In Episode #3: This episode details the history of the famous 0001 serial number Fender Stratocaster - "It is as good a Strat as I have ever played, it's beautiful. How do you improve on perfection?". He also demonstrates how it was the rhythm guitar on "Another Brick In A Wall Part 2" and remarks on the current status of Pink Floyd.

He also details some of the recordings on which it has it appeared and says, "It’s certainly earned it’s keep."
In Episode #2: Acoustic Guitars, David talks about and plays the twelve and six string Martin acoustic guitars that he wrote and recorded the classic ‘Wish You Were Here’ on and how yet again he was the victim of an opportunistic guitar thief.
