Johnny Marr’s guitars - “they came with Smiths songs in them”

Interesting read here on this morning’s Guardian site.

Johnny Marr on his guitars



Huh? A fender strat with 9 pickups and 18 switches. One reason I chose a tele was because i wanted less options. That guitar would send me crazy!

Seems some may have had a few Oasis songs in them too


Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:

The HSH Pimp (ex Affinity) only has 6 pickups when all are split to singles, does that make 9 when fully loaded ? :rofl: Maybe not. With the standard Strat 5-way and the 3 toggle split switches and the “Tone” pot pup blender, guess that only 5 switches but could be a stretch to say 9. All 3 pups can be active with the 5-way in position 2 or 4 and the blender activated. :metal: :metal: :metal: :metal: :metal: :metal:
But loads of options I’d rather not try and work out how many !
9 pups and 18 switches ? I am not worthy. But I’ll catch the vids later !
