According to the Phoenix New Times, Phoenix police have confirmed that someone tried to sell LAMB OF GOD guitarist Willie Adler‘s “Warbird” guitar on OfferUp.com on Saturday, three days after it was stolen from the venue where the band performed.
As previously reported, guitarist Willie Adler’s main guitar – the “Warbird” – as well as bassist John Campbell‘s “one-of-a-kind handpainted bass,” have disappeared from the band’s semi-truck last Thursday morning (May 2) after a live show at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, AZ.
Following Monday’s Phoenix New Times article about the theft, the Warbird had reportedly been offered up on OfferUp by someone calling themselves “Clash With.” After exchanging a few notes with a potential buyer, the seller changed his profile photo and was no longer responding to inquiries.
“One [of the guitars] did turn up on OfferUp,” said Phoenix Police Sergeant Vince Lewis. “We have yet to name a suspect or recover either guitar. Our investigators are actively working this case. The more we release, the harder it becomes to catch up with a suspect or locate these items before either go underground or into the wind.”
