  1. Finally here is a shot of the backup guitar I was talking about. It's not the greatest, but it certainly is something.
  2. Also I meant to upload this image of the main guitar. A good shot of the side.
  3. I believe it's in October sometime, between the 21st and the 23rd.
  4. What kind of amp? Head/cabinet or a combo like you have now?
  5. Yeah I had wondered too. Even without the stickers, it's the ultimate high gain Strat. He also used another Strat with different stickers back in 1997 on the non Warped Tour shows of that year. I believe it had a Bill Lawrence L-500 of a sort in it with standard Strat pickups in the neck and middle in a non-slanted HSS configuration. From my understanding, this is the only backup guitar from this era. Notable appearances include Nile Theater, 6/21/1997 (used for the entire show), and San Bernadino, 9/4/1997 (used on Josie and Touchdown Boy). I can attach some images/snapshots if you would like.
  6. So in short, everyone (except Skiba) is to blame one way or another?
  7. And a few more I know Tom isn't left handed, that's how the photo came out. If you look behind him, you can see the Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Rackmount he used back then Here's one from after he took the stickers off, roughly late 1997. However he did add a few first generation blink bunny stickers by the bridge and on the pickguard in between the pickups. He has on on his 'Billabong' Wine Red Les Paul
  8. That's better If you look closely in the second pic, you can see the Rackmount Mesa/Boogie he used back in the day.
  9. I have more pictures of the guitar myself, but it won't let me post them? I keep getting the 'You are only allowed to upload 20.48kb' message. HELP!
  10. No I was not, although I wish I was. This is solely based on what I've seen in old photos and videos, like the ones Thibaut182 and I posted. Regarding the Instagram photo, it was one that Tom had posted of some Macbeth shoes and some guitars. That guitar just happened to be in the picture.
  11. It feels like Bang Bang was just left over from American Idiot or a nimrod. b-side
  12. Oh yeah. I had forgotten SOMA had moved locations before they could headline
  13. Epic photos. After this they went into the studio to make Dude Ranch. Also, were they headlining or opening? Looks like on the main stage too
  14. Hey everyone. Since I made the list of the stickers that are on this guitar, I may as well do a whole rundown of the guitar, if this ever becomes helpful to anyone. This guitar is indeed a real Fender Stratocaster (I've read other places that says it isn't for some reason), American made sometime in the 1990's, and started appearing around 1995 and used until 1997. It's specs include a 22 fret maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard and 2 screw bridge, finished in Olympic White with a 3 ply white/black/white pickguard. But that's where the similarities end. Aside from the stickers (most of which are listed above) this guitar once wore*, it's most prominent features are the pickups. It featured a white DiMarzio X2N set on an angle in the bridge position, similar to that of Blue, Billie Joe Armstrong's guitar. Tom's guitar also features a Seymour Duncan JB Jr. in the middle position and a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails in the neck position. The DiMarzio X2N is partially responsible for the guitar tones that are heard on Cheshire Cat, They Came To Conquer Uranus, Lemmings 7", Dude Ranch, I Won't Be Home For Christmas, and any video or recordings of the group from 1995-1997. He still has it to this day and it lives in the Angels And Airwaves studio, along with his other past Fenders and Gibsons. *Sometime in 1997, Tom took all the stickers off the guitar and had a different kind of design on it. He used it until the end of the year before he became more fond of Les Pauls. It has also been seen in a few photos that have been posted on Instagram. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask away.
