Reward offered for return of �2k guitar taken in Romford

A ROMFORD instrument store is appealing for the return of a “one-off” guitar which was stolen on Monday (February 14).

As staff at Professional Music Technology (PMT) in South Street, were closing the shop they realised that a tortoise-shell colour Paul Reed Smith guitar - worth around �2,700 - had been stolen.

Manager Dylan Hines said: “It’s pretty much a one off, there are not many of them. I think it was the only one in that colour in the country.”

The store is offering a reward of �200 for the instrument, which is the first guitar to have been stolen from the shop in the 15 years that Mr Hines has been in charge.

But he believes that any thieves are unlikely to have much success in selling it on. “We’ve reported it to the police and we’re also looking for it,” he said.

“It’s only the guitar on it’s own without a case or accessory pack. It’s made by a high end guitar company and anyone who knows about guitars, would know that without a case it’s obviously stolen.

He added: “The kind of person who’s going to want to buy it will want the full guarantees and all the parts that make it attractive.”
