Attention Petty Thief!

Hey! Did you just steal a bunch of Tom Petty’s guitars from his tour? Someone did, including his recognizable Rickenbacker.

And Tom wants them back. Real badly:

It must have been a heartbreaking moment for Tom Petty as five of his band’s guitars were stolen from a studio in Culver City.

The guitars were stolen Thursday afternoon from Culver Studios, 9336 W. Washington Blvd., where Tom Petty was rehearsing for an upcoming tour, police said.

Tom Petty’s band posted detailed descriptions with pictures and serial numbers, as well as a $7,500 ”no questions asked” reward, on its website.

The stolen instruments include Petty’s blond 1967 12-string Rickenbacker and his Gibson SGTVJunior, Mike Campbell’s blue Dusenberg Mike Campbell model, Ron Blair’s Fender Broadcaster and Scott Thurston’s 1967 Epiphone Sheridan.

A quote from Petty’s website confirmed the theft.

This might be a case for a Petty Officer, no?
