Q.  Hello Oracle,

Is the grey Fender Stratocaster Mr. Buckland has been playing for GS a new guitar or and old one he had lying around and has decided to use for this album's shows? (It looks rather worn). Thanks!

Matt says:
It's new, a Strat built for the tour by Bill Nash, made to seem old. Does it look grey? It's meant to be black...ah well.

Q.  Hey all-knowing Oracle!
Once you said that Jonny's favourite guitar is named Sunny. I heard that one of his favourite ones is a Fender Telecaster Thinline, so I was wondering if Sunny is a Fender Telecaster Thinline?
Thanks, Lea :)

Matt: Yep, that's the one! It was the main guitar in the Ghost Stories DVD* if you have a look - it's got a sunburst finish, hence the name.

*Matt is referring to the TV special that we told you about the broadcast of back in May.

Q.  Hey oracle, just wondering if Johnny ever uses a Fender Twin Reverb, or is it safe to say he sticks to his Devilles?

Matt: He uses all sorts, including Twins, but we always come back to the DeVilles. We swap out the Fender speakers for Celestion Vintage drivers, by the way. A bit chunkier sounding and less harsh.

Q.  Hi, all-knowing Oracle! I was just wondering, did Jonny ever use his Lake Placid Blue Fender Telecaster live?

Another one for Matt...
"The only blue Tele I recall is the one Jonny had back in the Parachutes days - a JD model with a big dent in it that actually belongs to Will, who I think got it cheap cos of the damage.
It's now his dressing room/warm up guitar and travels with us pretty much everywhere!"

Q.  Hi Oracle, can you please ask Matt McGinn what Jonny's new amps are that he's been using for the recent shows since the iTunes gig? How come he's abandoned his trusty Fender Devilles?


Your wish is my command...
"Not abandoned, don't worry - it's the same rig, we just put the speakers in soundproof isolation boxes away from the stage, so the audience didn't get their ears blown apart in the small room."
