Green Day Are Selling Their Used Gear - Including 50 of Billie Joe's Guitars

Recommended Posts

Jimmy Strummer

I would kill for either Smash or one of those drum kits! Either the Leedy one and the Champagne Sparkle one would be amazing to have!! The Slingerland I'm sure would be so much more expensive than the others since Tré said it's most likely the very last one in existence.

Depending on price maybe I’ll buy Smash 

wish he’d include the sparkling silver Gibson

Does anyone know if they provide all required documents for importation at the customs ? Shipping guitars to the EU is quite complicated due to CITES...

Maybe they have decided to start fresh in some ways...

I'm trying not to keep my hopes too high up though, because since AI they've been relatively conservative when it comes to their sound and I don't think that's going to change (which isn't a problem in of itself, it's kinda what most fans want anyway)...

Let's Crowdfund to buy the iHeart guitar! We can smash it again and send every contributor a little piece

I'll be honest, I love crazy, but potentially do-able things like that haha, I'd be in! 

Also, depending on how you regulate the crowdfunding, i.e. how you spread the word, I think the number of people participating might not be too crazy...

I kind of love this idea tbh, though I imagine the price will be outrageous.

For sure, I don't know what to expect, maybe 15k?

Is this an auction site or just straight buy site? The last one they had wasn’t priced outrageously if I recall correctly the last few items I saw (which was like 1 Guitar and bunch of studio effects racks) they were priced accordingly so I’d assume this one will be as well

I think I recall the last one was a straight sale (not auction) but the lowest priced items sold very quickly.

If I’m remembering right, the cheapest guitar last time was like $8,000 USD... 

and yes, straight up buy, not auction.

I thought it was a pretty good idea, but it could easily get out of hand if too many people contributed. I can't imagine breaking a guitar into 100,000 pieces and then having to mail those pieces all over the world. That would take forever, not to mention all the overseas shipping forms you'd have to fill out at the post office.

But seriously if enough people are into it, I guess I'm crazy enough to give it a shot?

I love the idea tbh. I'm sure there's a way you can cut off the number of people contributing if it got out of hand. Group donors together by country and choose a trustworthy representative to send all the pieces to, and they can distribute. If this idea worked it would be amazing :lol:

Yeah it'll be nice to see whatever cool new stuff they have on the next tour!

I'm guessing they have so much stuff that they'll still have a lot left after selling some but it does seem like quite the clear out with some recently used and well known things going. Starting fresh for a new album and tour I guess :dance:

It's interesting that some of the recent stuff is going. Makes it look like they're after something different but who knows, we're probably reading into it too much.

Hope so. The Goldtop for example must be worth a fortune.

 

Anyone else notice in the video advertising the shop, Tre's sat with a mic'd up kit, Mike's bass amp is there mic'd and a guitar amp is mic'd. Seems a bit OTT for a 3 minute advert for an online shop to mic up a full kit and two amps. Could they be demo-ing or am I reading into things too much?

It seems likely they are.

It looks like they filmed that in their practice space. (photo below was posted August 15, around the time they were posting about rehearsing old stuff)

Man living in Australia sucks! 

Not that I could afford one anyway but I would do terrible things for one of those Guitars.

This was mentioned on 93.3 WMMR this morning during their preston and steve show. MMR is a HUGE rock radio station out of Philadelphia so its cool seeing this get a lot of attention.

Kind of late to the party, here, but I have a single piece of glitter from Billie's pocket when I went to see him as St. Jimmy on Broadway. 😂 It's secured inside a fingernail sized bit of clear packing tape. Definitely a weird thing for someone to find with no context.

I kept a fake needle from the American Idiot show in London that I went to 😂 I don’t know where it is now but hopefully my mum would realise it wasn’t real if she found it 😑

i also have a few empty champagne bottles on my shelf because my favourite celeb bought a group of us some to thank us for our support. He’s done it a few times so I look like an alcoholic keeping those 😂

Imagine paying a couple hundred to a thousand dollars for a piece of broken wood and metal :lol: It's a nice idea and a sweet sentiment, but imo y'all would be out of your minds if you actually followed through with this :lol:
