Do I own a Clapton-guitar?

Some years ago my dad gave me a guitar for christmas and told me it was once owned by Eric Clapton himself... my dad bought it from a photographer who stated that Clapton gave it to him as payment for a photo-shoot during soundcheck for a concert in sweden in 1984. The guitar is a "Fender Lead 1" and is manufactured in 1981, I also have pictures (taken by the same photographer) showing Clapton playing the guitar. I would really like to find out if it indeed is the same guitar but I have no idea how to do this... Does anyone have a suggestion?

Any chance of a look at the photos of Clapton with the guitar, and the supposedly same guitar today?

This page - - features a list of guitars that Clapton has used. I don't think it's up-to-date and may not be exhaustive.
