Windhand’s Instruments, Gear, Etc. Stolen In Houston, TX


Windhand were the victims of theft while on tour last night (November 06th) in Houston, TX. A number of instruments, gear and personal items were stolen in the apparent break-in, the band commented:

“Got robbed in Houston last night. Keep an eye out for this gear. We’re waiting to file a report but this is what we’ve tagged as missing so far. There will be more to come. Spread the news far and wide:

– ‘79 Rickenbacker 4001 (maybe walnut burst) with a busted pick guard and the D string tunes in the wrong direction. Beat to shit.
– ‘2011 White Gibson SG. White bridge pickup with personal info and identifying marks under the pick guard. Beat to shit. In a Gibson case with G1 painted on it.
– 2013 black Gibson SG (not pictured). Silver pickups with ‘1974’ painted under the pickups. In a Gibson case with G2 painted on it.
– ‘82 Rickenbacker 4001 bass with a Seymour Duncan bridge pickup. Almost everything is blacked out including a custom-made black truss rod cover so it doesn’t say “Rickenbacker.” This was in a custom @emperorcabinets flight case covered in stickers and, you guessed it, beat to shit.
– Ludwig black beauty snare (not pictured). 14×6.5” in a case with our logo spray painted on it.
