    I saw them last Friday and I agree with you, didn't make me want any of them in particular, with the possible exception of the 1950 Broadcaster ($50k - $70k, yeah right...) or the 1933 Dobro.

    We are lucky to be able to play, never mind own a couple of guit-fiddles...

    Loved reading the stories. They had a “guided tour” on Christie’s YouTube channel as well and the “guitar expert” made enough errors that it would have been more accurately described as a “misguided tour.” Either way, this is certainly a once-in -a-lifetime opportunity.

    He knows tone is in the underpants, and he is not selling those.
    In the interview he clearly stated that he can just grab is signature model off the wall and he cant tell the difference between that one and the original.
    But you sure could tell the difference between me and him playing the black strat.
    He did mention something about "the workmate" a 1955 Esquire, he says he just cant sell it.

    who's david gilmour? is he a Luthier? he seems to make a lot of guitars.Why is he having a sale? Will they throw in free strings and picks if I buy one? I wisht someone would have mentioned this sale sooner, so I could have started saving and going through the couch cushions sooner.

    Is he related to that Dougg Gilmour that used to play for the Pink Flood or whatever that band was, that did the album about stuff like Gus & Jim and after all there only ordinary men?

    He makes some purdy guitars..

    I have it on good source, that he has decided to become a keyboard player and is giving up on guitars, no future in it. probably gonna start playing EDM, or thats the rumour. Working on a collab with the Pet Shop BOysz and the ORB...

    The drag about actually winning one of those guitars ?

    Finding out it was used on one of the 80’s/90’s “Pink Floyd” :rolleyes: tours and all it’ll play is one of those numerous songs that sound like Comfortably Numb...:confused:

    I looked at the link, its not in 3d, its just regular 2d, I think this is misleading, especially after I had to dig out my red/green glasses. Now I don't trust the internets anymore cause of stuff like this.

    I saw that too, and heck, I'm a better guitar expert than the doofus that was giving this 'misguided tour'.
    My wife was watching that with me at the time, and she even noticed the guy didn't seem much of an 'expert'!
    I wonder how much that guy charges for his 'expertise'?
    I'm willing to bet the average forum member here is more of an expert than that guy is! Sheesh!

    OP - thanks for posting! Had not seen this 3D tour. Very cool!

    Which makes me wonder - is that the level of expertise of Christie's fine art specialists as well??? If so, either the bar is set really low or us TDPRI-ers are a knowledgeable bunch when it comes to our chosen field!
