Smooth jazz musician and American Idol band guitarist Paul Jackson Jr. is offering a substantial reward for the safe return of three of his favorite guitars. Thieves stole the guitars by smashing the window of Jackson’s car parked outside his Los Angeles-area neighborhood. He had just returned home about two in the morning after a gig, was exhausted, and never thought his car would be burglarized.
The reward will be offered for any of the guitars, which have great sentimental and monetary value. One of them, a Paul Reed Smith single-cut hollow body, is the one pictured on the back on Jackson’s upcoming CD Lay It Back, which is due March 17.
