Green Day has given us another short sneak peak into the studio as they work on their follow-up to 2009′s 21st Century Breakdown.
“We’re literally dealing with a new sound, and it’s fing with my head,” says singer Billie Joe Armstrong.
Whatever that new sound is, it apparently includes Gretsch.

Green Day is back in the studio recording a new album, and have even shared a quick video update. With drummer Tre Cool already in the Gretsch family, it was a bonus to see frontman Billie Joe Armstrong rocking a Gretsch axe.
Since the vid flashes so quickly, we thought we’d better check with the Green Day camp on the exact model. According to Billie Joe’s guitar tech, Hans, it’s the singer’s “’56ish (Gretsch) Anniversary.”
