Seeking 1850s Martin Guitar


In January, 2014, thieves stole the musical instruments from our home in Portland, Oregon, USA. Among the instruments we lost was this vintage 19th century Martin guitar, in a black hard case with brass-plated hardware and a green lining.

I’m offering a significant reward for any information that leads to its return. I can be contacted via email at

The thieves also stole my cello and my wife’s violin, among other things. Please take a look at these other two links if you might encounter any of our instruments. Our Portland Police case number is 14-001691.
