  1. @Thibaut182 Is there any possible way you could fix the images in your last post because they aren’t showing up. Anyone else having this problem?
  2. This was brought up to me by another user and its what prompted me to do this thread. I've heavily been into Green Day since I was 13, and given the gearhead that I am I was immediately drawn to the guitars. This thread is to basically document all of the strats that Billie Joe played through the years, starting here: 1. Fernandes Strat RST-50 (Blue) - Given to Billie by his mom for his 10th birthday, who saved up all of her waitressing tips to buy it for him. It was purchased from Armstrong's guitar teacher, George Cole in the early 80's. Sometime before or during the formation Green Day (then called Sweet Children), the bridge pickup was replaced with a Bill Lawrence L-500 Lead humbucker set an angle. This is what sparks the trend of the angled humbucker feature. This lasted until August of 1994, until it was replaced and unknown brand of a white humbucker (believed to be a Seymour Duncan) and was seen at Woodstock '94. This was then replaced again with another Bill Lawrence pickup (which can be seen in Jaded In Chicago), and lasts until the beginning of 1995 when it was replaced again with a black Seymour Duncan JB. Although the most notable thing about the guitar and what would mark the influence for countless bands and musicians was the constant plastering of stickers throughout the years. Featured on: Every record up until 'nimrod.' Tours: Every Green Day tour Photos: 1991 1993 1994 1996 1997-2000 2002 2005-2009 2010 2013-2014 2015-present These are the several backup strats for Blue, in order by appearance: 1. Black Fender Stratocaster (1992-1993) - First known backup for Blue, acquired in late 1992. It was an early 90's Fender American Standard Strat with a black pickguard, rosewood fretboard, HSS configuration, and a Bill Lawrence pickup. There were a few stickers placed on this guitar. It was only seen during 1993. Featured on: No albums. This guitar was only seen live. Tours: 1993 Kerplunk! tour, 'Recipe For Hate' tour opening for Bad Religion 2. Blue Fender Stratocaster (1997-98) - This particular instrument was nicknamed 'Frankenstein' since the parts for this guitar were acquired from various locations. Also note left handed bridge. Featured on: No albums. Touring guitar only Tours: 1997-98 nimrod tour 3. Blue backup #2 & Pink Strats (1997-98) - Also most likely parts guitars Featured on: No albums. Touring only Tours: nimrod (1997-98) Blue backup #2 (top right corner) Pink strat
  3. Its a shame it got overshadowed because it really is a great record. If he thinks an album's greatness is ranked by sales, that is really saying something.
  4. I'm saying if Tom's was a '94, then it would have the features I talked about yesterday. I'm not guaranteeing it was made in that year, it could very well be a '93 or even before that.

    Millencolin

    Da Strike is awesome. Entrance At Rudebrook is one of my favorites. Killercrush is in my playlist for practicing drums so there's enough said about that.
  6. As previously stated, Tom's original sticker strat based on the evidence presented in this thread was a 1994 American Standard Fender Strat. If this is the case, wouldn't it be that it is one of the 40th Anniversary Strats? https://www.seymourduncan.com/forum/showthread.php?146805-1994-40th-Anniversary-Fender-American-Standard-Stratocaster According to this link, all American Standard Strats made during this year included a neckplate with the phrase "40 years...and still rockin" and a badge on the headstock. So if Tom's was one of these anniversary guitars, it had the special neckplate and headstock badge.

    Millencolin

    Agreed. Any band where the accent is noticeable makes them unique.

    The Get Up Kids - new EP on its way

    Just picked up my vinyl today. The vinyl is pink which is rather fitting with the artwork.

    Millencolin

    Interesting comparing the vocalist to Bad Religion since Millencolin are Swedish. The accent is very noticeable I will add.
  10. Those songs are honestly hard to play on the drums. Not because of the speed, but the timing of fills and all that.

    Less Than Jake

    It’s a solid record, a few of their best selections are on that album.
  12. Q182

    Japanese Punk Scene Superthread

    Hi-Standard? Probably the best known of all the bands mentioned here.
  13. Q182

    Less Than Jake

    I'm honestly surprised no one started a thread for this band. I've seen them three times, it'll be a fourth time at Warped Tour this year, and they're in my top bands of all time. These are some of my favorites by them (even still I like all of their albums. Yes, that includes In With The Out Crowd):
  14. For those that want to make a replica of this guitar, here's another option to use guitar-wise: https://shop.fender.com/en-US/electric-guitars/stratocaster/player-stratocaster/0144503519.html Fender Player Series. Has the two pivot bridge, 22 fret neck, would just need to swap pickups, saddles, and sticker it up accordingly.
