The 0001 Strat is a Fender Stratocaster electric guitar, with a white body, maple neck, three-way pick up selector and an unusual gold colour scratch plate and hardware, owned by David Gilmour.[1] He bought it from guitar technician Phil Taylor, who purchased it from Seymour Duncan.[2] This guitar is one of the most notable in his collection as it has the 0001 serial number. Gilmour used the Guitar in the 2004 50th anniversary of the Stratocaster at Wembley Arena along with his Red Strat. It is not the first Fender Stratocaster ever made as prototypes had already been constructed before this one. The origin of the guitar is unknown, and isn't clear whether it is the real 0001 Strat because the neck (which has the 0001 serial number on it) could have been taken off the original.[1] The 0001 Strat, along with the Red Strat, was used in the 2004 Strat Pack show that commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster.
