IBMA is mostly an old family homecoming, but there are a few bad apples in the barrel, so to speak. It seems one of them was wondering around the Renaissance Friday morning.
Chris Harris, who plays mandolin with Junior Sisk and Rambler’s Choice, is reporting that someone stole his Gibson Adam Steffey Model mandolin Friday morning around 5AM. The instrument was stolen from the 18th floor of the Nashville Renaissance Hotel.
The mandolin is a limited edition, number 29 of 50.
Chris has the Bill of Sale, Certificate of Authenticity, and has filed a police report with the Nashville authorities. The instrument is not only expensive, it carries a great deal of sentimental value as well.
If anyone has any information or spots this instrument for sale, please contact Chris immediately at 336-613-6998.
