Figured i would add that she's been using a big box EHX Deluxe Memory Man live as her delay on LES songs. I saw it in some pics, but the sound is pretty distinct (i use to own one).

I thought I'd throw my two cents in on the Airline. I think its an original and not an Eastwood. The Eastwood has a black truss rod cover and the base of the controls are black. If you look at PJ's, there is no truss rod cover and the controls are white, which seem to be the same as the originals were. Links to pictures are here:

And i know that her black Tele's are tuned to drop D. Based on all the songs she uses it for. How did you find out about the year models of the Tele's...? Was there an article about it somewhere? To me they look like they are relatively recent, unless they are superbly looked after guitars which seems odd for people who tour so extensively.


Her 1968 black Telecaster was usually in standard tuning. I’m only aware of it being used in drop D for certain songs during the Uh Huh Her and White Chalk tours. Don’t know the date of the Tele with the non-Tele-style bridge saddles. And one of them was John Parish’s, I believe, but then he gave it to her. She also used a white Tele as a backup onstage in 1991-92 but I haven’t come across it in subsequent years.

I’d be most interested in figuring out which amps she was using in the 90s. I’m a bit bummed she hasn’t used Marshalls since then; I’ve only seen her with Vox and Orange this century.

Hello all. Huge guitar nerd and massive PJ/JP fan, as well as her bandmates' other work.

Some of the unknowns pictured above are: Gretsch Jet Firebird (Polly pic), a couple of Hagstrom IIs (Josh Klinghofer, one white and one black). The Danelectro U2 JK is pictured with is a Baritone- the neck is way longer than a regular U2. Not sure about the hollowbody he's pictured with- the photo is too small/blurry and 404s when clicked on now. Looks like possibly a vintage Hofner though.

John Parish's black Telecaster is a '68 and likely all stock aside from the "Andy Summers" style bridge. It is still in JP's possession and was his first electric guitar, and is as it was when he got it plus a peace symbol sticker. This info is from Mr. Parish himself. :)

I recall somewhere a photo AWAMWB era of JP's pedalboard, with an Ibanez AD80 delay, maybe an MXR Distortion plus, and a couple of Joe Gore-built pedals, a Boring boost and another unidentified JG build. Also JP had switches for a signal path with and without a Copicat IC300 tape echo that can be clearly seen in a video shot during lockdown 2020 on Le Cargo. Also a great song! When I saw JP on tour for How Animals Move in 2003, he had an MXR Distortion Plus, a Diaz Tremodillo tremolo...and that was it. He might have had the Copicat back by the AC30. Sounded amazing. Adrian Utley also played guitar and the whole shebang still stands as probably the best show I've ever attended.

Anyway...I've been chasing some of these sounds and bits of kit for years and occasionally bugging JP and Joe Gore with questions they've graciously answered but any and all of them pull amazing sounds out of literally anything, and I've seen them use multiple bits to do the same parts enough to know it's mostly the player, not the gear.
