Ever since I heard this song, I've loved it... and being a guitarist, loved the solo. I am looking for the history on what guitar was used on this track. Reading around I found as a general consensus that he used a fuzz face and treble booster together into a Marshall. That said, there is controversy as to which guitar was used, at the time he had a strat and a 335. He was always using the 335 in the early years but if I read all this correctly, a few months before the album, In Rock was recorded he got a Strat. Using both a treble booster/fuzz face makes it a bit difficult but does this sound more like a strat or 335? I don't want this to be a fender vs gibson thread, he uses the 335 in the live in UK show and the strat in the made in japan album. They both sound awesome, I am just curious to what he used on the original track.
Solo begins on neck pup at 3:30. Around 4:00 he switches to the bridge pickup.
