All in all it's just another brick in the ... Telecaster
This isn't just another bog standard "relic job". It's a Fender Custom Shop "Brick" Telecaster. I'll let the eBay seller explain:
This is one of three ever created and below is a description of the guitar and its builder, it comes with a certificate from Fender and has been played by Roger Waters who also signed it. It was build by Fender to celebrate Pink Floyd's "The Wall", they put a lot of thought into it and all three were made by hand so in reality each one is unique as there are slight changes to each one.

This Guitar was flown to New York to Roger Waters home where he signed it for me, he commented on the sound of the guitar on how unusual it was plus the attention to detail that Fender had put into the making of this guitar which he thought was unbelievable as he was very impressed.

This custom Telecaster was created by Fender Master Builder Paul Waller, who, throughout his 9 years of dedicated work at Fender, has created custom guitars for artists such as U2’s Adam Clayton and Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood!

This incredible guitar is 1 of only 3 that Paul built for the 2004 NAMM show - one of which went straight into Paul’s own personal collection. The body and neck feature an entirely hand crafted 3D design, whilst the ebony (yes, ebony!) fingerboard continues the brick theme with a highly detailed inlay. To top it all off the guitar has been authentically aged, enhancing the overall character and understated charm of what is quite possibly one of Fender’s most interesting creations.

Currently listed on eBay UK with a Buy It Now price of £15,500.

Thanks to Ian W for alerting me to this guitar on eBay.
