Gone are the days of  Billie Joe Armstrong  wailing away on a banged up, sticker-lashed guitar. The  Green Day  frontman has just been issued a new signature model from Gibson, and it's a beauty.  The red hollow-body  is made of red poplar and has lots of doodads found on the high-end guitars of the world -- which it certainly is, as it'll run your punk-rockin' self more than $3K to own.

You can buy one of Armstrong's limited-run guitars on the Gibson website... or, if you're the lucky winner of an online contest, you can have one for free, with a Billie Joe signature on it besides. Details are on the website of music retailer  zZounds.com , where you can enter until midnight on September 12.

Gibson also produces a Billie Joe Armstrong signature Les Paul Junior.
