Well, here are 5 Blondes on a Couch! All stolen, all redeemed!

L-R: 1981 Martin EM-18 Electric, with Roland GK-1 MIDI pickup. This is the Guitarkestra, from 'BlueBOB' and 'Mulholland Drive'. 1974 Rickenbacker 4001 Bass. 1961 Epiphone 'Broadway', "Mrs. Jones", which I bought while still in High School, in 1968. 1968 Rickenbacker 360, with genuiine '59 Gibson PAF pickup and custom electronics. Used on many many soul records at United Sound, Detroit. 1978 Gibson ES-335 TDN, with factory coil tap switch. A very versatile guitar, also used on many records.

This may seem minor to some, but to me it is a big deal. Recovered with my stolen guitars were two guitar straps that mean a lot to me, both made in 1969 by my friend and bandmate John Barrett. The one on the left is for the 1968 Rickenbacker 360 posted above in The Blondes collection, and the one on the right for the 1961 Epiphone Broadway, named by me "Mrs. Jones", and used in so many soul record sessions.
