So, here we go. I called it "BJA's Jason's, Mike's guitars", 'cause they aren't making WHOLE Green Day. We need Tre! However, let's start this topic!

I saw them having a fuckload of guitars. Post pictures, or add more guitars. You can post some facts, 'bout their guitars,  or something like that, and...so on...

In premier guitar interview, his guitar technician told that this was repainted. Now, which one is that?

I think it's the classic white. You can see the neck is black on the front and not brown like the others ;)

What about blue? He has an original one until now, or he changes the guitar?

I'm pretty sure it's just one of his ebony signature models. You can see the back of the neck is actually black with his signature at the top. All they've done is repainted, replaced the H90 pick up with a seymour duncan antiquity pick up and replaced the pick guard and knobs.

A H90 is the pick up on his signature models, not the name of his classic white guitar.

just reminding you that you don't play, mister :P

I like the sound of Blue, it's so straight forward. Now a days the band always plays with a mountain of different instruments, and there is nothing wrong with that, I just wish that once in a while they did something simple (like 1 set of instruments each instead of 1 per song) like they did before they became loaded.

Doesn't get much more straightforward than LP Juniors. Blue is pretty great, though

I know Jason played a Danelectro model on the trilogy and has it with him this tour, but he has yet to use it. The only footage I can find of him playing it is the video of Lazy Bones at 1-2-3-4 Go.

He uses it for Stray Heart as well (or at least he did for the SXSW performance)

It isn't whitie because this one's bridge is not angled as much as whitie's was, and it is much closer to the pickup. It is either a sunburst repaint or ebony repainted. I Call it

SPARKLE JUNIOR


DAT Gibson es-137....Signature NOW

I know Billie has the original Blue with him for this tour, his ebony Les Paul Jr. (Which used to have the class of 13 sticker and some other ones i think), his sparkle Les Paul Jr., his new double cutaway signature Les Paul Jr. (repaired from I Heart Radio), his backup Telecaster that he switches out with Blue, that new Rickenbacker he's been playing for X-Kid and Brutal Love, and I saw him use the big white Gibson hollowbody at the Pomona show for Kill the DJ. I think that about does it for Billie...I might be missing one or two.

 

Now Jason has his beautiful red double cutaway Les Paul Special, his red ES-335, his sunburst ES-335, his sunburst Les Paul, his black Les Paul tuned down for the old songs, and that Danelectro guitar for Kill the DJ and Stray Heart. 

 

Mike...I have no idea. Not a bass player;) haha...but I know he has a signature model or two with him, and then that one bass, Ruby Mae. I think they're all precision basses though. I wonder what happened to that Gibson Grabber bass he had? I know the original one he used in the earlier 90s during Dookie and Insomniac was broken, but he showed up with a new one at some point on the 21CB tour, I think he only used it for one show...anybody know what's up with that?

I believe that Mike just doesn't want to play it! After he got precision bass, he just wants to forget about G-3's at all!
