Sold For $3,975,000 💰💰💸💲🎸😱😱
DAVID GILMOUR the King of Progressive and Psychedelic rock guitarists ever deserves, to breaks the record of his iconic Black Stratocaster, "the most expensive guitar on the planet". To say the least, today's highly anticipated auction of David Gilmour's personal guitar collection rocked the guitar world from the get-go — and it just kept on going. The biggest news of the morning was the $1,095,000 sale of Gilmour's 1969 Martin D-35, the same guitar heard on Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. But the undisputed star of the auction was Gilmour's legendary 1969 Black Strat, which took in a mamouth $3,975,000 by the end of the day, establishing a new world auction record for any guitar sold at auction — ever. The axe heard on Pink Floyd's “Comfortably Numb,” “Shine on You Crazy Diamond,” “Money” and so many others.
Gilmour's Olympic White " #0001 " Stratocaster took in $1,815,000 after a four-minute bidding war. Gilmour used the guitar on Pink Floyd’s The Wall. His 1955 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop sold for $447,000.
Gilmour's Candy Apple Red 1984 Fender Strat realized an impressive $615,000, much higher than its $25,000 estimate. It can be heard throughout much of A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell. A black 1984 Strat that was once played by George Harrison sold for $212,500. Meanwhile, the guitarist's incredibly rare 1958 Gretsch White Penguin was let go for $447,000 — and an attractive 1981 Charvel sold for $75000. His 1985 Gibson J-200 Celebrity (originally owned by Dire Straits' John Illsley) took in $243,750 while a 1974 Jedson lap-steel sold for $300,000. This is according to
