Tom Petty Offers $7,500 Reward for 5 Stolen Guitars
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers recently had five guitars stolen from them, and they're offering a reward in return for any information regarding their whereabouts.
A post on the band's official website states five of their guitars were stolen from a soundstage in Culver City, California, where they've been rehearsing for their U.S. tour, which launches this week.
The guitars (pictures below) include Petty's 1967 12-string blonde Rickenbacker 360 and his 1965 Gibson SGTV Junior, as well as instruments belonging to bassist Ron Blair, rhythm guitar player Scott Thurston, and lead guitarist Mike Campbell.
They said they would pay a $7,500 reward "with no questions asked to anyone with information leading to the recovery of the guitars."
If you find these guitars or have any information that may lead to their recovery, you can contact Tom and his band by sending an e-mail to StolenGuitars@TomPetty.com.
