• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Hello. Thanks for looking.
It's been a long time, but I'm still looking for my 1962 Gretsch White Penguin #42012 that was stolen from Guernsey's Auctions in NYC after their 40 Years of Rock Auction in 1995.
See my website dedicated to this one guitar for all the information:
www.gretschwhitepenguin.com
Thanks again.
Phil

Yeah what a bummer.
So the auction warehouse's insurance wouldn't cover anything?

I'll keep an eye out for it in my country (Denmark) -you never know.. :)

Hello everyone.
I finally closed the website gretschwhitepenguin.com after many years and absolutely no progress in getting my 1962 Penguin, serial number 42012. I'm very disappointed even after nearly 28 years since it was stolen and not even a single sighting or return.
If it should happen to resurface, please contact me on info@aokguitars.com
Many thanks in advance for keeping your eyes peeled.
