David Gilmour can be seen playing this 1954 Stratocaster guitar in this video. "I'll use the old Number 1 once in awhile. It's a beautiful, beautiful guitar, but, you know, it's been about, and it feels quite delicate. You wouldn't want to thrash that around, especially not on the road. I actually don't like taking any of the older ones out on the road because there's always the possibility that things like that get stolen. The Strats that I do use, which are sort of early 1980s and '57 vintage Strats made in California, with one or two minor modifications to them, are so good that I'm comfortable with them and they're all I use most of the time, even in the studio." - [guitar.com interview done in 2015.](https://www.guitar.com/articles/david-gilmour-welcome-his-machine)more
