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!

Do small posts with pictures :) Not a whole message with all the pics !

Upload pics to a third party site like imgur or something and then post the links here. The forum's servers aren't meant to host everyone's media.

If you look closely in the second pic, you can see the Rackmount Mesa/Boogie he used back in the day.

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, 9/4/1997 (used on Josie and Touchdown Boy). I can attach some images/snapshots if you would like.

Also I meant to upload this image of the main guitar. A good shot of the side.

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
