It was late when a friend, I had known years, turned up a bit worse for drinking. We talked until late, early hours in the morning. I fell asleep in my chair listening to his problems and trying to help him with advice and sympathy. When I was woken up by my housemate the next morning 2 hours later, as she was going to school, where she teaches, she pointed out my guitar was gone. I was awake until around 4 am and my housemate got up at 6.15. No one else had been in the house but he denied taking it. When the police finally caught up with him, some weeks later, he told the police lady there had been a party, and that he left whilst others were still here. It wasn’t the most expensive Gibson but played and sounded better than some $10,000 range I had tried in shops. I had bought it with money left when my father died and was a real close link to the best guy I’ve ever known. I was talking to someone about playing guitars months later and they mentioned a friend had just bought a nice gold coloured Gibson, for next to nothing, from the same cruel, desperate guy I had been trying to help. I couldn’t hide my shock and could find out no more about who or where. I still feel sick, sad and angry everytime I think about my dad, my guitar and so called friend not to forget the person who bought an, obviously stolen, guitar for less than I would have lent or maybe even given to the thief if in need.
