The story of Ben’s stolen guitars has come to somewhat of a close. Although neither of the guitars were recovered, we’ve made some great friends in the area that took it upon themselves to help out. An awesome show was thrown last month at The Grotto with the goal of helping replace the stolen gear, featuring Nasty ‘Stache, Peru, and Gold Jungle. As it turns out, one of the first pawn shops Ben visited while combing the area for signs of his guitar had the exact same model as his. The show provided the funds needed to return and purchase the guitar seen below.
A few words from Ben: “Thanks to Matt from Meander, Katy from Webbed, and Cody Admire from The Grotto for putting the benefit show together. Thanks to Peru, Nasty ‘Stache, Gold Jungle and Daniel from Meander for playing the show and donating proceeds to the cause! Thanks to all the friends who contributed, even though they couldn’t make it to the show, and thanks to all the fans, and the grotto family for your support. Replacing that guitar really meant a lot to me, and it wouldn’t have happened without the support of all of you.”
