Stolen instrument alert: 2003 Fern F-5

We have learned that a 2003 Gibson F-5 Fern Master Model mandolin belonging to Bobby Moore was stolen from his home in Roanoke, VA this past weekend. To add insult to injury, the mandolin was taken by someone he had invited to his house for a post-gig picking party.

The mandolin’s serial number is 30528030-V. It was signed by Danny Roberts and has a varnish finish.

Bobby provided a number of photos to help in its identification. Anyone with information about this stolen instrument is urged to contact the Roanoke Police Department, or Bobby directly via Facebook or email.
