“Five guitars belonging to Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers have been stolen from the Soundstage in Culver City where they have been rehearsing for their U.S. tour which will start next week,” said a statement on the band’s website.
“Police in Culver City are investigating the burglary. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are offering a $7,500 reward with no questions asked to anyone with information leading to the recovery of the guitars.”

“If you have any information on the whereabouts of these stolen guitars:

The axes stolen include a 1967 Blonde Rickenbacker, a 1967 Epiphone Sheridan, a 1965 Gibson SG TV Jr., a Fender Broadcaster and a Dusenberg Mike Campbell Model, which belonged to Campbell — producer and Heartbreakers band member — himself.
