Al Jardine’s Guitar is Missing

Beach Boys co-founder Al Jardine is missing one of his priceless vintage guitars. The guitar, which was a mainstay of Jardine’s ’70s shows with the band has been lost, and he’s posted a message to fans seeking their help on Facebook: “Folks, I recently ‘lost’ a black ’56 Les Paul guitar in the Monterey area. It was ‘borrowed’ but apparently not returned due to apparent forgetfulness. I treasure this black beauty a lot and would appreciate any information relating to its whereabouts (i.e. pawn shops, craigslist, etc) that you might have. Please message me with any info that could lead to the recovery of one of my favorite guitars. Thank you, I greatly appreciate your help.”  Here’s Al playing his missing guitar in 1976.
