Apparently, a great deal of the electric guitar parts in the very early days (Including most, though not all of the Please Please Me album) are actually John and George on their (plugged in) Gibsons and not the famous Ric/Gretsch combo. The title song of the aforementioned album and the 1963 version of "One After 909" are good examples of what they both sound like plugged in. They still used their regular electrics on some early songs ("Twist And Shout" and "I Saw Her Standing There") but those amplified jumbos show up on lot of songs that you wouldn't expect (Like John's parts on "I Feel Fine" and "You're Going To Lose That Girl", the latter of which may* be the last time it appears plugged-in on record).

 

 

*I've also heard that the extreme distortion on "Revolution" was one of the Gibsons plugged into the board and overdriven, but I've also heard that it was an Epiphone Casino.
