Stolen Guitar Notices

  • Sept 26th, 2007 - there is now a web site specifically for stolen musical instruments - Screaming Stone

  • April 16, 2005 - Baltimore, Ohio

Terry Efaw reported that his Peavey Nashville 400 steel guitar amplifier was stolen from (of places) Fairfield United Christian Rt.203 Baltimore, OH on Sat.4/16.

  • June 16th, 2004 - Columbus. Ohio

    Jim Volk reports the following stolen from him:

    Large "Odysey" road case containing :
    DBX 266XL Compressor/Gate
    DBX 120A Subharmonic Synthesizer
    Behringer Eurorack MX2004A Mixing Board
    Lexicon MPX 110 Effects Processer
    QSC Power Amplifier Model #RMX850 or close to it , not sure.

    2 Eastern Acoustic Works Cabinets/ 3 way/Black/ Metal Grilled Model / #PM315.  These cabinets are pretty road weary, one of the original RCF 15's were replaced by a new Eminence Speaker Art "Tube Pac" Preamp/Compressor Crude pedal Board with the following pedals Velcroed to it :
    Boss Harmonizer
    Boss CS3 Compression Sustainer
    Ibenez Flanger (old yellow one)
    Tech 21 Sans Amp (old original one)
    Boss RC 20 Loop Station
    L. R. Baggs Paracoustic Preamp

    These pedals are very dirty and scuffed up , if removed from the pedal board
    they will have Velcro or adhesive on the bottoms.
