If Peter Buck was representing Rickenbacker jangle stateside in the eighties, then Johnny Marr of The Smiths was doing the same for the UK.
Despite its appearance in the This Charming Man video, Marr's 1983 jetglo 330 wasn't used to record the famous intro riff, instead a 1952 Telecaster was Marr's six string of choice.
Marr says of the 330: "I got it from A1 Repairs on Oxford Road in Manchester and it was my main guitar at all the early gigs. It's the sound of the riff on What Difference Does It Make and Reel Around The Fountain, all of the first album and on other albums too. I still use it now."
