Brian Molko & Stefan Olsdal used this guitar when recording their latest album 'Never Let Me Go'. A copy of which is included in the sale on rare translucent Pink double vinyl. The guitar comes with a letter of authenticity signed by both members of the band.

The guitar is in excellent condition and full working order with out any breaks or issues. USA build quality, the Elite Stratocasters are exceptional guitars, finished in the highly desirable Olympic Pearl.
