Hello- this is Pat from The Fucktrots. Pay close attention to the following: Tonight my guitar was stolen from 117 Glenville Avenue in Allston, MA after we finished playing a show. It disappeared about 15 minutes after the end of our set and appears to have been taken by a stranger/possible Allston resident who left out the back door. The event was intended to be a private party but was ultimately peppered with some unfamiliar faces. If you were in attendance and have any information regarding suspicious characters, let us know IMMEDIATELY. It is seriously important to me that we try everything possible to recover this guitar. I have had it since I was a small child and had intended to keep it for the rest of my life. It is the only material possession of mine that I care about and I am absolutely heartbroken that it was taken. I learned to play music on this guitar. It is part of me. Moreover, it is the only guitar we use in The Fucktrots and its absence will affect the progress of this band and possibly disrupt our upcoming tour, a trip that to us represents the culmination of over a year of hard work and sacrifice. The fact that it was taken has shaken my faith in the goodness of people. It was an extremely selfish act and it would be a terrible shame if the person who stole it were successful in their crime. So please help us find this guitar.
It’s a 2001 Fender Highway-One Stratocaster, cream colored with chipped paint and a unique worn look from years of heavy use. It is very distinct and should be immediately recognizable. If you live in the area, attended the party, know people who attended the party, or know people who live in the area, I hope you make an effort to find information leading to the recovery of this instrument. The police have been notified, a report has been filed, and a $500 REWARD WILL BE GIVEN TO ANYONE WHO CAN FIND THE GUITAR. It would mean a lot if I could get it back. It is irreplaceable, one of few things in my life that I care for very deeply.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me look. I totally appreciate it. And thanks to those of you who have come to see us play, boogied in the front row, splashed beer on our equipment, and donated money. You are beautiful. Happy 4th of July.
P.S – No amount of blood, negative publicity, or stolen equipment will stop us from wrecking your face with our music. Rock and roll can never die.
