(hennemusic) David Gilmour is streaming a video preview of a new exhibition of his guitar collection that opened in London this week ahead of an auction in New York this June.

Hosted by BBC Radio 6 Music presenter Matt Everitt, the footage gives viewers an advance look at the event at Christie's auctioneers in the UK capital, which runs from March 27-31 and is free to the public with reserved tickets available at christies.com.

The exhibition - which will also be seen in Beverly Hills, CA (May 7-11) and New York City (June 14-19) - gives fans a look at more than 120 guitars owned by the Pink Floyd legend ahead of a June 20 auction of some of his personal collection.

Not only the largest and most comprehensive sale of guitars ever offered at auction, the collection details the musical history of one of the world's most influential guitarists and the iconic Fender Stratocaster the rocker played on classic 1970 Pink Floyd albums "The Dark Side Of The Moon", "Wish You Were Here", "Animals" and "The Wall." All proceeds from the Christie's auction will benefit charitable causes.

"These guitars have been very good to me and many of them have given me pieces of music over the years," Gilmour explains. "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!" Watch the video here.
