We are sharing on behalf of the wider music community and looking for information to pass onto those affected. This is a message from Michael Daly from Govanhill who has just become a victim of a break-in.
Today our flat in Govanhill was broken in to. Among other things they took every instrument I own. This is a collection of guitars I have accumulated over 10 years and I am heartbroken. All the instruments are of great sentimental importance and some are irreplaceable. I cannot stress enough how important all of these instruments are to me and my daily life. I urge everyone to please share this post and any Glasgow based musicians to keep their eyes peeled for anything coming up for sale or in the hands of any musician other than yours truly. Thank you!
Below is a list with pictures and specs of everything that was stolen.
Fender 72 Telecaster Custom, worn Walnut (brown) finish, buckle rash on the back, black strap & Mexican neck.
