Here’s a post from the owner of Arbutus Music in Nananimo, BC, Richard Leighton. He’s known as a genuine and caring soul and this must be devastating. Keep on the lookout across Canada for this stuff. If I come across pictures I will update it on here.

Richard’s Facebook post:
“If you know anyone who is selling a '59 Les Paul, '75 Tele Custom, '62 Westwood 77, 1916 Martin 00-18K and more, let me know, I'll meet them in person.” It was also stated to contact him or Nanaimo RCMP (probably both).

Pics and serial numbers would be helpful. Hope they catch the bastard(s)!

Yeah, I’m a little surprised he hasn’t posted that yet, I’m almost figuring he has a reason not to at this point. But I can’t imagine what it would be.

And yeah, not gonna be easy to unload a ‘59 or pre war Martin without a bit of digging by someone. Richard is renowned and very liked in the community. Everyone is watching out for him. I am just hoping this post helps get eyes open across Canada a bit. I can’t imagine it getting posted to the nanaimo Craigslist. Haha

can’t imagine it would be too easy to sell a ‘59 without it getting a full background check
Part of this statement assumes that the thief/thieves know what they have stolen.
They may just consider it a run of the mill guitar.
And sell it to buddy etc.
