Guitar thieves.... the scum of the earth. A guitar becomes part of a musicians soul. To steal a guitar is to steal from another's soul.

Here's a Good theft recovery tool.

Take a piece of paper and write your
Name
Address or work address
Phone number
And reward

Then place the paper under your pick guard, under a pickup if no pick guard or in control cavity.

While no guarantee that you will get it back fast, no doubt at some time it will come across a repair mans bench at some point.

It also makes it easy to prove it's yours should a roadside dispute with the law occur. As only you would know your info is written on paper in said area.

Let's hope you never have to use it.

Name, cell. phone, city (no complete address), reward.

All my electrics are tagged in this way, been doing it since the '70s. One of my former Telecasters showed up at Folkway a few years back, still IDed under the pickguard (I called and asked).

My acoustics have labels on the underside of the top, and a couple of them are IDed in handwriting before they were fully assembled.

I also have detailed photos and an itemized list with the insurer.
