Have a random question about Green Day that you can't find answered somewhere else? Ask here and a team of highly trained and qualified specialists (note: obsessive fans) will answer. Before asking a question, I'd encourage you to search for an answer either here on the forum or on GDA. You can also browse the old Q&A topic if you wish.

39 was the age one of Billie's brothers was turning on the day of the records release but I don't remember about the "Smooth" part.

I think one of them wanted to name it Smooth and one wanted to name it 39. I don't know that we actually got an explanation of the "Smooth" part, just that the full thing came from compromise.

It's named after Billie's brother because we recorded it the day he turned 39, and he's a smooth character.

I believe it is. He's had a lot of replicas but if I remember correctly he doesn't use them anymore because he doesn't like them.

I think so because look: In Premier Guitar, when Hans showed Blue...

 

- it is heavy relic, just like for guitars that are played a lot

- you can see some stickers from earlier versions here (football helmet, Ramones logo, and small bit of Mojo's logo)

- pickguard really looks old, yellow, like 20 or more year old guitars

This is just light pink. Mine may be a light pink, but it's at least marbled.

I know it looks weird/ugly, but since I have never seen it in any GD collection, I had to buy it :)
