All of the TV Jones guitars and pickups that were displayed at the Musikmesse trade show in Franfurt, Germany were stolen after the show Saturday March 27, 2010.
When our transport company arrived to stand J40 in hall 4.0, the stand was completely empty. Many of the items are one-of-a-kind prototypes and would be easy to identify. Here is a partial list of the stolen items:
-Model 10 Prototype in tobacco sunburst w/P90 pickups
-Model 10 Prototype in natural toffee w/ T-Armond pickups
in P90 mount
-Model 10 in Ice Blue w/single bridge pickup
-Model 10 in Crimson Red w/single bridge pickup
-Model 10 in BLACK w/ 2 pickups
We are asking all of our friends to spread the word far and wide via blogs, forums, any means possible. In the hope that we can retrieve these rare stolen instruments.
