Lost and Stolen Guitars

As a service to all guitarists you may register lost and stolen guitars on this site. A picture if supplied will be published only if it is the original instrument and not just a model picture.

If you are buying a guitar you can check to see if it is here but remember if its not here it doesn't mean its not stolen and nothing  should be implied by the fact that a particular guitar is not on this page.

There is no charge for this register for individuals or commercial operations.

Fender Lead II stolen Sunday 8/8/09, at Gosford NSW  Australia


Recently we had a shipment of Taylor acoustic guitars arrive into our
warehouse with one instrument missing, a model known as an 810, which
retails for $5499. It has been confirmed that this guitar was despatched
from the USA, so we can only conclude that it has been stolen somewhere
between the wharves and us.
If anyone shows up in your stores trying to sell this instrument it would
be  much appreciated if you could get in touch with us.
Its serial number is:
2002 1122135
The guitar will probably be in a brown case.
Best Regards
