Wil van Allen banjo - stolen Dublin (possibly in Merseyside)

A place for our musicians to post information about instruments lost, stolen, or otherwise missing.
Forum rules
This is the C&F-wide forum for posting notices of any instruments which have been lost or stolen, or have gone missing.

Titles should include at least the type of instrument (flute, fiddle, etc.), the place of disappearance, and the nature of the loss.

Example: Stolen: Generation D whistle in Timbuktu

Reports linked from other sources or internet sites should include the basic information in addition to just the link.

In order to limit cross-posting, and to keep reporting and information centralized in one place, a post linking to a notice here (but not a copy) may be posted in ONE other C&F forum, typically the forum of the instrument involved.

Of course, follow-up posts to announce found or recovered instruments are always welcome!

Thanks - Your ChiffCo Management

Wil van Allen banjo - stolen Dublin (possibly in Merseyside)

Post by MarkP »

A lot of people will know about this already, but please share the info as there is a clear CCTV footage of the guy who stole it (possibly from Merseyside)...


Wil van Allen banjo, costomised, fitted with a red pick up switch on the side.
It is a four string vintage banjo, over 50 years old.There`s not many of them around!

There was also" Boss" bass equilizer pedal, and Letherman multitool in the tight fitting black nylon case.

It was stolen from a pub in Temple bar, Dublin on 3rd of october (late saturday night) after performing a gig.

The guy who stole it is around mid to late 20 `ies. Very dark brown or black hair. Slim built, around 5`8".He was wearing a light ( white?) wristband, non metalic, like the ones from festivals or a hospital, grey jumper with little zip, jeans and white laced trainers.

His accomplice estimate about 5`10", solid build. Shortish brown hair.He was wearing Light colour button-up shirt , jeans and black dirty trainers with white laces.

They might be from Liverpool according to the woman, that was speaking to them on the night of the robbery.
