Dave Alvin’s guitar stolen after Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

posted a few hours ago on Dave Alvins facebook page

Had an amazing and exhausting weekend at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. I have wonderful memories of playing with The Guilty Ones with my dear brother Phil joining us, the tribute to Doug Sahm (with Boz Scaggs, Derek O’Brien, Jimmie Vaughan, Delbert McClinton and Boz’s tough band) and, of course, The Knitters. Sadly, though, these memories are now badly tarnished by the fact that someone (I’m trying to refrain from using profanity) STOLE my beloved Jerry Jones single cutaway Neptune baritone guitar shown in this video. If anyone in the Bay area sees this in any pawn shops or on the streets of San Francisco, please let me know. Thanks.

It was apparently stolen from the Phoenix hotel parking lot in the Tenderloin. This is the first decent photo of the stolen guitar I’ve seen
