Help find Paul's stolen Larrivee guitar

Birmingham based singer, song-writer Paul Murphy is asking the public to keep an eye out for his beloved guitar which was stolen from a train between Wolverhampton and Birmingham on Saturday evening (3rd November 2012).
Paul, who is well known as the lead singer of The Destroyers and also founder of the Songwriter's Cafe said:
" My beautiful Larrivee guitar was stolen from the Wolverhampton to Birmingham train about 7.30 on Saturday evening. It's in a well used black hard case with Larrivee in gold letters on the side. Contains tuner and capo as in this picture. Any information leading to its recovery would be most gratefully received. Its monetary value is by far outweighed by how much this guitar means to me!"

Paul is a greatly loved and admired musician who has made a huge contribution to the city's creative community over more than four decades. His collaborators and 'friends in music' range from Brum rock 'n' roll  legend Steve Gibbons to the awesome Simon Fowler of Ocean Colour Scene. His multi talented band The Destroyers have been touring Britain and Europe recently and have received glowing tributes and attention on national radio.

Paul is a veritable troubador and tireless conveyor of good vibes where ever he plays - a lot of his time and energy has been dedicated over many years to supporting up and coming local musicians from every possible background. 

Let's do our bit to restore some of those vibes by keeping an eye out for Paul's guitar in pubs, bars, second hand shops, musical instrument stores, cash-for-stuff shops, or being advertised on online retail sites such as e:bay. It is most likely that the guitar will still be in the Black Country or in Birmingham.

If you know who nicked Paul's Larrivee guitar or even just know where it can be collected from, he'd love it back!
