World most expensive guitar!

World’s most expensive guitar?

A signed Fender Standard Series Stratocaster became the world’s most expensive guitar after fetching a massive $2.8 million at auction in Doha, Qatar.

The Strat was signed by a string of rock musicians in aid of victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami disaster.

According to Fender, “the idea started when Fender Europe’s Jamie Crompton contacted Bryan Adams to see how people from the music industry could reach out to help the victims of such a devastating natural disaster. Bryan got his phone book out and rang 19 of rock’s most treasured artists to sign a Standard Series Fender Stratocaster guitar, donated by Jamie and Fender Europe.”

The artists who signed the guitar were:

- Jimmy Page
- Eric Clapton
- Mick Jagger
- Brian May
- Liam Gallagher
- Jeff Beck
- Pete Townshend
- Ray Davies
- David Gilmour
- Bryan Adams
- Tony Iommi
- Mark Knopfler
- Angus Young
- Malcolm Young
- Keith Richards
- Ronnie Wood
- Paul McCartney
- Sting
- Noel Gallagher

The previous record for the world’s most expensive guitar was held by Eric Clapton’s $959,500.00 black Strat.
