Cash reward on offer after Crowle theft of rare Stratocaster guitar
OWNERS of a rare guitar stolen by thieves have put up a £100 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
The Fender Squier Stratocaster electric guitar was stolen from a house on Double Rivers in Crowle along with another guitar.
It has a solid body, some chipping to the paint work around edges and a rosewood fret board. Ealand resident Steve Brown said: "The stolen guitar belongs to my musical partner, along with a hand-made electric guitar – a Gibson Melody maker – of only personal sentimental value.
"The main distinguishing feature of the rare guitar is on the top of it – the name Fender is in large letters with "squier" in smaller letters. It was only made like this in 1982.
