In an interview with Exclaim! Magazine, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo discuss their latest album The Eternal, the move from Geffen to Matador Records, touring and what’s on the horizon.
In one of his answers, Ranaldo segues into their new Fender signature models, saying “Thurston and I also have signature model Jazzmasters issued by Fender, which is pretty exciting after all the years that we’ve been Fender guitar players, to have models pretty much designed exactly to each of our specs. That’s something we’re pretty psyched about and we’ve designed some special artist sticker sheets to go along with them and a fanzine where we interviewed members of our crew about the development of our guitar technology. So, it’s a pretty big deal and Fender’s been super cool about working with us on that.”
