Last September, I posted about Phil Taylor’s book Pink Floyd: The Black Strat: A History of David Gilmour’s Black Fender Stratocaster about David Gilmour’s famous black Fender Stratocaster. Since that post, I have picked up a copy of the book, and it’s a very interesting look at Gilmour’s Strat through the years.
The guitar has gone through several neck and pickup changes throughout the years, and the changes are chronicled along with a nice collection of photographs of Gilmour and Pink Floyd during their heyday as well as today. The photographs alone make this book well worth the money, but the descriptions are also fantastic. If you’re a fan of David Gilmour or of Fender Stratocasters, you’ll enjoy this book.
