Here’s an email sent out on Thursday from Arthur McGregor, the owner of the Ottawa Folklore Centre in Old Ottawa South. About $4,000 worth of guitars were stolen in a credit card scam.

Subject: Stolen Guitars
Hello fellow folkies,
the Folklore Centre has just been a victim of credit card fraud and we have lost three valuable instruments:
Eastman AR805CESB – an archtop sunburst guitar with a single neck-mounted pickup (new)
Gibson Hummingbird – special canadian edition (used) – A purplish finish with some finish damage on the top bout
Sigma DR 41 – (New) Rosewood B/S, Spruce top, Some abalone inlay on top.
If you see any of these, please give me a call at 1-800-385-3655 ext 20.
If it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t!
