Keep in mind that although I’ve gone over the information in the David Gilmour Gear Guide countless times and cross checked it with every possible source, there might be some errors here and there. Although photographs and film rarely lie they might not represent David’s setup throughout a full period but just a snippet from a given date. Official information from the band members (books, recorded interviews etc), interviews and magazine features are subject to bad memory and interpretation and can’t be considered as any gospel. I’ve tried my best but I’d be very grateful if you’d contact me if you have any new information or updates of any sort. Thanks!
