David Gilmour’s 1953 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop (Bigsby)
David purchased this guitar in 2006 to be used as a spare on the “On an Island” tour. Later on, he used the guitar during a recording session for Bryan Ferry’s 2010 solo album Olympia, as can be seen in the “The Making of Olympia” documentary (photo below).
This guitar was auctioned off in 2019 through Christie’s and it ended up selling for $250,000.
