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

Yea, Gibsons are just expensive,and that cheap Blue (sure is not Fender) goes great through those expensive guitars!

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!

Not much, since that's not ALL of their guitars!

Does anybody have a picture of Mike's bass that he used during the "Basket Case" on Letterman? I know it's Kramer but i can't recall the model!

/> What about his Gretsch guitars? I saw one in Troublemaker, one Hollowbody, i don't know a lot about that guitar!

In an interview with Guitar World (or Player? I don't remember exactly) 2012 he said he used a Brian Setzer Signature Hot Rod and a 60s Double Anniversary on the Trilogy. I will post the link as soon as I get to a computer.

I like his black junior the most. I love the way the paint has worn off. It definitely shows the way he plays his guitars.

Blue is surely his favorite.

I had a Les Paul Junior myself, and that really put me off them for life :P

I really love his modded Gretsch 6120.
