Sweetwater and Gibson Guitars have reported a theft of a limited edition Adam Jones guitar, believed to be stolen in the back of a delivery truck at the Flying J Travel Center in Whiteland, IN.
Phil Rich said: “Somehow from a truck loaded with guitars, this ONE pallet was ripped off and stolen at a truck stop. “With a total value of nearly $ 95,000 for guitars, we feel this person knows exactly what to look for and when.”
“These guitars are the dream guitars of 13 Gibson and Adam Jones fans who patiently waited for them to arrive,” said Gibson’s Cesar Gueikian. “We’ve decided to publish the serial numbers of the 13 stolen instruments and are calling on all Gibson fans to keep an eye on them and let us know if they show up. Our fans should ask any third-party seller for the serial number before buying to make sure they haven̵7;t been sold one of the stolen pianos.
Gibson’s first guitars from the Tool riff Lord were limited to 79 copies of Jones’s signature Les Paul Custom, used by professional lumbermen’s perennial wood. Another 179 Les Paul Customs were made, including exclusive silk screen artwork on the back of the hat, co-created by Jones. Along with Joyce Su, the guitarist Tool also designed custom cardboard guitar cases that come with each ax.
Gibson and Sweetwater have released the serial numbers of each stolen instrument, as you can see in the image below. Please contact your local authority if you encounter any harps.
Adam Jones has released a new song, “The Witness”, to commemorate his signature guitars, with the support of musical instruments from Tool band friends Justin Chancellor and Danny Carey.
