    Apologies if this has been posted or discussed already, but I learned from Instagram today David's answer to the old question "if you could keep only one..."

    Unless it’s a Custom Shop replica.

    Looks like Richard Thompson did too. That would have been a show to see!

    Apparently that was Thompson's 70th birthday party, yesterday. Clips on YouTube I'll have to check out when I get off work.

    It was stated before the auction that David was keeping the Work Mate. The Strat he used last night was one of his Custom Shop guitars.

    I was about to say the same... He couldn't let go of the Tele. Who can blame him?

    Most of what I know about it is from about halfway down this page — but the short answer is that it's a 1955 Esquire with a Strat neck pickup added, and it appeared on some tracks on The Wall and was on the cover of About Face.

    That Tele/Esquire is also on a few songs on Rattle That Lock.

    I remember seeing Gilmour play it on Paul McCartney's Run Devil Run concert video in the late 90's. Always thought it looked so cool.
