£15,000 guitar signed by Jack White stolen in London

Police appeal for instrument's return

A guitar worth over £15,000 signed by Jack White has been stolen from a studio in east London.

The instrument’s owner Paul Biver said he had been storing the Fender Stratocaster guitar in his art studio while he built a display case.

According to BBC News the instrument was stolen between 8pm (GMT) on January 23 and 9.30am the next day from Sara Lane Court in Hoxton.


Biver said he was “gutted” over the theft, adding: “I don’t normally store it in my design studio but was making a case for it.”

Police have appealed for members of the public to come forward with information. Detective Constable Suzanne Raftery said: “I am appealing to members of the public to come forward if anybody has tried to sell them this rare autographed Jack White guitar.”
