Steve Morse’s guitar stolen

Somebody stole my guitar….(Literally)

At some point during the reunited Dixie Dregs set up for the show at the Lincoln Theatre, Washington D.C. a one off acoustic/electric guitar was stolen.
Having owned the guitar for over 30 years Steve is obviously eager to get it back, and so is offering a reward for its safe return.

It goes without saying that if anyone has any information on this matter please pass it on, and lets get Steve reunited with his guitar.

    FYI, this happened on March 7, during load in before the show, at the back of the theatre. The guitar in question is a handmade custom built Buscarino.

    To a musician everything else is just stuff and if it’s stolen it’s not the end of the world. But an instrument is a very personal thing, sometimes it’s so special that you search for it your whole life. To someone else it’s only some piece of gear which looks nice at best. A musician would never do anything to another musician’s instrument – and certainly not steal it.

    I can’t believe this happened! This guitar has been around since High Tension Wires! I hope Steve manages to get it back soon in perfect conditions; it sure is a priceless article. Long live the Dregs!

    dixie dregs fans are trouble….deep purple fans would never do that.

    This absolutely sucks. I saw both shows in Collingswood & Newton New Jersey respectively. Steve was playing a blond classical guitar and I didn’t think much about using a different instrument than the blue Buscarino.

    Off to NYC tomorrow night and then Pittsburgh next Thursday. Needless to say, standing ovations all night long including someni (:>) jaws dropped.

    Thank you Maestro Morse and each and every Dreg. And prayers for the return of your priceless guitar.

    @8 Kim,

    Congratulations. You take the cake for a model of ignorance at this point in the thread.

    In response to #5, I’ll be nice to get this posted and just say ‘not correct’. I’ve been a Dregs fan since about 1992. The only reason DP interests me is because of SM. The Dregs usually draw good quality people as I’m sure DP does. Since the guitar was stolen during load in, it was probably not a fan at all, just a common thief. In any case you should not blame any group of people since we do not know who did it. I have High Tension Wires and the last piece on the album is a beautiful acoustic/electric piece. So that must be the guitar. I really hope Steve gets it back in perfect condition.

    The guitar is back home with Steve, undamaged. See his FB page and website.
