“Somehow out of a truck full of guitars, this ONE pallet was singled out and stolen at a truck stop,” says Sweetwater Chief Supply Chain and Merchandising Officer Phil Rich. “With a retail value of $95,000 in guitars, we feel this person/s knew exactly what to look for and when.”

If you have any information, call Detective Kenny Polley of the Whiteland Police Department at 317-535-8100. The serial numbers of the missing guitars are pictured (left).
