    NOTES:

  • This guitar may have been built by Thurston's brother Gene, or at least given to him by Gene. It apparently started out with a Fender neck, but somewhere along the way it ended up with a G&L ASAT neck, presumably suffering some kind of fatal abuse during one of the many extended "Expressway" outros in the early 90s. Lee also used this for "Inhuman" at 08/21/91 Dublin (in GABDEG).
