John (and George too) had a Sonic Blue
Fender Stratocaster by 1965 ...
... and even used it on stage (Dec 1965) ...http://www.dmbeatles.com/forums/index.php?topic=8375.20
Now, in this pic you can see their guitars for one of those shows (Sheffield, Dec 8, 1965):
- 2 Hoffners (Paul)
- 12-string Rick and 1 Casino (George)
- 1 Gibson J-160E and 1 black Rick (John) ...
... and, just in the middle, a DARK stratocaster
... not the sonic blue
one! ... 1965, how?!
... is it
another one for John?
Could it be this one? (John, 1980)
P.S. A very interesting warning up
