FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A well-known retailer of musical instruments is seeking the public’s help after a pallet of limited-edition guitars worth tens of thousands of dollars were stolen from a suburban Indianapolis truck stop.

Sweetwater Sound says the new Gibson Adam Jones 1979 Les Paul Custom Silverburst guitars worth an estimated $95,000 worth were stolen Oct. 30 from a semitruck stopped at the Flying J Travel Center in Whiteland. Sweetwater is hoping the guitarist community can help locate the instruments and find those responsible.

The Fort Wayne-based company is urging customers to ask third-party sellers for serial numbers before purchasing similar guitars.
