5. David Gilmour Owns the First Real Stratocaster
It’s true. While there were technically Stratocaster prototypes that were created before Fender’s Strat 0001, Gilmour owns the guitar that boasts that serial number. As a lover of both guitar and rock history – in other words, because we’re geeks – we think this is so cool. At one point the guitar was owned by Seymour Duncan. We are happy that it is currently in the hands of such a renowned and passionate guitarist. David Gilmour’s home just seems like the right place for this unique instrument.
