This guitar was Bolan's most used guitar. It was a 'Chablis' coloured Les Paul, but is presumed by many to have originally been sunburst or a goldtop, refinished orange and then to the most well-known 'Chablis' colour. The original neck broke sometime in the 70's and was replaced with a Les Paul Custom neck. It was used up until his death in 1977.more
> I used other guitars besides Dean. I used a Marc Bolan Les Paul with PAF pickups in it and a Joe Bonamassa Signature with [EMG] 57 or 58 humbuckers. I also used my old skull Signature Dean and I used a Fender Strat for soloing. I also used a [Harmony] Bobcat Holiday guitar from 1964 that’s crazy. I found it at Guitar Center. I plugged it into a Mesa Boogie or some version of a Roland Jazz Chorus amp and it was really clean and it was like, “Oh, my god.” I used that on “Love Of the Damned.” I also used a Gibson Hummingbird.more
