Johnny Marr rocks a 9-pickup Strat in the video for new song Spirit Power And Soul

Johnny Marr (opens in new tab) could probably wear a chicken suit and look cool, so a Strat (opens in new tab) with nine pickups is always going to turn heads in his video for comeback single Spirit, Power And Soul. 

There's a distinct vibe of his days in Electronic to the song's sound - the first taste of forthcoming EP series Fever Dreams Pts 1-4 - but the details of this particular custom electric guitar (opens in new tab) are yet to be revealed. 

“Spirit, Power And Soul is a kind of mission statement," Marr says of the song. "I had an idea about an electro sound with gospel feeling, in my own words – an electro soul anthem.”
