    Hi Folks,

    Which is best suited for Gilmour tone, like, in the following songs:

    1. And Then (Album-Rattle that lock)
    2. Coming back to life (Album- The Division Bell)
    3. Shine on you crazy diamond (Album- Wish you were here)

    Choices available to me are:
    • Fender MIM

    Please do not look at the Price tag of the guitar, just think of the tone. I have a choice, but I don't want to mention it just yet :)

    Any of them. Brick was a LP with P90s....

    Sounding like Gilmour means playing like Gilmour. Note choices, dynamics...his approach. This includes what he's plugging into. I've heard him make his Martin sound just like a Strat. :D

    Correct answer: None of the above

    Every one of those guitars (in stock form) will be unbearably noisy when running all the effects needed to get even remotely close to Gilmours tones.

    No it sounds like me doing Gilmour. :D

    FWIW, I've heard your impression too. Sounds like you doing Gilmour as well. :cool:

    I don't know...play his stuff reasonably well and you can use a Jackson RR1...no one will notice or give a schidt.

    I don't know if this is "reasonably well" but here's PF on a PRS in full humbucking mode.

    Pickups and amp probably have more to do with it. The guitar is just a pickup holder.

    I knew you were saying I sound like me. Thats a compliment. And I was returning it, saying you sound like you. Its what we should strive for, to gather our influences and distill them down to our own voice. :D

    And cars are just engine holders. Put the same powerplant in a truck or a sports car, they'll perform the same!

    Hey, @slash1814!

    All of those choices'll get you started on chasing Gilmour's tone- I don't think you could go wrong w/any of 'em.

    The MIM will have ceramic pickups, and sound a little hotter than the others.

    Not personally acquainted w/the Squier Standard, but from everything I've heard over the years, would not hesitate to pick one up.

    The CV Series is remarkable.

    I'm partial to the VM '70s (and, thus, cast the one vote in your survey, so far:p), having picked one up a few months ago. Thing was spectacular, right out of the box. Added plus: throw on a solid black pickguard, and you've got a Black One tribute, in the making.
