All right all you Sonic Youth fans, here’s your chance to acquire a made in Mexico Fender Jazzmaster Thurston Moore Signature Electric Guitar for your very own.
Seller says she’s from 2009 and in good condition with some minor dings front and back and a “good sized” ding on the lower bottom bout. These things happen.
I love her transparent forest green satin lacquer finish; very distinctive and earthy. Seller says she’s got an Alder body and a Maple neck with C-shaped profile and a Rosewood fretboard. Sounds pretty sweet to me.
I’m also drawn to her dark headstock with Thurston Moore’s signature imprinted on the back.
The electronics on this model are worth noting. Seller says the Jazzmaster-style humbucking bridge pickup is “hot sounding with good pickup” while the Seymour Duncan Antiquity II single coil serves up a crisp vintage tone. Add that all together and you have all kinds of sonic possibilities.
I’ll also call out the tremolo bar which just looks ready to bend some notes to Valhalla and back.
And she comes with her original hardshell case, which is better than a sharp stick in the eye.
