    • Stolen Alert - Hollister, CA - Gibson Les Paul '54 Custom Shop RI Black With Lollar P-90s

      So some of ya have heard. My Black Gibson Les Paul Custom 1954 reissue was stolen out of my truck this last week in Hollister Ca. I have done over 1500 shows with that guitar and tons of recordings. Practiced for hours and hours on that beauty. My very favorite instrument ... If anybody hears anything I would greatly appreciate it.

      Pickups have been replaced with Lollar P-90's, neck pickup has square pole pieces. Neck has been re-fretted with jumbo frets, making the binding not match. Heavy belt buckle scratching on back.

      • Stolen Alert - Cayce, SC - Tour Van, Trailer, Instruments, PA

        Larry and His Flask's Van, Tour Trailer and ALL INSTRUMENTS STOLEN

        Our van (Oregon license plate: 146 FRN, white 2010 Ford Econoline 350 w/tinted windows) and trailer (white 18’ double axle) were stolen from outside our hotel room last night in Cayce, South Carolina. We are stranded here in Cayce now and are figuring out how to proceed. Unfortunately we will have to miss the show tonight in Charlotte NC with Foxy Shazam but we want to carry on with the rest of this tour if at all possible. If anyone in the North Carolina or South Carolina area has a van we can borrow and return to you after this tour ends in Ohio on June 28th, we would be more grateful than you can possibly imagine.

        And if anyone wants to DONATE any money in any amount towards helping us buy a van/trailer, you can do so via PayPal at larryandhisflask@gmail.com. Needless to say, we are deeply and humbly grateful for any help in any manner than anyone out there can provide. Thank you all so much for always supporting The Flask…we hope and pray we can get through this horrible situation and carry on.

        If any friends or fans or other kind souls can possibly let us BORROW any gear (ESPECIALLY a banjo, an upright bass and a trombone) in each city for the rest of the tour, we would be incredibly grateful…this is the only way we can continue on this tour and we want to carry on for sure. If you can help in any way, please email us at larryandhisflask@gmail.com. You can see our upcoming shows with Foxy listed under the “EVENTS” tab here on our Facebook page, under our main photo.

        • Stolen Alert - Winston-Salem, NC - Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion, Taylor 814ce LTD. Cocobolo back and sides

          My Guitar is known in my circle of musician friends as "HOWARD" he's a heavy old chunk of wood but plays as good as any guitar you could imagine. Heck over the years I have worn the finish off the backside of the entire length of the bottom of the neck. I recently installed a new set of alnico 5 pickups, you want to talk about a sweet scream, oh yeah. Any way this guitar along with my trusted Taylor feels like losing two loved ones at the same time, almost unbearable and hard to take.

          While the Taylor is replaceable ($ gulp $), my HOWARD is not. While not a super high dollar old guitar, a 1980 Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion certainly is a rarity that will reveal himself every time the case is opened. You just don't see many of them because they are embraced by their owners.

          This owner wants his HOWARD back.
          Thanks Bobby Kiger.

          During the early morning the 2nd of May, 2014 an individual or individuals stole 2 guitars from my home in the Rural Hall NC (Winston-Salem) area...

          1. 1980 Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion (semi hollow body electric)
          2. 2002 Taylor 814ce LTD. Cocobolo back and sides with flame maple binding, fishman electronics.

          I will make it worth while for...
          1. For safe return of guitars
          2. For the arrest and conviction of said person or persons.

          Musicians and concerned individuals, PLEASE share this for me. I want my guitars back, especially the Gibson. I Have proof of ownership. Please contact me or

          • Another Black Beauty stolen.

            I have had this guitar for forty years and played it in my band back in the early ’80′s. And until its theft played for pleasure while working on a collection of songs for a possible album.

            Thanks for your help trying to get her back,
            Maxx

            This guitar was stolen along with the hard case Sunday 18 March 2012 from my office on Powell Drive here in Raleigh near fairgrounds. Help to recover this instrument. Offering cash reward for its return. No questions asked.

              • Stolen Alert - Lexington, SC - Michael Kelly Hybrid and Gibson ES-339

                Two of my guitars were stolen last night from
                my car in front of Wings and Ale of Lexington SC.
                Please keep an eye out for a red ES-339 and a
                Michael Kelly Hybrid Special (Spalted). They're
                probably in a big double-case full of other
                valuable stuff, and being carried by a 24 carat
                bastard.

                Please contact the City of Lexington SC police
                department with info. They are working on the
                case now.

                Thanks, and have a tremendous day!

                • Stolen Bass Rig Gear Report
                  Bi-amped SWR Working Man’s One-Sixty and Carvin F-300 power amp in a SKG 6 space road case. Last known in the possession of Cameron Wilson of Edmond, Oklahoma and proprietor of camwil26jf2 ebay store http://www.ebay.com/usr/camwil26jf2
                  .

                  SWR Working Man’s One-Sixty SN 0994
                  Carvin 300 SN 115395

                  Both amps were in pristine condition functionally and cosmetically (see pics)
                  I don’t recall the model of the SKG road case or recall if it had a serial number but I suspect all three were separated before being sold. I'm only seeking the return of the two amps.

                  FWIW I would not recommend buying from him as based on my experience Cameron is known to have sold my stolen gear locally at least.

                        • Stolen Alert – Davenport, IA – MARTIN DCME (2001) Serial# 818479

                          My grandmother gave me this guitar shortly before she passed away. Very important to me. Stolen on New Years Eve (01-01-2015) from a gig at the Renwick Mansion in Davenport Iowa.

                          MARTIN DCME (2001)

                          Some identifying marks: it has a small crack from the bridge to the frame, a bunch of little indentations above the soundhole (from pick smacking), some slight warping and wear around and above the soundhole (black feedback buster was in it), a few tiny blood stains under the strings near the bridge and in the soundhole.

                          It lived in a Martin 640 Deluxe Hardshell Molded Case with a yellow “Orangadang” sticker on it.
                          In the case was a green and blue design “Jamz”strap with black leather ends and a gold Buddha pin, gold Kayser capo, planet waves black rubber feedback buster, planet waves 10ft cable 90 end with mute, 3-4 packs of strings (martin/D’addario exp), a number of orange Tortex picks and old black-handled wire cutters (which were my grandfathers).

                            Musician Nick Gibson recently had his tour trailer with all gear inside stolen from outside of his home.

                            A lot of the gear has been modified, so hopefully that will help.

                            Vehicle:

                            • Seeing that it's much easier to get back your gear if you know where it is, we developed a new phone app - GPSRoadie.

                              The app uses smartphone's GPS and cellular tech to create a virtual fence around the phone. Put the phone in an instrument case, tour van or tour trailer and that is now protected. If it's stolen, location alerts are sent every 60 seconds to people you choose.

                              The app also broadcasts stolen alerts, hopefully helping more people get back their stolen gear.

                              On the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...adie.GPSRoadie
