Back to the Future (1985)

movie-mistakes Back to future

Only someone very serious about their guitars would notice this one!

Marty takes the high school dance by storm when he goes back in time to 1955 and shows them how to rock, playing Johnny B Goode on the electric guitar. However the guitar he uses in the scene was a Gibson ES-345 which wasn’t actually introduced until three years later in 1958.

Obviously the film is about time travel so some artistic licence can be allowed – perhaps he stopped off and picked it up along his way!
