That should tell you 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.

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

 

I really love his modded Gretsch 6120.

Thank you! 

You're welcome, but I'm still doubting is that Fender's ibrato or Bigsby's.

It looks a lot like a Bigsby to me. It's hard to tell though, if the video was higher quality it'd be easier. I know Bigsby ones are usually huge, but I think I can see their logo on it.

I mean, why would you need vibrato for song like "Hitchin' A Ride".

For that one chord at the end :lol: If he used it for more songs it'd make sense, especially Welcome To Paradise, but I've no idea what songs he did use it for!

Or Going to Pasalaqua. What did he do to make it like that at the beginning?


Rumours say this is Frankenstrat. Since there is no pictures of Frankenstrat, I would say this is the one, because it has different parts, but not from Fender, as Billie said. I mean, it has EMG pickups.

 

...and this Gibson Es-335. He used black one on MTV world tour, but I didn't see him used sunburst.
