"The J-180 is a fantastic live guitar. You know people say that the extra pick guard kind of dampens the tone and so forth, but I think for live it's great. And also I think the Everly Brother's dad designed the bridge with the strings, which barely break over that bridge. That means you never have to worry about strings breaking. It's a very nice guitar," says Billie Joe Armstrong's guitar tech, Hans, about the Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong J-180 Acoustic Guitar, used during live Green Day performances. J-180 is heavily used for live performances, especially 21st Century Breakdown tour. Billie Joe used this guitar to play ["Macy's Day Parade"](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKNMIm1aiZk), ["Redundant"](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HTq5t92f48), ["Words I Might Have Ate, Good Riddance and Give Me Novacaine"](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YX6o_TVBkIY), and other stuff.more
