As previously reported, Willie Adler’s “Warbird” guitar and John Campbell’s one of a kind bass were stolen before Lamb Of God’s recent show at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ. Now, according the Phoenix New Times, a listing for the “Warbird” ended up surfacing on the online marketplace OfferUp. Adler and the police were both contacted, but the guitar was not recovered.
Phoenix Police Sergeant Vince Lewis commented:
“One did turn up on OfferUp. We have yet to name a suspect or recover either guitar. Our investigators are actively working this case.
The more we release, the harder it becomes to catch up with a suspect or locate these items before either go underground or into the wind.”
A Lamb Of God fan named Jay Thrash did attempt to meet up with the seller to try and get the guitar back with some vigilante justice, but the plan didn’t end up working out.
Adler believes the thief may have been an employee at the Ak-Chin Pavilion. Live Nation Entertainment have since commented on that:
“The venue is cooperating fully with local law enforcement. We cannot comment further as this is an ongoing investigation.”
