Back in January, David Gilmour sent shockwaves through the guitar community when he announced his intention to auction off more than 120 guitars—including his iconic black Strat—from his personal collection.

Now, the Pink Floyd legend has announced a mini-series of three podcasts in which he will discuss some of the instruments going under the hammer.

Produced with Cup And Nuzzle, the three episodes of the podcast will be released on May 31, June 7 and June 14, and cover the Black Strat, the "Wish You Were Here" Martin acoustics and the "0001" Strat, respectively. 

“These guitars have been very good to me and many of them have given me pieces of music over the years," Gilmour previously said of the auction in a statement. "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!”
