the black strat coverA superb new book, written by Phil Taylor, David Gilmour's long-term guitar technician, studio manager, production director and much more, takes a careful and detailed look at one of rock's most iconic instruments.

"The Black Strat: A History Of David Gilmour's Black Fender Stratocaster" is a thoroughly rewarding book for ALL Pink Floyd fans - not just the musicians amongst you! And thanks to Phil, we have a signed copy of the limited edition book to give away to one lucky Brain Damage visitor!

From the absorbing text, guiding you through David's principle guitars over the years (with a particular focus on THAT guitar, of course), to the fantastic pictures, many of which have never been seen before, it is a book worthy of your Floydian bookshelf. Check out our review for more details.

It can currently only be ordered directly from the special website - - which is now taking orders, so hurry to secure yours. Selected Borders bookstores in the UK also have stocks of the title.

However, if you fancy your chances of winning a copy of the book SIGNED by the man himself, you'd better enter our latest great contest!

To win the book, you need to answer the following three questions correctly:

  1. When did Phil Taylor first start working for Pink Floyd?
  2. How many photos/illustrations are there in the book?
  3. When was the guitar itself purchased?

If you need any help with these questions, go to where you'll find all the info!
