    NOTES:

  • The first of several Mustangs acquired by Lee, modified w/ a humbucker between the 2 single coils. After the gear theft in July '99, Lee dug this out to use on the new "nyc ghosts" material, then replaced it with a Jazzmaster for the 2000 tour, allowing Jim to use the Mustang. Lee returned to this guitar for 'Cross the Breeze' on the Daydream Nation shows beginning in '07.
