Later this week, June 20, legendary Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour will auction off more than 120 guitars from his personal collection through Christie's in New York. For those who can't make it to the auction in person though, Christie's has created a virtual tour of the collection on its website.

The 3D virtual space features each of the guitars that are set to go under the hammer on Thursday—including the legendary Black Strat, the #0001 Strat and the "Wish You Were Here" Martin.

“These guitars have been very good to me and many of them have given me pieces of music over the years," Gilmour said in a statement announcing the auction. "They have paid for themselves many times over, but it’s now time that they moved on. Guitars were made to be played and it is my wish that wherever they end up, they continue to give their owners the gift of music. By auctioning these guitars I hope that I can give some help where it is really needed and through my charitable foundation do some good in this world. It will be a wrench to see them go and perhaps one day I’ll have to track one or two of them down and buy them back!”
