"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
Luke Weiler of Positive Mental Trip has used a 2007 Fender American Custom VG Stratocaster live and in the studio since 2007. It was the only electric guitar used on the 2012 album “change your mind” and was used on almost all electric guitar tracks on the 2017 album as well. (“The black and white album”) Luke was known to play an American Fender stratocaster he was borrowing off of a friend and a Mexican Fender Stratocaster live during the 2005-2006 Positive Mental Trip Band era. The Fender Stratocaster will always be a huge part of Positive Mental Trip’s live guitar sound. Even when Luke Weiler is seen playing another guitar live you will always ussually see a Fender Stratocaster on a stand ready right behind him. Ussually if Luke is not playing a Fender Stratocaster live during a Positive Mental Trip set another guitarist is playing a Fender Stratocaster standing right next to him shredding.more
