Years, & years, ago... I believe it was 1983, I was lucky enough to spend a few days with David Gilmore at his place in Redding.
One night after a bunch of us returned from the local pub (The Highwayman) Dave opened up his vault, or guitar closet which was housed under the Studio's control room. He was gracious enough to show us all his private collection. I got to hold the first serialized STRAT ever made.
Where's the link for whatever guitar he played with Strawberry Alarm Clock in the scene from Beyond the Valley of the Dolls?
Oh, it was a gold top:
At 1:57 the actress who played Uhuru on Star Trek makes it into the shot during the scene, Nichelle Nichols, at least she looks just like her. Nichols too it has been told, wouldn't pay much for that Strat, but she WOULD bid up if it was one of these fine string instruments.
I am lately feeling as if I am everywhere at once though no place in particular.
