Gibson Les Paul Deluxe 1969 Goldtop, Goldtop
Serial number: None entered

Gibson Les Paul Deluxe 1969 Goldtop with mini-humbuckers. Stolen from our rehearsal space the Sound Mill recording studio in Bloomington, IN in the Summer of 1994. I know it's a long shot but hoping to track it down to buy it back.

I loved this Les Paul, now it's been 25 years, and it's the longest of long shots, but I'd like to track it down and buy it back. I don't have the serial number but I'm trying to get it now.

I bought it from Manny's Music in 1990. While I was on tour with The Lemonheads in the summer of 1994, I stupidly left some of my gear stored in my band Antenna's leased rehearsal space at a now-defunct Bloomington, Indiana, recording studio called The Sound Mill. The story at the time was that a studio employee named Jacques made off with a bunch of studio gear, including this guitar, and crossed the border to his native Quebec and, presumably, sold all of the gear. By the time I got back from tour, the theft had occurred several weeks prior. There aren't many of these guitars, so my wife's theory is that maybe there's a way to narrow down the sales of this model that occurred within that time period. Difficult detective work, to be sure. But who knows?

There were some minor cracks in the finish and some typical wear and tear on the body of the instrument. It had a sparkly gold star sticker on the pick guard and a Mercury Rev sticker on the body of the guitar behind the bridge at the time it was stolen (although probably removed by whoever stole the guitar). You can message me on Facebook or reply here if you have any ideas about how to track it down. I'm sure it's been sold a time or two since then, but I'll buy it again. Thanks, John Strohm

Ibanez JEM, Greenie
Serial number: None entered

I know this is a extreme long shot, this guitar was stolen from me on November 10, 1995 and there were no forums or place besides the police department to report this until now. It was stolen from Toad's Place in New Haven, CT while my Band Trial Mile was opening for Kansas. Out of any guitar that I had that night this one is not replaceable due to its rarity and unique swirl.
