    Adrian, Janick and Dave's guitars and Steve's basses

    This '62 strat claiming to be formerly owned by Dave has shown up on Reverb. They claim to have "written verification" from Dave that he owns it, but to me it looks as legit as a $3 bill. Based on the pictures, I am not even sure which guitar of his they are claiming it used to be. Certainly not...

    I love how Dave just has one guitar on his side of the room, guessing it is the cream colored rosewood board ESP he used during the 7th Tour.

    Nice write up Matic22! It all sounds accurate to me. It is also good to know I'm not the only one on earth that obsesses about Maiden's guitars.:shred:

    OMG, the guy selling this thing is such a tool. He is selling it for $25,000. This thing was clearly never played on stage with Iron Maiden. He has no provenance that it was owned by Dave or Adrian, but only indicates that it was owned by Bill Barkley. His evidence for that is a letter from a...

    That Jackson dinky and the purported Dave Murray strats that Matt’s already sold do not match up to any guitar I have ever seen either one of them play. Bruce’s signature on the Dean look suspicious as well.

    Adrian, Janick and Dave's guitars and Steve's basses

    I randomly found this picture on Trip Advisor from the Hard Rock Cafe in Gdansk, Poland. Looks to be a black guitar that like the one in Paris, was never used on stage...

    N No, that is a real pre-cbs strat. The strat reissues in the 80’s had incorrect narrow spacing of the fret markets at the 12th fret. The guitar he is holding has the 12th fret markers properly lined up and centered under the A and B strings. The narrow fret markets werenot corrected on the...

    Interesting- never noticed this guitar before. Looks like it has uncovered black humbuckers and I can’t make out if the bridge pickup is angles or not.

    Found a TV promo video where he appears to be playing this guitar. A still picture from the above video:

    The guitar he played in the Women in Uniform video is the Kossoff strat with black pick guard and PAF style pickups. Dave did not have a black CBS strat.

    Dave actually had two blue ESP stratocasters. The first one was electric (ice?) blue that showed up only on the Somewhere on Tour. That guitar had the ESP shaped headstock and 22 frets. On the Seventh Tour, he got a new one that was sonic blue (or something similar) which had the Fender shaped...

    Came across this on the internet. I missed the actual auction, but this is the first Dave Murray owned guitar I have seen that was sold off and it looks legitimate. I am guessing this was the first guitar given to him by ESP prior to the similarly spec'd ice blue model that showed up on the...
