The David Gilmour Guitar Collection, Christie's New York - catalogue

As we mentioned previously, 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.

In advance of the New York 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. Estimates range from $300 to $150,000 (although we suspect many of the instruments will sell for significantly more) with proceeds to benefit charitable causes.

We will bring you confirmed details of arrangements to view the collection in these three locations once we have them.

In the meantime, as from today you can pre-order the catalogue for The David Gilmour Guitar Collection, direct from Christies. These are priced at £30/$50/€45 each plus postage. 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.
