Johnny Marr's guitar equipment

Discussion in 'General Discussion archive 2000 (read-only)' started by The Kurious Oranj, Dec 28, 2000.

  1. Does anyone have any information about the guitars/amps/effects Johnny used during his time with the Smiths? All I've heard so far is the use of a Roland JC-120 amp and Rickenbacker 330 12 string (something like that anyway). I've got a poster of the Smiths from Melody Maker magazine which pictures Johnny holding a nice looking Les Paul Gold Top too... is that the one that got robbed at the Astoria does anyone know? Thanks for reading,
    Alex

    That's the one yeah! Stuart Lee nicked the idea from the title of a song by Manc band The Fall. The song was called 'Kurious Oranj' taken off the album entitled 'I Am Kurious, Oranj', check it out if you get the time! I'm a fan of both so that's why I've been boring you silly for the last 20 seconds :p Do accept my apologies,
    Alex!

    Don't apologise! Did you see the last episode where they squeezed him, and he was screeching? Kept me awake for days.

    That's a great Fall album. One of my faves. I was pleasantly surprised to see Lee and Herring (sound like sauce manufacturers) adopt him. They also played a very short snatch of the song as they introduced the sketch. Surreal stuff. I really like the Simon bloke with his hobbies. Now that WAS strange.

  7. I read that he has given a lot of his Smiths days stuff to Noel Gallagher...

    Quite a shame!
    Suppose he'd auction one of his early Gibsons (Classic Series, didn't he have an ES reissue?), or one of the Ricks ... how much would it go?

    (he could donate the money to artists in need of a record contract ...)
