Mike McCready’s Fender David Gilmour Stratocaster

Mike got this guitar sometime in 2010s, possibly even earlier since the guitar became available in 2008. It’s a David Gilmour Signature Stratocaster, built as a copy of David’s original guitar that he used as his main guitar in Pink Floyd (you can read more about that particular guitar here – David Gilmour’s 1969 Fender Stratocaster “The Black Strat”.

Mike noted in a number of interviews that he really liked David Gilmour when he was younger, so it would make sense that he would purchase this guitar. It also makes sense that he would use it on Pearl Jam’s cover of “Comfortably Numb” which the band occasionally performs live.
