Thurston Moore’s 1966 Fender Jazzmaster — which he frequently played as a member of Sonic Youth — was stolen from a Best Western hotel in Philadelphia last night (via BrooklynVegan). Per the photograph above, the guitar is black and covered in stickers.

Moore asks local music store owners to be on the lookout for the guitar, and to forward the info to other store owners in the area.

In 2009, Moore was honored with his very own line of Fender Jazzmasters.

Below, you can watch footage of Moore playing the guitar during a concert at the Rock En Seine Festival in Paris.
