    This is copied from the band's Facebook page- I saw it on a PRS user's group and thought I'd help spread the word. I'm not affiliated with the band in any way.

    ATTENTION, some bad news to report... A couple nights ago after our show in Portland, our truck was broken into in our hotel parking lot, and 3 of my guitars, and 1 of Korey’s were stolen. I’m posting pics of each guitar and will list the serial numbers below. Please share, and keep an eye out on resell sites (eBay, Reverb, FB marketplace) and if you’re in Portland or the PNW area, please keep an eye out!

    The missing guitars are:
    Paul Reed Smith Tremonti Black Cherry / SN: 11178362
    Paul Reed Smith Green Custom 22 / SN: 6112950
    Paul Reed Smith Platinum SC-250 / SN: 13202826
    Paul Reed Smith Charcoal Burst SC-250 / SN: 7122375)

    Wow that sucks! I hope they get their guitars back asap. I'm tired of hearing about bands getting their instruments stolen.

    Stay on Portland Craigslist, it’ll probably come up...unfortunately, here people and police care more about sympathizing with the thief...Portland sucks

    Check pawn shops in the area the soonest possible. They may attempt to unload them fast.

    man I swear any time someone brings a PRS to a pawn shop it should be assumed stolen.

    Well, the cheaper SE models can appear in pawn shops. You can find anything in a pawn shop as people can get desperate for quick cash. If the mafia says that they want their money in 2 hours or they start cutting off fingers, you take the Private stock 10k to the pawn shop (if you do not know collectors with paypal accounts) and do what you have to do.
    Nevertheless, lets see if the owner of the guitars manages to retrieve at least one of them. Its obvious really but they should check local music shops as well that have used guitars. Might get lucky there.

    Yeah obviously SE models.... I just figure even guitar center or something will give you more for your PRS. Most pawn places will lowball the shit out of you.... I guess maybe if you plan on trying to get it back still pawning makes sense but outright selling.
