This is terrible...I feel badly for you all. I truly hope they turn up so you aren't always looking around the corner for them. A sad day. I hope they show up soon.You just can't steal a musician's instrument.

Is this an inside job? I'm really upset that someone would DO such a thing! Hope they are recovered soon.

I just dont understand how people could claim to be a fan of yours and steal what is very important to you and The Heartbreakers.....what where they thinking? The people or person who did this I have a few words for you....You may think your friends and family are proud of you for doing this... it will be one of them that turns you in, I cant wait to see the face of the fool who stole from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers...and if you have tickets to one of thier shows I hope they give them away to a REAL fan
