British rockers Maximo Park have called on their fans to help locate bassist Duncan Lloyd's beloved guitar, after the instrument was stolen just hours before a homecoming gig in Newcastle, England.
The Apply Some Pressure musicians were set to take to the stage at the city's Newcastle Academy on Wednesday (13May09) when Lloyd realised his expensive instrument was missing.
The guitar is especially close to Lloyd's heart as it was once owned by late The Clash star Joe Strummer.
The band has offered a significant reward for the guitar's return.
