New Jazzmaster used as a replacement after the gear theft in July 1999. At some point after the 2000 tour, it was converted to a "Jazzblaster" w/ Tele Deluxe pickups + a custom pickguard omitting the tone knob. One of Lee's main guitars in the 21st century!
Curious tunings written all over body: A#A#A#FA#A#?? CGCDF#B (FMC tuning)?! BbBbF#BbF#C# - "PIPES"?!? DAFAAD "BOAC"?!? I'm guessing BOAC stands for "Bang on a Can" so these are probably tunings used for non-SY projects, if you can identify the others, please write!
Orange "coral" body
2 soapbars originally, now 2 Tele Deluxe pickups
1 toggle switch
2 knobs originally, then tone removed
Has cheat sheets for Rather Ripped tunes taped to body
Used for Sugar Kane at some point?
