Used by Thurston: 1985

  • 1985 -- F#F#F#F#EB (Brave Men Run, Death Valley '69, World Looks Red)


  • I've only ever seen Thurston use this at the 10/10/85 Bremen show. It seemed to replace the blue Jazzmaster for the F# songs -- possibly because they'd moved "Brave Men"/"Death Valley" into the encore and it was easier to use a different guitar than try to tune the blue Jazz after the drumstick abuse it received during "I Love Her All The Time" and "Ghost Bitch" in the main set.
  • It appears to be very similar to a Teisco ET-220.
  • Sunburst finish
  • 2 silver single coils
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • Black (red?) pickguard
  • 2 knobs
