From the album: Timeline Photos
By Sonic Youth
Hi -- Thurston Moore had his 1966 (circa) Fender Jazzmaster stolen from the Best Western in Philadelphia (501 N 22nd St) last night 12-12-12 around 12 midnight. It's Thurston's iconic Sonic Youth black Jazzmaster with all the stickers on its body. Here's a couple of photos. A police report has been filed. Please email us if anyone tries to sell this relic to yur store, it would be appreciated. Please forward to other guitar stores you may know in the area.

Thanks,

Thurston

That is why the BEAST stays home, poor thief would lose his mind, the BEAST demands your soul. Poor Thurston. I want to find that Fender. My birthdate 1966? . Time to hit the pawns. Chewing tobacco+coffee+sunglasses.

Aside from that being the worst thing someone could do to a guitar player (I HATE thieves!) What in the hell could anyone do with that guitar? As soon as they played it or tried to sell it anywhere it would be recognized.

I hope the thief is caught and beaten within an inch of his life! (Sorry...hate thieves...)

I cannot fathom why anyone would want to steal a Sonic Youth guitar. They've all been modified, restrung & retuned over the years, that only a member of SY would want to play it.

As someone's already said, it's a VERY recognisable instrument. Hopefully it is recovered. Then again, not all of the stuff from last time has been recovered.

My thoughts exactly. It's like stealing Dimebag's original Dean from Hell. No one's going to notice it's the original?

Thurstons jazzmaster

Someone should tell J Mascis to watch his rig close.. Seems like post hardcore cats are getting their number ones ganked... Oh what a collection that would be
