About the original Billie Joe Strat


Billie Joe Armstrong was born on  February 17, 1972 in Oakland, California. He wrote his first song called “Look for Love” at the age of five, and formed his first band with Mike Dirnt named Sweet Children at fifteen.  Initially both Mike and him played guitars, with John Kiffmeyer on drums and Sean Hughes on the bass.
The guitar originally had the Bill Lawrence Humbucking Pickup in the bridge position, but it was replaced with a white Seymour Duncan JB model after it was damaged at Woodstock ’94. What happened after is that Billie most likely switched the pickup to a black Duncan JB SH-4.




Billie Joe Strat was his first electric guitar. He got it as a present for his 11th birthday from his mother who bought is from George Cole (“Beatnik Beatch”). He is a great man.George was Billie’s guitar teachers for many years,  who explained his experience with George in an interview in 1995: “I never really learned how to read music; he just taught me how to put my hands on the thing.”The guitar previously belonged to David Margen who played with Santana.
