John Frusciante’s 1999 Fender Custom Shop Silver Sparkle Stratocaster (“Can’t Stop” music video)

John was seen using the guitar during the “Can’t Stop” music video, alongside an orange Fender Toronado. Apparently, neither one of the guitars were his but were rented by the production company specifically to be used in the video.

The director, Mark Romanek, was likely looking for a guitar that would fit the theme orange/white theme. Since all of John’s guitars were vintage 50s/60s models, he probably felt they would look out of place. Allegedly, John protested and wanted to stick with his vintage guitars but was eventually persuaded.

The Silver Strat Today

The current owner of the guitar was kind enough to send in some photos of the guitar. According to him, the guitar changed a coupe of hands since the video was recorded, and before it came into his possession.
