    Blast from the past: have you seen this stolen guitar?

    Hey all,

    I've posted about this before, but I finally found a pic.

    My first guitar was a Silhouette that I purchased from Lincoln Brewster. He used it on Steve Perry's "for the love or strange medicine." I worked for months to save the cash.

    It had an awesome bird's-eye maple neck, and was told that it was the only one made in this color.

    From about age 15 until it was stolen just before my 21st birthday, I ate, slept, and lived this guitar. I was devastated.

    The pic's not that great, but you can see the dirt I put on the fretboard.

    I've replaced it with another Floyd silo, but I can't get another in this color as EB doesn't do em. Plus, it's not my original.

    If you ever see this, please let me know. I would love to have it back, and will pay for it. I'm still searching, 15 years later.

    I love my silos, and feel fortunate to have started out on them.

    Thanks man. This thing was a wonderful instrument, and was a huge loss.

    Good luck dude. My #1 was stolen, less than 6 months after arriving in the US. A nondescript AL HH in Coral Red, but a #1 is a #1 no matter the looks. It just feels right. It's got 'it'.

    One thing that's good about EBMM guitars: their consistency allows easily finding equivalent guitars.
    I didn't say 'replacement' because, well... a #1 is a #1 for a reason that defies just material equivalence.

    I hope you find her again man.

    I hate thieves.
    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you.

    Have you ever considered getting a similar Silo and having it repainted?
