Ok what was the first guitar ever played by Jimmy Page? He was 13 at the time.


i don't remember the name of it but it was a copy of an ES guitar that someone brought back from a trip i think. he took it school and had a kid show him how to tune it and then became completely obsessed. then he bought a "real" electric guitar as he called it. it was a british copy of a strat i think


The guitar was called a Grazioso (note the zoso resemblance) and I think i read it was a Strat copy but i may be incorrect in that part. I know it was a Grazioso.


the grazioso was the second guitar. i read in the book Hammer of the Gods that the very very first guitar he had was the ES copy. then he bought the Grazioso


Well I read that other thing in another book...

Thats a lot of quotes, someone quote me next :lol:.

And Buddy and Roy stop in regularly to say "Hi y'all" - and Duane Allman was spotted in there last week, eating a peach.....

1)What was Billie-Joe Armstrong's first guitar? Fernandes Stratocaster copy
2)What did he call it? Blue
3)Who Gave it to him? his father
4)What was Green Day Called before they made 1039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours? Sweet Children
5)What is the song Wake Me Up When Septemeber Ends about? Billie Joe Armstrong has confirmed to the mass public that the song was written as a memorial anthem about his father, a jazz musician and minor league baseball catcher, who died of lung cancer when Billie Joe was only ten years old.
6)How long did it take Green Day to record 1039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours?
(a)10 Mins. 39 Secs.
(b)10 Hours 39 Mins.
(c)1 Day
(d) 2 Days
It is a compilation of old material, so "record" is probably the wrong term here. They actually compiled the album over a period of 5 days.
I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

Like I wrote, they compiled it over a period of 5 days, from 29 December 1989 – 2 January 1990, it's possible that they only worked on it for 2 of those days.
