    NOTES:

  • I had no idea, but apparently Kim was using this guitar way back in 1992! Definitely seen at November and December 1992 gigs, instead of the 'Snoopy' Les Paul for "Swimsuit Issue".
  • Shared by Kim and Jim on the Murray Street tour. Tuning altered to GDD# for Nurse tunes, Kim's first use of SY's oldest remaining tuning! "Mariah" may have been in EEBBF#F#.
