All of the proceeds are going to charity, so yes it was a very good sale.
The money's going to his foundation, to be disbursed to various charities.
Not to say he couldn't go and pick out a new Rolls anyway...
I'm sure Dumbles have been on a lot of famous recordings, but the impact of those is probably not in the ballpark of almost the entire Pink Floyd catalog (minus the last two albums, which were done on a different strat). But I think you're right about the association - most people see the guitars in peoples' hands, and not the amps behind them.
I keep meaning to dip my toe back in Floyd’s music and maybe find something I like that I haven’t heard 8 million times but so far - not yet.
There’s a great doc on Gilmour from about 10 years or so ago. Seems like a very chill dude.
Gave away a huge English country estate for charity and basically said “I’m so rich ,it’s the least I could do.
21 million for charity, parts with a bunch of guitars that he loves, and Jeff Bezos can’t sign the pledge! What a crock!
He talks about the guitars sold here
Who cares ?
The man made the music , the guitar didnt.
I cant believe anyone would pay that for what is just....a...guitar....
And I have no idea wtf yall are talking about.
someone overpaid for a guitar? shocker.
As with every sale of a collectible item, it is the story and not so much the item that makes it valuable. Have an old Colt 1860 pistol, big deal. Have an old Colt 1860 pistol that belonged to Buffalo Bill, a very big deal. Same item, different stories.
Dang, that buyer could have bought about 146,000 Squiers, or 18,700 MIMs or 6000 MIAs
(I made up all those numbers, so don't bother doing the math)
The point is, IT SOLD FOR MARKET VALUE.
Plus, the proceeds are going to charity. I can't figure out a way to have a problem with that.
To quote Cosmo Kramer, “You don’t sell the steak, you sell the sizzle!”
I didn't think Seagal was making that much these days.
Anyone know who bought it?
That's gonna drive the value right up there...
Some day the Red Special will probably be auctioned for charity too. I bet it sets a new record.
Any mention of the buyers?
the red special is nothing compared to daves strat.dark side is an incredible musical touchstone that overshadows queens entire catalogue.sorry ,it's a fact.personally i think the fetishism is stupid but it's for a good cause so.....
Can't wait to see what Page's #1 LP eventually goes for.
Unbelievable. Mr. Gilmour probably still has the original neck that was actually used on many of the Albums? The neck on there now is what an 83?
There’s this Canadian guy named Neil Young that has played the same 1959 Fender Deluxe for decades.
It’s been on countless recordings and several tours around the world.
