    STOLEN GUITAR ALERT

    So on my way from NJ to my apt in Del yesterday, I stopped by Philly to see a friend for a little while. I parked my car on a normal street in a decent area. Very well lit, lots of other cars parked, Apartments and condos in the area.


    I come back a few hours later and my car is gone. Inside the trunk was my beloved 1990 Custom 24, my Mesa Mark IV amp, laptop, clothes, etc.



    I am trying to sort everything out now, but I am seriously screwed right now. My car is an older one, I suppose it was easier to break into, but all my stuff was in the trunk, nothing would draw anyone to it. Locked all the doors, etc.


    Argh I contemplated bringing the guitar inside when I parked, but didnt. Why o why??!!?!


    Anyways, I will attached some photos, and the Serial Number is: 0 9768. It has dings all over, does not have the truss rod cover or trem backplate on. Has black graphite PRS saddles, a pretty good chip on the headstock tip.









    Also the 5 way knob is replaced with a knurled gold knob.



    If anyone sees this pop up, please contact me!! Andre.aklian@gmail.com

    Hoping for a quick resolution to this. I know i'd be a wreck. Not only for the cool guitar but for the mesa too!

    Hope the bastid gets what's coming to him!!

    Is there any chance you parked in a zone and it was towed? You should be able to find it and your gear would still be there. Hoping for the best for you

    I had the same thought. Tow trucks and storage lots are notorious for putting the wrong info on their database so you have a bunch of storage fees by the time you find your car.

    I wouldn't even call - I'd go walk the tow lots myself.

    Re: STOLEN GUITAR ALERT

    Yea, filed a report and everything. Gonna see if my renters insurance covers lost items. Beyond that I am not sure what else I can do. Not sure how to investigate if there was a camera in the area that may have spotted something...

    I live in Philly and have been checking Craigslist and Ebay almost daily the past few weeks for PRS guitars. Have not seen anything but will keep my eyes open for this.

    I never posted it but as soon as you posted this I notified a friend in the Cherry Hill (NJ) Guitar Center who had put the word/photo out to his co-workers as well as people close to Philly.
