Anybody else watching the Christie’s Auction of David Gilmour’s guitars? The Les Paul Gold Top used on the solo for “Another Brick in the wall” has just gone for $360,000. His Martin D35 made $900,000 – surely a record for an acoustic, and the Serial 0001 Strat went for $1.5m.
Black strat will go highest, I’m sure, so I think the record $2m for Jimi’s strat will be broken. Maybe even the heavily signed charity strat that went for $2.7m….
Needless to say, it looks like my chances of getting “a cheap one” are greatly diminishing.
