Kept this guitar at the base of my bed on stand constantly (when not in use). Fort Collins, Colorado. Was gone for 2 days and returned home to find it missing.

My parents bought this for me when I was 9 and I have used this in my bands until it got stolen (I'm 21 now). I am crushed.

Gitane D-500, Gitane D-500
Serial number: 2731

This guitar was stolen seven years ago in Birmingham, England, from my van... I slept at a friend's place with the van parked outside on the street. The b*****d broke a window and got into the back and left with only the guitar...
The incident was logged with the police at the time, but not much has come of that obviously.
The reason why I am now trying to locate the guitar is that I found a photo (from a trip to the south of France) that shows the serial number, which I couldn't remember at the time... (a lesson learnt there about keeping records...)

This is a black Schecter Diamond Series A5X Celloblaster FIVE string (not a bass!) guitar that was stolen from me from my house in Larned, Kansas around 11-11-2013. Nothing else was taken thankfully, but wish he took my plain Jane Ibanez 7 string instead.

Guitar was last seen being attempted to get pawned/sold at Bob's Pawn Shop in Dodge City, KS for $300. The pawn shop wasn't willing to buy it unfortunately. I do have a police report/investigation with the Larned PD as well as proof of purchase from PayPal and eBay. I am offering a $100 NO QUESTIONS reward for this guitar back. I spent 12 years scouring eBay and the internet for one that I didn't get outbid on as well as having the money for it.

Siggery Custom Heresy, My First Custom :(
Serial number: None that i knew of.

I had sent this back to Marty Siggery to have some minor work done on the nut and used Parcelforce 48hr service to send it. This was during december of 2012.
At some point AFTER it was taken to be delivered to Marty it somehow went missing, despite it only having to go from the van to martys door and back in the van. Somehow it went missing during that space of time and never made it back to the depot???

Despite me having printed proof of this parcel force are trying to claim that it isn't there fault and they won't pay out. Cue ongoing battle!

Rickenbacker 660, Red Ricky
Serial number: 0946453

Stolen on 6th May 2011. An Ebay Scam. I handed the guitar over in person after receiving what I thought was a legitimate paypal payment. Shortly afterwards it transpired that the person I handed the guitar to had hacked in someone's ebay account and also into someone else's paypal account. Paypal removed the funds from me to pay back the guy whose paypal had been used, so I was then out of pocket by ?1,700, the sum I sold the guitar for.
