Help Find Chris Caffery’s Stolen Guitar
The guitar in the photos that accompany this article is owned by Chris Caffery, the guitarist of Savatage and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It has been stolen and Chris would very much like to have it back, as would any musician missing gear.
It is a Gibson Les Paul Custom, Ace Frehley model. It’s from a limited run from the late 1990s. No two are exactly alike. There are variations in the flame and woodgrain. Please look at the photos closely and if you see this guitar, PLEASE contact your local authorities. Chris has filed reports with his local, state, and federal authorities and is offering a substantial reward for its return the arrest of the thief.
Chris issued the following statement on his Facebook page on Monday, “Since an initial news feed cannot be too long I am continuing in a comment. If you see someone with a guitar like this take photos of the person and the guitar and send them to me here. If you have any information email it to me here. I know you all are very good at networking and using the Internet for just about anything. Spread the word, let your musician friends know, your local music stores, pawn shops…Let everyone know. I am not going to let up on this until the mystery is solved. My local, state and federal authorities are working with me and a pretty big network of people who are now searching. I want to invite you all to help as well. The world is big, but awfully small through the Internet. I just want back what is mine and the proper justice to follow. Thank you in advance for your help…
This can not be emphasized enough, if you see this guitar, please contact the police and send Chris a message via his facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/chris.caffery) or his website: www.chriscaffery.com Every musician probably feels his pain over this.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and for spreading the word!
