hi,
i'm looking for infomation on Tim Armstrong's (Rancid/Op Ivy/Transplants) gear. As far as I know he uses a Marshall Head/Cab and a variety of semi acoustic guitars. i'm more interested in his guitars - specially his matt black one.
cheers,
Hooligan

I think I saw a picture of him playing a generic Epiphone ES-355 model, but I could be wrong.

Tim definately uses teh Epiphone 335s. He says that they're easy to break. :) His black one has a different bridge...one of the older floating types. Perhaps its a Casino or Rivera?

Lars is a Les Paul kind of guy. Loves his customs. (from what I remember).

Tim's the singer guy right? I usually see him with a single-pickup 335-type guitar (one pickup near bridge)
