Sonic Youth Gets Their Guitars Back
This is too cool to believe.
I remember when this happened, and it was a devastating loss for the band (one they overcame by simply starting over with new gear, by the way). The customized guitars that Sonic Youth used were incredibly important for their sound and for the innovation they achieved. Many of these guitars were Jazzmasters, which is one of the most interesting and versatile instruments to play.
