    Hey everyone! am posting this in hopes whoever took this will grow a conscience and return it.

    Yesterday morning, someone broke into the Music Academy here in Brantford and took my friends 1992 Gibson Nighthawk. On top of the dollar value, this guitar has sentimental value.

    We want it back. It's bad enough that there will be costs to repair damage, but replacing this guitar is something that really can't be done. Whoever took it - here's you chance to be a bit less of a scumbag.

    Please, share and cross post this. Anyone with any information, please contact the Brantford Police or the The Music Academy at [email protected] or 519-771-1270.

    I doubt that someone who goes to the effort of breaking into someplace will suddenly get a conscience, but I hope your friend gets a break and the thieving scumbag gets caught. There's been some good luck stories out there lately due to the use of social media, lets hope this is one of those times

    I discovered my bandmate's uncle's stolen MIJ Strat on Kijiji the other day.

    I trust the instrument was returned to the rightful owner then? Did the thief get nabbed?

    How did you handle this? Call the cops & owner? You just don't want them to disappear completely.

    I've yet to hear back. Last I heard they were contacting the seller to arrange meeting up to "purchase" the amp. They are very certain it is the guitar in question. It's an uncommon colored MIJ Fender Strat from the early 80s. And only located an hour or two from where it was stolen

    Keep in mind that the person who has it might be completely innocent. They could have bought it or traded for it not knowing that it was stolen. If that is the case then this person, who is completely innocent of any wrongdoing, could be getting screwed over.

    Yes, that would suck to be in his shoes. Another reason to not buy something if you suspect it could be hot, or the seller gives you a dirty vibe...could be screwing yourself, or worse
