Another Jazzmaster, one of Thurston's primary guitars until its theft in July 1999.
The guitar was found on eBay in August 2012, painted red with a white pickguard. The serial number identified it. This is the first of Thurston's guitars to have been recovered.
It looks like Lee may have used this for 'Inhuman' on 12/29/90 -- see pic. If it's the same, this means the black humbucker was originally in the neck, then switched.
