The idea behind TheGuitarVaults is simple, it's an online resource
where anyone and everyone will be able to help create a
comprehensive list of guitars and their serial numbers. As a user
you'll be able to create a page for your guitars where you'll be
able to include pictures and information, this will have a few
Firstly, people will be able to surf and get info on guitars
they're interested in, you'll be able to see what colours Gibson
offered the Les Paul in for '57 and then what changed in '58.
You'll be able to check out what bridge an old Gretsch should have,

The other huge use for the site is for tracking stolen guitars,
as Dweezil explains:
"Over the years, many of my friends and fellow musicians
have had guitars stolen. Some have recovered them, but many will
probably never see them again. In fact, my Dad had a guitar stolen
in the 1960's; it was a Gibson Les Pail gold top that he played
through the early days of The Mothers of Invention. Not only does
this instrument hold historic and sentimental value to my family
and the fans, but it's a pretty valueable vintage instrument in its

With TheGuitarVaults, users will be able to register their
guitars serial numbers then flag them as stolen if the worst
happens. This means that with a huge international community, the
word can get out fast and the owner has a much better chance of
getting their gear back. Most pawn stores in the UK now check items
that come in for devices like SmartWater, which alerts them to the
theft of an item, with TheGuitarVaults, shops would have the option
to check out the guitar before they buy it and check that
everything is in order, and if it's not they can easily contact the
original registered owner to find out what's happened.
Dweezil has joined the site, so why don't you and do everything
you can to protect your prized instruments.
