A bit of history:

 

As for the history of this guitar, the mystery thickens and perhaps makes this jewel even brighter.

There are several theories about its origins, the most reliable would seem to be the one according to which the first owner of the guitar was Leo Fender, who then sold it to Seymour Duncan, who then in turn sold it to Phil Taylor for about 900 dollars.
In 1970 David bought the guitar from Phil Taylor.

Gilmour himself in an interview given to Guitarist Magazine in 1986 explained how at that time Phil was buying a house and needed a "loan" ... so David did not miss the opportunity and offered to buy # 0001.
It is not clear how much he paid for the guitar ... but still Phil bought the house!

There are not many pictures or footage of David with the # 0001 at work: one of the first appearances seems to be that of 1978 in which David uses the guitar for recordings and David's first solo album.
Later it was used for other recordings including, in 1979, for the album "Back to the Egg" by Paul McCartney and for the song "So Glad to See You Here"
The # 0001 can also be seen in the movie about the jam session held at Abbey Road Studios with Jeff "Skunk" Baxter in 1991.

Finally, in 2004, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Stratocaster, a mega convert was held at the Wembley Arena, in which Gilmour re-proposed the legendary # 0001.
Recently auctioned for charity with a price of 150 thousand dollars.
