    I had two guitars stolen from me in Auburn, Washington a couple days ago. One of them was brand new that I had bought a week ago. If there's anyone that sees anything in pawn shops, on craigslist, on ebay, or anything that looks like these guitars, I would be eternally grateful. Please, please repost to get this thread popular. These guitars are all I have.

    Guitar 1: Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top, stock except for the bridge pickup (I put in a SD distortion)
    Color: Wine Red

    That's the worst dude. I really hope you find them.
    Do you have any distinguishable things about the guitars? Stickers, blemishes etc.
    Also do you have the serial numbers of your guitars? That would help greatly.
    I wish I could help more, I doubt I'd see them in Australia though :(

    Thanks for the concern, guys. Unfortunately I don't have the serial numbers for either of them. I never bothered to keep record of them other than looking at them to determine when the guitars were made. Now I kick myself for that mistake.

    The Fender is US made in 2010, so the first part of the serial will be US10. But that's all I know, and I don't know about the LP because it was my first guitar, which I bought 9 years ago when I didn't care about where it was made.

    As for specific details, I have few. The Fender is brand new - I bought it about 8ish days ago, and it got stolen within 6 days of owning it. So that should have no blemishes, scratches, or anything. The LP has a couple distinguishing features: firstly, one of the tone/volume knobs is cracked and has a chunk missing off of it. Secondly, the bridge pickup isn't stock - I swapped it for a duncan distortion. It has a relatively nasty dent on the edge near the output jack.

    Man, that is ....ed up. I hope you find them man, and whoever took em will undoubtedly reap a world of shit. Leading a life like that brings nothing but bad news.

    Head up high, bro.

    It's a longshot, but maybe, MAYBE you can contact the store where you bought the Fender, and hopefully they keep records of the guitars they have/had in stock, including the serial number of it.
    Other than that, the only thing that I can think about is, did you had them in cases? if so, what kind? maybe whatever asshole that took 'em tries to sell it with certain specific case, and that would be a red flag. (I have a friend that keeps his LTD EC1000 on a Gibson case, something like that)

    Anyway, best of luck man, makes me sad to see threads like this :(
    I live in El Paso, so it's highly doubtful that they'll show up over here, but I'm sending all my mojo your way in hopes that you find them :)
