Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore Searching For Stolen Guitar
Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore wrote on the band’s official website that he is looking for a 1960 Fender Jazzmaster guitar that was stolen on Wednesday. The guitar was stolen around midnight at a Philadelphia hotel.
He wrote: “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 your store, it would be appreciated. Please forward to other guitar stores you may know in the area. Thanks, Thurston It has a Mastery Bridge, and the pickguard has been changed so stickers might be different.“
The last time Moore’s guitar was stolen, it was his white Fender Jazzmaster in 1999, taken from a van. It was returned to him this year, thirteen years after it went missing.
