Sure Tom Petty can afford to replace the guitars that were recently stolen from him from a Culver City rehearsal studio, but in truth, the master works are basically irreplaceable.

Talk about vintage, the crooks got away with a 1967 Blonde Rickenbacker, a 1967 Epiphone Sheridan, a 1965 Gibson SG TV Jr., a Fender Broadcaster and a Dusenberg Mike Campbell Model, which belonged to Campbell himself… Now some scumbag is housing these works of art and that is troubling.


Petty has offered a bounty of $7,500 for their safe return, a mere pittance compared to what the guitars are actually worth.
