Zakk Wylde's Pelham Blue Les Paul Stolen!

 Zakk Wylde's prized Pelham Blue bullseye Gibson Les Paul Custom was stolen yesterday at approximately 10 pm from his tour bus during the Experience Hendrix Show in Chicago -- an extravaganza that also includes Buddy Guy, Eric Johnson, Dweezil Zappa, Johnny Lang, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
 
Contact Wylde through Twitter at @ZakkWyldeBLS if you have any information about the Les Paul's whereabouts.
 
In an interview for gibson.com, Wylde had expressed what the Pelham Blue means to him.
 
“The first one I actually had was Gibson Pelham Blue SG Firebrand,” said Zakk. “It was actually really cool. I ended up getting rid of it because I wanted to save up for a Les Paul Custom or something like that, but it was a kick-ass guitar. When I look back, I wish I’d saved that thing. It was also unusual because it didn’t have a rosewood fingerboard – it had an ebony fingerboard, and it had just round inlay markers. That was a killer guitar. I had to have been maybe 15 or so when I got it, and I probably had it until I was maybe 16, 17, something like that, before I decided I had to get that Les Paul instead.

“Happily, Gibson made me a custom Les Paul Custom where the whole guitar is Pelham Blue – the front, the back, the neck – and then they put the black bullseye on it. It sounds totally killer. I also have one of my ZVs in Pelham Blue, and I call the two guitars "the Blue Balls."
