Matt lives across SW Frontenac from the north side of Gatewood Elementary and is asking you to watch out for guitars stolen from his car:
I’m kicking myself for making the mistake, but I left my guitars in my truck out in front of our house on the evening of Thursday November 2nd. When I went out to my truck to go to work on Friday morning, I knew right away what had happened. Someone had broken in and stolen my guitars and my backpack with song books, journal etc. We love our neighborhood, but I never leave things in our vehicles for this reason. Sadly, I blanked out this time and paid for it. Here are some more details as to what was taken in the off chance they cross people’s paths.
Taylor 714 Acoustic Guitar – serial #20060209124
Vintage Classical Guitar – circa early 70’s with distinctive wear around the sound hole where someone played it with a pick long ago and scratched up the soundboard.
It seems crazy that I don’t know the make given how long I’ve had the guitar and how much I love it, but it’s true. I seem to remember it being a Japanese maker, perhaps starting with an M. …
Northface Backpack, black – contents include a song book, journal, egg shakers, harmonica, harmonica holder, and other odds and ends etc. In short, things that would be meaningless to others, but matter to me.
A police report is filed among other steps Matt has taken to get the word out. If you have any info on the stolen items, you can refer to SPD incident # 2017-409388.
