"I used this Fender Strat on the Smiths US and UK tours of 1986. It is a 1962 body with a 1963 neck. I used it to record 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out', 'I Know It's Over' and some others." This Strat had a maple neck when it was used with the Smiths. It was one of Johnny's main guitars on the 1986 tours, and was used exclusively with a capo, for songs like "There Is A Light" and "Frankly, Mr. Shankly".

Mick Mars plays a 1962 Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar in Fiesta Red, white pickguard, and a rosewood fingerboard. He has had it refretted, but otherwise maintains it is in great condition.
This is a live performance of the recently (6 days ago) dropped single "Holding On" from their upcoming album. The guitar can be seen all through the video. I have never seen Adam play this guitar before and by the looks of it its brandnew. I have no clue what the brand is. Im guessing its a custom job by the looks of the headstock. It has a Strat-body and the headstock is more squared-up/angular then the more common strat-headstocks. The finish is oxblood-red, without matching headstock. As far i know this finish is uncommen on a strat or strat-like guitar. The rest of the guitar looks like your typical strat.more
> “I can’t really even describe to you the moment I found that guitar,” he told Fender.com. “You are really lucky if you can find one or two in your entire life – even if you are somebody like me who has bought and sold literally hundreds of Strats. That guitar – I was leaving with that guitar. Whether it cost $50,000, it was going out the door with me. I knew that I had found the instrument that I had been looking for my entire life. It was really magical.”more
