STOLEN NATIONAL GUITAR (please read)
« Thread Started Today at 8:25am »
I have been away and returned to find an email from Eddie Martin about his treasured National guitar.

STOLEN FROM EDDIE MARTIN AT A FESTIVAL IN BELGIUM ON SATURDAY 8th AUGUST 2009

REWARD OF £100 FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO ITS RECOVERY

[image]

STOLEN NATIONAL DUOLIAN GUITAR - SERIAL NUMBER C5673

UNIQUE NATIONAL DUOLIAN GUITAR THAT WAS RE-SPRAYED & HAD HORIZONTAL BLOCK INLAYS PUT INTO THE FRETBOARD.

FITTED WITH HIGHLANDER PICKUP
BLACK HISCOX CASE
HIGHLANDER PRE-AMP
STEREO LEAD

Please keep a look-out for Eddie's treasured National guitar. It must be somewhere and it is so unusual that it is easily recognizable. Even with a re-spray the block markers on the neck could not really be disguised.

IF ANYBODY KNOWS ANYTHING OR HAS SEEN THIS GUITAR >PLEASE CONTACT ME BY LEAVING A MESSAGE ON THIS THREAD, OR BY SENDING ME A PRIVATE MESSAGE VIA THIS FORUM. EDDIE MARTIN CAN BE CONTACTED VIA HIS WEBSITES AT www.bluebloodrecords.com & www.eddiemartin.com

Anybody stupid enough to steal a unique instrument from the backstage area of a festival is probably stupid enough to try and sell it, so PLEASE KEEP AN EYE ON EBAY & ANY GUITAR STORES THAT YOU MIGHT VISIT. Also.....FORUM MEMBERS IN BELGIUM & HOLLAND....it may turn up being played in a pub or blues venue.

PLEASE LOOKOUT FOR THIS GUITAR!

Shine On
Michael

Michael, I have just read this message. I am very sorry that this has happened in Belgium. Myself and another forum member will circulate this message to everyone that we know in Belgium and that is a lot of people. Can you send me an email with an idea from which festival it was stolen from. It may well assist figuring out who to contact or where to look etc.

Michael,
I am working on it. We won't give up just yet.
We have 1 advantage, we speak all of Belgium's languages and we know many of these people personally so we won't give up hope just yet.

Thank you Al. Even if we don't get the guitar back, I know that Eddie will be very grateful for your help. How can people be so evil and so STUPID to steal a one-of-a-kind guitar.

It is a fairly good guess to assume that Eddie's guitar is in Belgium or Holland.

Best wishes,

Shine On
Michael.
