GIS reveals that he used a black Les Paul Custom.

One pic has what looks like a Fender Twin Reverb in the background and a smaller amp I can't identify in the foreground.

Well, when I saw him years ago, he had a les paul, and I believe it was a red one. I can't remember his amp.

Also, I firmly believe he was using a sun-ra level of psychosis and an invisible 6th finger.

I'm not sure how reliable it is, but there's a list of gear used by Sharrock on this page of Guitar World Presents the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.

He also talks briefly about gear in this interview.

I've seen a picture of Sonny in the late 80's using a Les Paul, rat pedal, and playing through a boogie mkII or mkIV combo.
