San Antonians - we sure like to take things from people NEW: Police track down stolen guitar linked to Buddy Holly By Zeke MacCormack Express-News Staff Writer Web Posted : 09/17/2003 10:26 AM Boerne police say they have located a stolen 1925 Gibson guitar that reportedly was played on stage with Buddy Holly and could be worth as much as $150,000. Sgt. Mark Busbee said today that charges are being prepared against two of the owners friends who reportedly took it Aug. 8 from a residence where it was stored. After the theft was discovered Aug. 29, calls to area music stores showed a San Antonio firm had bought it for $700 from one of the suspects and sent it to Tennessee for refurbishment. No work had been done on it, and the company was expected to ship the guitar back to Texas this week, Busbee said. He said the instrument wasnt insured despite its claimed lineage. Supposedly, it was played with Buddy Holly by a relative of the owner who is in the California Country Music Hall of Fame, Busbee said. "The value is between $100,000 and 150,000." The owner could not be reached.
