The week of July 28th, 2019 two guitars, a mandolin, several guitar effect pedals and an amp were stolen from my home. The Cherry Red Gibson ES 355 had some custom work done on the pickups. They were Dimarzios, and two new switches were installed on the classic instrument, devaluing the classic status it would otherwise enjoy. The guitar had no strings on it, and the pick guard had damage (some age appropriate wearing from “clawing” by the previous owner.) All gold hardware and a Bigsby tailpiece, the neck needed some special work on it. It was in the original Gibson case, with orange interior. It was stolen just after I had experienced an altercation with law enforcement over a different issue, so I felt it was useless to obtain a report from the police. I did give the pictures of the guitars and equipment to one officer, who never gave me a report, nor did he file it for me. This is all over with, but I have had no help from anyone on locating any of my stolen gear. Please let me know if you have any information. If it leads to a positive result, I will be most grateful.
