Thurston Moore's guitar stolen

Thurston Moore has said that his Fender Jazzmaster guitar was stolen from the bar of the Best Western hotel in Philadelphia on 12 December at around midnight. A Facebook post on the Sonic Youth page states that a police report has been filed, and asks that anyone approached with the guitar for sale contacts him. The black 1966 Fender is estimated to be worth around $20,000, but it should be easy to spot, plastered as it is in stickers.
