    NOTES:

  • A J Mascis signature Jazzmaster first seen at the Marc Jacobs fashion show on February 8th, 2008 -- used by Thurston for 'Kool Thing'. Kim seems to have adopted it for the Eternal tour, and since she keeps rotating tunings it's probably been used for almost every song!

  • Purple body, purple headstock
  • Gold anodized pickguard
  • 2 soapbar pickups
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • 2 Volume, 2 Tone controls, 3-way pickup switch, 2-way circuit switch
