David Gilmour has been voted "Fender's Greatest Player" in a poll published in this month's 'Guitarist' magazine in the UK.

The readers poll is part of a huge celebration in the issue, of the guitar manufacturer's 60th birthday, taking a look at the ingredients that turned a pioneering US guitar maker into rock'n'roll's greatest brand.

issue 273
David appears ahead of such celebrated musicians as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Keith Richards, and Eric Clapton.

The magazine comments: "Gilmour has achieved what once seemed impossible: he's usurped Jimi Hendrix as your favourite Fender player ever. His forthcoming solo album 'On An Island' will offer a rare taste of new material, while his gliding, shining playing with Pink Floyd not only stands the test of time, it seems to become ever more popular.."

The February issue - number 273 - of Guitarist went on sale in the UK on Wednesday 25th January, priced £5.25, and is available in selected outlets worldwide as an import.
