Stolen Instrument Alert: lefty quartet

We have been made aware of the theft of a number of left-handed instruments that may show up within the bluegrass community.

In what may have come as an unpleasant surprise to the thief, all of the instruments taken were left-handed models, making them not only harder to sell quickly, but also much easier to identify on the secondary market.

These were stolen within the jurisdiction of Botetourt County, VA and include:

  • Michael Kelly Dragonfly mandolin
  • Taylor acoustic guitar
  • Morgan Monroe mandolin
  • Dobro guitar, round neck

All are lefties.

Any information about these instruments should be sent to David Dillow with the Botetourt County Sheriff’s Department. (540-473-8631, 540-473-7920, 540-793-1353)
