Jack White Signed Guitar Stolen From London Studio

February 24, 2011
Jack White Signed Guitar Stolen From London StudioA guitar signed by former White Stripes star Jack White has been stolen from an art studio in East London.

The instrument, a Fender Stratocaster worth £15,000, was taken from owner Paul Biver's Old Street studio on January 23 between the hours of 8pm and 9.30am the next day.

Biver, 37, had been given the guitar by a friend after helping with a restoration project.

"A friend of mine collects rock memorabilia and had asked me to help transform his barge but then ran out of money, so I asked if I could have the guitar as payment," he told BBCNews.

"That was three years ago so obviously it has just increased in value since then. I don't normally store it in my design studio but was making a case for it so was gutted when I realised it had been taken."

A computer and TV were also taken during the robbery. Police have appealed for anyone with information to come forward to help with their inquiries.
