"We already have two eyewitnesses who saw the idiot running down the street with it"

Central Coast business Macron Music has made a public appeal for information after a Gretsch-brand guitar valued at more than $2000 was stolen from its premises yesterday afternoon.

The operators at the Erina-based shop took to Facebook on Monday evening to recount the unfortunate chain of events, which began about 4pm when an as-yet unidentified man "came into our store, removed a Gretsch Guitars 5422TDCG Limited Edition Electric Guitar from the wall, hid it in the shop and waited for the sales guys to get busy with other customer[s] before bolting out the door with the guitar in hand".

The post goes on to explain that the guitar — a Snow Crest White model with gold hardware, as seen below — is priced about $2500, but the cost goes beyond mere monetary loss.

"Not only is it a 2-and-a-half-thousand-dollar guitar but this lowlife has deprived somebody the opportunity to own a really cool Gretsch guitar as well as stealing our property in broad daylight," read the post, which can be seen in full below.

Although police have been contacted, and Macron Music is armed with eyewitnesses "who saw the idiot running down the street" with the guitar (plus some pretty damning security footage), they have nonetheless asked members of the public to come forward with any further potentially relevant information regarding the theft.

If you have any details that might be of use, contact the store via Facebook, on (02) 4367 8500 or at info@macronmusic.com.au.
