He brought the guitar in 1975 for £120 and kept on adding stencils, stickers and new licks of paint giving it its unique look.

To continue this with the new guitar, artist Shepard Fairey has worked on a customization kit with comes with stencils and stickers inspired by the custom design Strummer decorated many of his instruments with.

The kit comes in a classic 12” album cover.
