See the guitars, amps, and effects used by Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Jason White on Greenday's spring 2013 "99 Revolutions' tour in support of their three latest albums, 'Uno,' 'Dos,' and 'Tre'.'

Billie Joe's Blue
The most iconic of Billie's guitars dates back to the band's early-90s, 924-Gilman-Street days: a super-strat coined Blue. The stickered axe is a Fernandes Stratocaster copy that he got for his birthday when he was 11. Armstrong uses Blue on primarily Green Day's earlier songs like "Basket Case," "Longview," "Brain Stew," and "Hitching' a Ride," so the guitar is tuned to Eb and is strung with Ernie Ball Slinky .010 - .046 strings (the rest of Armstrong's guitars are tuned to E standard).
