Someone I don't know personally has had a TV LP Special stolen near Baton Rouge, LA. I know J45 is from around there, and I used to live there.

Anyway, it is a family instrument owned by the person's father.

Never thought I would ever have to deal with something like this. But Sunday (07/18/2010) a climate controlled facility was broken into (21 units total) and I had some very expensive and sentimental gear stolen. I'm passing this along to everybody I know in the hopes that it may help. Please pass it along to anybody who can help.

This happened in Walker, Louisiana. Near Baton Rouge/Denham Springs area and Hammond, Louisiana. Please keep your eyes and ears open.

I'm sure I don't have to say which of these guitars is the most important to me.
