Sonic Youth man Thurston Moore had his 1960 Fender Jazzmaster stolen on Wednesday (December 12).

The incident occurred around midnight at a Philadelphia hotel, reports a message on Sonic Youth's website.

The message reads: "Thurston Moore had his 1966 (circa) Fender Jazzmaster stolen from the Best Western in Philadelphia (501 N 22nd St) last night 12-12-12 around 12 midnight. It's Thurston's iconic Sonic Youth black Jazzmaster with all the stickers on its body. Here's a couple of photos. A police report has been filed. Please email us if anyone tries to sell this relic to your store, it would be appreciated. Please forward to other guitar stores you may know in the area. Thanks, Thurston"

An additional message adds: "It has a Mastery Bridge, and the pickguard has been changed so stickers might be different." The guitar is pictured below.

If past experience is anything to go by, Moore may find he has a long wait to get it back. His white Fender Jazzmaster, stolen from a van in 1999, was returned to him earlier this year, 13 years since it went missing.
