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 original set of 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 one on his 'Billabong' Wine Red Les Paul as well

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. 

That's cool. I always wondered what kind of pickups he used on that fender

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, 9/9/1997 (used on Josie and Touchdown Boy). I can attach some images/snapshots if you would like.

Finally here is a shot of the backup guitar I was talking about. It's not the greatest, but it certainly is something.

A few more. However I can't post the pictures themselves, since the website claims it as copyright material (as it rightfully should be) by the photographer.

These were taken at the Reading Festival on August 22nd, 1997. A few of the pics already posted are from the same event, but there are a few other good pics as well. It also looks like Tom went blonde after the '97 Warped Tour

That is true. I'm referring to that after they finished up Dude Ranch, he went to black hair and had it like that for the entire Warped Tour. And then when the tour ended, he went back to blonde.

This is where Toms backup strat appears, from 22:45 until 29:28

Yes. I was the one that put the time stamps in.

he was playing it in 94.

Thanks. I edited it so it says 1994 instead of 1995. Also is there any chance of posting the collage you have to see if there are any more photos of the strat?

Awesome. It would be very much appreciated. If you have a lot to go through, I'm not in a hurry or anything like that.
