STOLEN GEAR ALERT! Reward for return, no questions asked.

January 7, 2013

Today on Facebook, this call for help finding some stolen guitars owned by local musicians Erin and Jeff Nolan has been making the rounds:

Hey friends, Jeff and I have had some gear stolen from us.
Please help me watch Craigslist and various pawnshops for the following:
Jeff’s Gold Top Gibson Les Paul
My yellow Starr Tele bass (shaped like a Telecaster, EMG pickups, one of it’s kind, serial # is 001 )
My mid-’60s Univox sunburst hollowbody bass (looks like a 335).
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Contact me or Jeff Nolan.

If you stumble across any of these instruments (photos posted above) on Craigslist, at your local pawnshop or being played by someone who is not Erin or Jeff, please do the right thing and contact them via Facebook (here or here) and let them know you’ve seen their stuff.

I’m pretty sure that people who steal from artists have no souls.

UPDATE: Jeff says that he’s offering a $500 reward for the return of these guitars, no questions asked, no charges pressed. If you have them – or if you know someone who has them – you now have an easy out. So do the right thing and return the gear.

    I’m sure you’ve already done this but if not, send the list of your lost gear to all of the pawn shops and music stores in the area. My brother and his band had almost all of their gear stolen out of their van a couple of years ago and by making a list and sending it out to all the stores in the area, they were able to recover everything. Discount Music Store recognized the gear that the thief brought to them. (he was trying to pawn it all) They called the police, the thief was arrested and the gear was returned.

    Good luck guys..

    when you find them, you must kill them. slowly. beheading is preferred. allah will judge their worthless souls and send them to eternal damnation. or are they just trying to feed their families? untouchables have children too. FEED THE WORLD! think of it as a donation to the poor of central florida. :) smile, you got jacked!

  • allah is shit

    Donations are made voluntary thief’s need killed not donated too
