The stolen guitar...
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.Be on the lookout! Additional info: "it has a Mastery Bridge, and the pickguard has been changed so stickers might be different. it's a 1960 serial#41927." Hope you get it back Thurston.
Thurston played SPACE in Philly last night as part of a short string of dates that included Union Pool the other night and includes an upcoming show at Bowery Electric. Another shot of the guitar is below...

"There was really nothing to complain about if your expectations were correct when you got there. Verlaine did the same boring crap he has been doing for 10 years. The SY set could have been longer and contained at least SOME melody. Their set was the only disappointed of the night. Nels set was great, but only because of the pairing with Norton Wisdom. Very nice. J ripped it like always, he was never one to noodle. Dave Schools of Widespread Panic ripped it up on bass."

"wtf that review is just WRONG. It was cool and fun to see all these guys doing their Jazzmaster thing. Lee and Moore's set disappointing I don't think anyone there would agree with that. Mascis was more disappointing after setting up 3 huge stacks of amps on stage to get just an ok sound out of all that. Nels Cline nothing without the painter? come on man, get off your ass and listen." [Anonymous 2]
I asked an Edison Glass representative how the Long Island band got on this bill of guitar legends (that now also includes Lee Ranaldo). They replied, "You're the millionth person to ask. Fender loves them, so they put them on."
I have one pair of tickets for tonight's sold out show at Knitting Factory in NYC. To win....
