Rob Zombie Guitarist Extraordinaire John 5’s Guitars Stolen

Rob Zombie / ex-Marilyn Manson guitarist John 5 was recently the victim of a home burglary, which left the virtuosic shredder without a portion of his beloved guitar collection.

In response to the robbery, John 5 has posted photos of some of the stolen items on Facebook with the hope that someone out there will identify and return a few, if not all, of his most prized possessions.

Among the items stolen from John 5′s house are a number of Fender Telecasters, a black Gibson Les Paul with three gold humbucking pickups, a banjo and a piece of artwork depicting the monster from ‘The Creature From the Black Lagoon.’ John 5 also added a photo of his signature ’5′ strap to help identify an instrument that could possibly belong to the strummer.

John 5 reached out to his fans via Facebook:

Unfortunately our house was robbed today, we accidentally didn’t put the alarm on, so some assholes got lucky! We will post more pictures of more guitars, these are all the pictures we have now. I just want to put it out there, just in case anyone comes across these items.. Whoever did this will get caught hopefully one day!

John 5 is planning to post additional pictures of items stolen from his home, so keep your eyes open for further updates. John 5′s latest contribution to the world of music, Rob Zombie’s upcoming ‘Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor,’ is set for an April 23 release. Rob Zombie and his crew will also headline this year’s Mayhem Festival in the summer.
