David Evans' Guitar Stolen

Hello all

We were warned two days ago that David Evans' guitar had been stolen in La
Ch?ze (France), and we are doing our best to warn everyone likely to hear
about it, musicians and everyone in touch with second-hand retailers. I
doubt the instrument will leave Europe, but I think it would be a mistake to
assume it will remain in France so I guess neither Bert nor anyone here will
mind if I provide some details, in case it re-appeared some way or other -
this is all the more important that this Gibson has a considerable
sentimental value for David Evans, who inherited it from his father.

The best photo we could find until now is here :

Here are the details provided by David himself

border, red sunburst front red plastic pick guard
