The lead singer and guitarist for the popular rockabilly group, King Memphis, got his guitar back this weekend.
The rare 1972 “Les Paul Gold Top” was stolen from Matt Robbins’ car two weeks ago. On Saturday, a Portland Merchant, who asked to remain anonymous, brought it back to him.
Robbins has been playing guitar for 30 years. He always wanted a Les Paul Gold Top and finally found one at a local music store three years ago. He immediately posted pictures and a description of the instrument on the internet. Word spread quickly throughout Maines music community.
Just how it turned up will remain a mystery, but an elated Robbins wants to thank everyone who put out the word about the missing guitar.
