Sonic Youth Unveils Signature Fender Guitars

Sonic Youth

In the spirit of capitalism, the success of an artist is sometimes followed by some sort of product endorsement. The noisy experimentalists of Sonic Youth were the last people we'd expect to see this from, but fear not; they're not hocking any awful cologne or overpriced sneaks.

Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore, guitarists and founders of the iconic crew, are known for paring down their guitars to the bare necessities to find that volatile Sonic Youth sound. Enter Fender, who has swooped in and turned the pared-down instruments into the totally epic-sounding Fender Sonic Jazzblaster (from Ranaldo) and Jazzmaster (from Moore).
