The Strokes Guitar Missing.

It should be pointed out that this guitar is “missing” not “stolen” at this point. Who knows if that will change. Here’s what their blog has to say:

In a bit of unfortunate news, we’ve recently learned that Nick’s beloved Epiphone guitar has gone missing while being shipped from NYC to LA. A description of the guitar and its case is below and we ask that you join us in keeping an eye out for it. It goes without saying how bummed he is that it’s gone missing.
If you have any info at all about the guitar – perhaps see it in a pawn shop or on eBay – please send an email to
Color: Natural (Orange-ish hue)
Brand: Epiphone
Model: 1995 Riviera
Serial Number: R95E5702
What makes it unique: The pic guard has been removed. The headstock plate has an “E” Epiphone logo on it. Trapezoidal “mother-of-pearl” inlays on the neck. It’s been modified with P-94 pick ups and trapeze tailpiece.
Black Calzone Flight case with metal edges and butterfly latches. There’s a crack in the bottom of the case with gaffer tape covering it up. Covered in fragile stickers and other markings from traveling.
We deeply appreciate the extra eyes and ears,
– The Strokes
Keep your eyes out.
