Subject: Stolen Instrument Alert, Toronto
I just received The Foggy Hogtown Boys Electronic Newsletter. It contained the following information. Please keep your eyes peeled.

On a sad note, friend and Dobro player Chris Barkley has had two Dobros stolen following a break-in at his home.   These were the only items stolen, so it appears the thieves knew what they wanted. If you see these guitars, please immediately call the police or Chris Barkley at (613)-535-1783 or email On May 29th, the following instruments were stolen:

1) Mike Auldridge Signature guitar by Beard Guitars Model MA-6 number 026 with hard-shell TKL case. The guitar is black with 'hearts and flowers' Gibson banjo style inlay on the neck. The mesh has been removed from the screen hole covers leaving just the rings.

2) 1951 National 6-string electric lap steel. Charcoal-grey pearloid coloured body. The original fret-board is missing and has been replaced with a clear plastic fret-board with the fret lines drawn on with marker.

For photos of these instruments, contact Chris Barkley at   Let's all keep our eyes open and try to get Chris' instruments back to him.
