In anticipation of David Gilmour’s massive guitar auction, Christie’s has put together a virtual exhibit showcasing the prized instruments that will go under the hammer on 20 June.

As revealed back in March, over 120 instruments from the Pink Floyd legend’s personal collection will be auctioned off for charity. With this virtual guide, you’ll not only be able to ‘walk’ through the exhibit, but also find out each instrument’s history and asking price.

Highlights of the auction, held in New York, include Gilmour’s famed ‘The Black Strat’ along with notable vintage pieces from the likes of Gibson, Martin, Rickenbacker and Gretsch.
