Marty plays the Gibson at the dance.

The Gibson ES-345 was the type of guitar owned by Marvin Berry of Marvin Berry and the Starlighters.

It was used by Marty McFly to play "Johnny B. Goode" at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance at Hill Valley High School on November 12, 1955.

Behind the scenes

  • The model used by Marvin included the optional Bigsby tremolo. Curiously, the dance takes place in 1955, but the ES-345 was not released until four years later, in 1959.
