Brakes guitarist makes public plea for lost guitar

Does anyone out there know of its whereabouts?

Following on from the Brakes set at Glastonbury last weekend (June 22-24), the band have issued a public plea for the safe return of one of their prized instruments.

Brakes guitarist Eamon Hamilton lost his guitar at Glastonbury Festival and has since issued a plea to anyone who may have any information on its whereabouts.

Hamilton left his Gewa Tennesee Bluesbird guitar lying in the mud outside the Leftfield Tent, sometime between 3AM and 7AM on Sunday (June 24), after playing a set at 2.30AM.

The guitar was in a black case and had a ‘Bronze Ace’ wooden microphone pick up, with the ‘Bronze’ wording rubbed off.

He wishes to make it strongly understood, that although the guitar holds no real monetary value, it is of priceless sentimental value, as most tracks taken from their last two albums were composed on it.

Anyone who has any information regarding the missing guitar should contact Rough Trade at the following website address

The successful return of the guitar will be rewarded with a private gig in your front room by Hamilton himself.
