates the visual character of David Gilmour’s original “Black Strat” with meticulous attention to detail, including the distinctive shortened tremolo arm.

Despite having been played, this guitar is in excellent condition and operates flawlessly, with abundant factory relic wear adding to its authentic aesthetic. The overall condition rates a solid 9.5 out of 10. Every element of the guitar is original, and the short tremolo arm is included. The instrument is free from cracks, repairs, or operational concerns. The neck maintains a straight profile, and the original frets are in superb condition, ensuring a smooth playing experience without buzzing or dead spots.

Recent setup work further optimizes the guitar’s playability. The original hard-shell case, while showing some wear, remains fully functional and provides secure protection for this iconic instrument. Detailed photos of the wear provide transparency, allowing potential buyers to inspect the actual guitar for sale, not generic stock photos. Thank you for considering this extraordinary piece that not only pays homage to David Gilmour’s legendary sound but also stands as a relic of musical history in its own right.
