– Shelby Lynne asked fans to help her recover three guitars and a ukulele that disappeared after her April 5 show in Norfolk, Va.
After investigation, it has been determined that the instruments were stolen. A reward will be offered to the individual(s) who provides information leading to the recovery of the items.
The missing instruments include her 1967 Gibson B-25, a guitar near and dear to her heart. "I wrote every note of 'Revelation Road' on the 67," LYnne said.
"Revelation Road" is the third album released on her own independent label, EVERSO Records. Lynne had just wrapped up the spring leg of her first-ever solo acoustic tour when the theft occurred.
The missing items include:
1. One guitar-shaped blue Calton fiberglass guitar case, containing 1967 Gibson B-25
2. One guitar-shaped black fiberboard guitar case wrapped with tape, containing 1968 Gibson B-25
3. One guitar-shaped dark brown hard guitar case, containing 1995 Gibson AJ Acoustic
4. One smaller guitar-shaped hard ukulele case, containing 1968 Martin Baritone Ukulele
