Thread Name: Tommy Peoples's fiddle stolen in London
Subject: RE: Tommy Peoples's fiddle stolen in London
Just to elaborate on Ralphie's post, this is the description as so far obtained by the Stolen Instrument Gallery on Facebook

"The fiddle was stolen out of the car which was parked about 200 yds from The Corner House Hotel, 201 Camden Rd
London, NW1 9AA. It was taken in the early hours of Friday morning, 11th September.

It was in a black rectangular composite case. In the inside pocket of the case were two St Martin relics/medallions, a red glass heart, two D'Addario strings and a box set of Helicore strings.

The fiddle has a split or crakc between the E and A tuning pegs. It also has an unusual brown composite chn rest, which you can see in the picture".
