  • 1987 -- F#F#F#F#EB (Pipeline, Death Valley '69) - LEE
  • 1988 -- ACCGG#C? (Silver Rocket) - THURSTON


  • Used briefly by Lee in '87, this guitar appeared again, this time played by Thurston, in the "Dirty Boots" video. It can also be seen on the back cover of "Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star". If you watch the clips from the 11/03/88 Toronto show here you can see Thurston is using this guitar, presumably for "Silver Rocket"?
