Adrian's red Gibson, his green Jackson, his white Jackson and a bass guitar can be seen too... (I guess this is from his home studio).

This is his jam room in Malibu.

It seems that he has 3 green Jacksons there and 1 white jackson. Also there is the red Slash LP.

The 2 green touring Jacksons (including the prototype, the one with the worn neck (his main guitar) and the Goldtop) reside in UK in his other home studio.

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 his black Powerslave / Somewhere in Time era '64 strat, although it has the same later day Floyd Rose install.

Emmm... This is a bit suspicious to me...

Dave has had a vintage rosewood strat yes. But it's a 1964 and is still in IM warehouse and was last seen in 2013. Still in Dave's possesion.

Also, the first guitar Dave had with a Floyd was the electric blue ESP. 64 had a Kahler, but it has been replaced by Floyd since. Also that POM backstage shot, I'm 95% sure that is the '64.

Would never buy this... Too suspicious.

I mean, there's so many reasons why this is almost certainly some sort of scam, but even from checking out the listing and what's been said here, they're very obviously being incredibly misleading on the listing. Even if this guitar was the real deal, it's not "the" guitar or even "a" guitar for Davey like they're making it out to be, rather just another vintage Strat in similar spec to his other ones that he happened to own at some point and quite possibly never even played on stage.

Also... Why doesn't (in the photo) this strat have pickup mounting rings...

That would suggest that it was acquired in the 90's. Before 1986 all Dave's strats had mounting rings.
