David Gilmour guitars: Christies, London - book viewing slot now Print E-mail
Written by Matt

As you know, Christie's New York is handling the upcoming sale of a significant chunk of the personal guitar collection of David Gilmour. With more than 120 guitars, including his preferred Fender models of Broadcasters, Esquires, Telecasters and Stratocasters, the auction on 20th June marks a rare opportunity for guitar aficionados, musicians and collectors to explore one of the world's most comprehensive groupings of guitars that hooked a generation.

As we noted, prior to the sale, the entire David Gilmour Collection will be on display at Christie's London between 27th - 31st March, followed by highlights of the collection on display in Los Angeles from 7th - 11th May, and will conclude with a full preview in New York from 14th - 19th June.

You can book your viewing slot for the London staging now - visit this page at Christie's website to select your preferred time. Reservations are free of charge, but necessarily limited to reduce congestion, so don't delay. At time of writing this, most time slots are still available, although some of the later slots each day are gone. For those unable to attend, the auction house had created an incredible virtual tour of the upcoming George Michael collection - hopefully they will create the same for David's guitars...

We have no idea if photography will be permitted at the viewing (a question we've had a number of times already) although if you pre-order the catalogue for The David Gilmour Guitar Collection, direct from Christies, you should have great pictures of every item on offer. The catalogues are priced at £30/$50/€45 each plus postage, and please note that catalogues will not be despatched until the week commencing 13th May, so it is unlikely to be available to purchase at the London or LA preview events.
