I have a pretty high res pic of Tom playing that guitar, the same one you have in your signature I think; I have it saved tagged as 1996. 07. 30.

This photo is actually of Tom’s main sticker strat.

The backup guitar we’re trying to figure out here dates to mid-1997 is a bit more off white in color and has entirely new stickers we’ve never seen before. 

Nevertheless, thank you for sharing this photo! We don’t have many references of the original sticker strat with the sack lunch sticker on it so this is great.

i love how there are people on the blink182 forum of all places that can actually talk tone. usually it's "thunderous, syrupy, woody, dirty, wooly,organic" or some BS. I still think though y

It's a strat. With stickers. and a black humbucker;) i don't think its all that important which Marshall you choose to sound like tom. Most 900s have diode clipping and are very different distort

at least through 97, tom was a no pedal dude. the pic we have from the whiskey show opening for descendents in october 96 shows tom running two VL-1002's, either bridged (like fletcher in PW does

Oh, sorry I got a little confused :D I actually have it the full image with Mark in it, and less compressed. I had to butcher it a bit to fit it here. I can dm you a link to the full one if you want

All good! Any old pictures are always a good score, especially ones we haven't seen before.

That would be awesome, thank you!

you've seen the dude who bought the original, right?

 

I have. Jon's sticker strat video led me here and building my own.

My Gibson actually just arrived today. 1998 LP standard. Already have the rainbow strap and all stickers but the Kung Fu records, should I decide to sticker it up.

this is a beautiful guitar, even out of blink context. in my opinion, black/ebony is one of the best finishes on a guitar. do you have any plans with it?

Thanks dude.

 

I'm getting all the stickers that were on it when Tom first got it. Lady luck, kung fu records, etc and then deciding on stickering it or not. People tell me I'll be an asshole to do it to an LP.

 

Might replace the bridge pickup with a JB.

vinyl will come off fine without harming the body if you ever want to desticker it. i say sticker, because otherwise what is the point of having the right model and year. but that is just me.
