Stolen Gear of Tony Macalpine and Crew

Directly from Tony Macalpine;



Friends,
Our trailer was broken into overnight at our hotel in Austin, TX, and the thieves stole all of Tony's guitars.

Serial numbers will be added shortly:
- his black Ibanez Guitars custom 7-string with EMG Pickups installed (serial LA071509); 
- his white Ibanez 7-string with black EMG 707 pickups (serial LA0168); 


The above guitars are Tony's only two Ibanez 7's and he has been photographed with them extensively. (Here are two of Tony's Ibanez LA Custom Shop guitars that were stolen in Austin, TX on June 11.

- Black Ibanez Guitars custom 7-string with black metal EMG Pickups installed (serial LA071509). This guitar has been Tony's main 7-string guitar since around 2009, and he has been photographed with it numerous times.. It has a ZR trem installed. The finish is flat black, however the guitar is shiny around the pickups and knobs where Tony's hands rest when he plays.
- White Ibanez 7-string with black EMG 707 pickups (serial LA0168) has been around since 2013. Tony can be seen on the cover of his new album Concrete Gardens with this guitar. It has a distinctive light rosewood neck.)
Also stolen was a sunburst Peavy Wolfgang, and a white Carvin 7-string, as well as Tony's entire pedalboard, which is also pictured below. The pedalboard base is plexiglass, and it comes in a very beat up guitar case.


Also stolen were a Peavy EVH sunburst, a white Carvin 7-string; plus Tony's pedalboard.

As you can imagine, this has completely disabled our tour. When you take a musician's instruments you remove their livelihood.
Please share this post! We hope our network of friends and fans can help us recover our gear.

Tony also send a message;

We are fortunate that our fans, fellow musicians, and endorsement companies have been able to loan us some of the gear to cover what was stolen so we can continue the tour. This however does not cover the considerable cost to replace the equipment long-term, or the high costs of shipping replacement equipment to us on the road.
Many of our very generous fans wrote to us asking where they could make a donation to get us back on track. We are deeply appreciative of these kind offers, so we decided to set up a GoFundMe campaign.
Thanks for your overwhelming show of support.
