Zakk Wylde's (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) Pelham Blue Bullseye Gibson LP custom guitar, along with his leather vest, were both stolen last night (Friday, March 14) from his tour bus at the Chicago, Illinois stop of the Experience Hendrix tour at the Chicago Theater.
"I had my guitar in the tour bus because this is the home," Wylde told the Chicago Tribune.
"I thought somebody might have picked [the guitar] up and put it in the back lounge (inside the theatre).
"In 25-plus years, I’ve never had anything stolen," he added.
"Nothing gets stolen off tour buses unless you don't lock them," he said. "Rule number one: when you get off this (expletive deleted) bus, you lock the (expletive deleted) door and you check the handle."
Wylde values the guitar at $10,000.
Fans are asked to keep their eyes and ears open, especially at their local pawn shops.
If anyone has any information regarding the guitar, please contact local authorities.
