Hi, I'm new to all this so forgive me if this has been discussed before.
I'm looking for specific model number(s) and any other information for the Destroyer that Adrian Smith played (with Iron Maiden) in the early 1980s (upto 1984)

I've managed to get two screen grabs from videos from 82 and 83 (approx), which I think show the same guitar, the latter with its pickups changed or possibly the covers removed.

I'm looking to source one of these, or a similar one so any thoughts on value/availability in the used market etc would also be very welcome

The Destroyer Adrian used was the DT-300FR. They are very hard to find these days. The DT-300 has a set neck & gold hardware. The DT-50FR looks very similar but has a bolt on neck & chrome hardware.
