  1. Just wanted to say, thanks for putting so much work into this and sharing!
  2. I’m indifferent. If I was there watching them play enema front to back live with skiba, I’m sure I’d still have a good time. But for me personally, seeing them without Tom is not the same. If it were mark, Tom and Travis playing enema I’d probably care more and want to make the trip to see it happen. I was too young to go to shows when they were touring enema, so anytime I could have the chance to see them play anything from enema or before (rare, I know) I would take it in. For what it’s worth, 20 years for EOTS is sort of a big deal and I feel surprised it’s not being promoted more with merchandise etc. it’s definitely a cash grab. Even though they will probably never do re-issues or cool box sets, some more limited vinyl/tapes and some merch would all fly online.
  3. Is it possible that after signing with MCA, Tom used some money that could be spent on gear for dude ranch to purchase this mysterious back up guitar and/or one of the Mesa Boogies he used or even new cabs? i would have to look at the time line, but I know after the ampegs he had a rackmount dual rectifier, followed by the triple rectifier head (seen in the Josie video. One side had a pink alien head and the other had a blue alien head. He sold this year a few years ago.)
  4. here’s my rig and my two favorite guitars. I don’t have a group shout of all my guitars, so here’s this for now!
  5. Thank you all for sharing this great info! There’s some awesome stuff in this thread. ive always been obsessed with Tom’s LP’s. It was a short lived era but I thought they were really cool, and while similar bands at the time were playing Les pauls (Lagwagon, NUFAN, etc) they seemed to have been mostly kept stock. i do want to replicate one of these. I am positive that they are all 1997 les Paul standards but even if I can get one for under $2000 I don’t know that I would want to sticker it up etc. thinking abiut going the epiphone rout. The wine red trad pro looks like a good starting point as it’s more of the dark spalted top like the 97 Tom had, rather than the common maple top.
  6. Thanks for confirming this! I my self will usually track with one guitar for rhythms and another for “leads” so I figured the same could’ve gone for Tom, but also, he seems to be very forward thinking and into whatever he’s using at the time. Seeing that this was before they were working with Jerry Finn and all his gear, Tom May have been favoring the LP (and more so, the duncan invader). Either way, the recordings sound good.
  7. This would’ve been the last time the band recorded with Scott if I’m not mistaken? I wonder if Tom recorded the original Mutt and Christmas Track with one of his Les Pauls. Sounds like the Strat with the x2n but I believe around the time they went in to track this he had been using the Gibson’s live.

    Yo new people!

    Hi everyone, my name is mil, I’m new here. I found this site via the sticker strat discussion and Davey making scans of the stickers (wish I was here earlier so I could’ve gotten a set!). anyways, I got into blink after first hearing them during the EOTS era (like a lot of people). I was very young and turned on to pop punk, punk, metal, rock and hardcore by an older cousin of mine. blink became my favorite band and has been ever since. im very interested in the history of the band. I collect some blink stuff and started playing guitar because of them. I have two blink tattoos and have seen them three times. (I was much too young to go alone during their original stint so I wasn’t not able to start going to their shows until 2009). Im surprised it took me this long to get to this forum but I’m excited to be here.
