Thieves, Cant STAND EM.
A pallet of new Gibson Adam Jones 1979 Les Paul Custom Silverburst guitars has been stolen from a truck at the Flying J Travel Center in Whiteland, Indiana on October 30. The truck was en route to Fort Wayne, Indiana, the headquarters of Sweetwater Sound.
“Somehow out of a truck full of guitars, this ONE pallet was singled out and stolen at a truck stop,” says Sweetwater chief supply chain and merchandising officer Phil Rich. “Totaling close to $95,000 in guitars, we feel this person/s knew exactly what to look for and when.”
“These guitars were the dream guitars of 13 Gibson and Adam Jones fans, who had been patiently waiting for them to be delivered,” says Cesar Gueikian of Gibson.
Anyone with information regarding the guitars should contact detective Kenny Polley of the Whiteland Police Department at KPolley@whitelandpd.us or (317) 535-8100.
