Putting this up on behalf of someone else. Its pretty damm expensive. If you see it or are offered it please send me a PM.
Its an ESP KH2 Kirk Hammet Signature Guitar. Serial No. K22399
mmmm. nowt to do with this is it?
I wouldn't think so, all that polaver went on in the USA. Quite coincidental though!
Hope your mate gets it back, having gear nicked sucks.
This is a follow up to a thread posted by desus a couple of weeks ago, it's just to remind people to please keep an eye out for a guitar which belonged to my brother, and was stolen from our house in Palestine Street, in the Holylands area of Belfast on Thursday 2nd April 2009.
The guitar was an orignal ESP KH2 Kirk Hammett (of Metallica) signature guitar. It's the real ESP, not the budget LTD or Grassroots version, so it's pretty rare and pretty valuable.
It's serial number is k22399 (on the back of the headstock)
It's a black strat styled guitar, with a reverse (upside down) headstock with ESP and a KH signature on it. It has skull and crossbones inlays, 2x EMG pickups, and a floyd rose bridge. It's plain black, and has a bolt on neck. This particular guitar has a very highly figured maple on the back of the neck.
We have the certificate of authenticity and the orignal ESP guitar case, as proof of ownership, plus photos of my bro with the guitar etc.
It was stolen on April 2nd 2009 from our house in Palestine street, along with another brothers passport, and a set of car keys belonging to a friend. This wasn't known until the following day, when they came back and stole the car, a red corsa. It was subsequently crashed through the front wall and garden of a house in St Peter's court, off the Falls road, and this made the front page of the Irish News on Saturday 4th April 2009. The guitar however hasn't been seen since.
It's a high end guitar, and would be pretty hard to sell. It was of considerable personal value to the owner, my brother.
If you are in possession of the guitar, or are aware of it's wareabouts, or have good information that could lead to it's return, there is a cash reward available.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you can help, leave me a PM, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your time,
This guitar was on Gumtree and sold on ebay before Christmas. I contacted the guy through ebay and Gumtree for the serial number, to check it was not a fake. and that's the serial number K22399. If I remember correctly he lived off the Raven hill road and the guitar sold for £750.
In fairness he might not have known it was stolen as it was originally nicked 4 years ago.
This is true, and I did thought of that before posting. But on the other hand though, it does let the original owner know the guitar is still out there.
