In this Fender video interview with Ed O’Brien, Ed O’Brien talks about his first guitar, a 1986 Squier Stratocaster electric guitar, black finish with a white pickguard. He says, “I got my first Strat - it was a Squire Strat - and it was 1986. This Squier Strat was about £180 and I saved up, and I got it. It was black with a white pickguard, and I don’t think it was the nicest neck [laughs], but I loved it, I didn’t give a shit. And I had that [guitar] all the way through until 1995 when all our gear was nicked in the yellow Penske van. So I played it on Pablo Honey, and on The Bends…” (1:43)
Ed O' Brien can also be seen playing the guitar with On A Friday some time in the late eighties. http://piemerica.org/tired/88c.jpg
