    My friend got this rare photo somewhere. It looks like Gilmour is playing a PRS guitar. I tried to Google this but couldn't see any related results.

    Anyone has seen this before? What concert? What PRS model?
    Thanks!

    Guys, after taking a careful, closer look, I begin to think that this guitar is NOT a PRS. Here's why:

    - The maple top looks too flat and thin for a PRS
    - Headstock looks a bit different than PRS's; in this picture the scoop looks too shallow and both headstock ends seem to be at the same length.
    - tuning poles are different in shape from PRS Phase tuners.
    - I don't see black locking bolts on tuner posts.
    - I don't see serial number writing on the end of the headstock. Yes this area in the picture is out-of-focus, but at least it should be presented, even in blurry form.

    Maybe I am totally wrong. Someone can shade some light on this.

    It looks to me like an older Custom 24.

    It looks to me like David Gilmour is performing in a tuxedo and wearing a bow tie, which shocks me more than seeing him play a PRS.

    Well, that would explain why he broke out his good guitar.

    Do you think he had to use the F strap?! ;)

    (Contractually obliged!)

    He’s not averse to using several different guitars.

    It should be captioned:

    “What the heck are these three extra frets doing here?!”:D

    Hahaha. Thanks for your inputs guys.

    IDK, maybe it's like you guys said, I might be wrong.

    Hopefully someone may have some more photos of the event.

    I Googled around for "David Gilmour tuxedo" and found very little useful info. He seems to have been at a couple of events maybe around 2013 or 2014 wearing a tux with no beard. He's had a beard since about 2015 - though he may have shaved it off recently, I suppose.

    Could have been a "Private event". Weird.

    can’t say about the guitar but he is definitely playing ‘whipping post’.

    Indeed. Maybe he’s finally taking this guitar thing seriously.
