    Junior Brown announced via Twitter, etc. that his guit-steel was stolen, and he is seeking help from the public for its safe return. Also stolen was his wife's acoustic guitar.

    I am sure there are hundreds of lap steel Telecaster hybrids out there, good luck pawning that one.

    Thieves suck.

    Junior Brown does not.

    Cheers,

    My guess is the thief just grabbed the instrument cases and took off without looking into each case...or did look and had no idea what it was but figured that it was valuable.

    That stinks.

    It's surprising he doesn't have more for backups or a signature model somewhere. Hopefully Fender, or someone, steps up and making him a few spares.

    I think Big Red is the backup. He seems to play his original butterscotch one most of the time.

    Bolo here means BOLOgnaise, like spaghettis bolognaise.

    I hope Junior can get his guitar back. Like he said, the worst thing which could happen is the thieves noticing that guitar is very rare, and they get rid of it since they won t be able to sell it.

    That Martin would be a big loss. It's a pity you cant offer a large reward for the perps kneecaps along with the safe return of the guitars.
    A bounty type of arrangement seems more appropriate.
