Be cautious of buying bargain left-handed guitars, they could be stolen! See full list below.

This story from MI Pro - ... iday-Music

Gang of thieves take 17 left handed instruments from Rochford retailer

A group of six criminals attacked the Holiday Music store in Rochford at around seven in the evening on Saturday July 3rd, leaving with a total of 17 electric guitars, all of them left handed models.

The thieves drove up to the building in a van, in full view of several CCTV cameras and entered the store, having disabled the security cameras at the rear of the premises. Ignoring the cameras inside, they went about grabbing an apparently random selection of guitars. With all of them being left handed without cases, they have limited market appeal.

PC Stuart Goldsack of Rochford Police is leading the investigation and of course, has called for any information to help him and his team with finding the criminals.
