Stolen Instrument List

Copyright © 2013 by Michael I. Holmes

If you have instruments to add, email the information to me. Include make, model, serial number or brief description, when & where stolen, and your email. The listing is alphabetically by instrument, then make, then model. There are other lists on the web. Don't forget to read the disclaimer at the end. Webmasters, see notice at the bottom of the page. MIH

IMPORTANT: send me only the information requested, in the format below; when you send me extraneous information, it just makes extra work for me. Also, I will only post instruments with a serial number or other significant distinguishing feature.Otherwise, the liklihood of recovery is too small. We list only acoustic, stringed, fretted instruments – no electrics – we just don’t have the audience for them.

We have moved recovered and listings whose contacts have expired to their own pages.
