Does anyone know what make of guitar Craig used during the first part of his time with the band? It was his main guitar for about 8 years. It was a strat-ish right hander, probably a cheapo catalogue make. Any clues?

I've long wanted to know this myself....John Leckie commented that CS had odd guitars that he had customised - I assume this was to make them comfortable for a left-handed player.

I'd like to know too... it's hard to find a pic with the whole guitar in shot...

I've never been quite sure if he had the same guitar for 9/10 years and just took the scratchplate off at some point. It would have had a respray around 84-ish too if that's the case. I think the white Stratocaster made its first appearance in 1990.

My theory is that it was always the same guitar; it just became more and more 'modified' over time (that bridge pickup looks dodgy already!) :D Remember the supposed reason for Craig's sacking: "failure to maintain amps and equipment." I think he played it til it fell apart... I've done that! :D
