Zakk Wylde's Stolen Pelham Blue Bullseye Gibson LP Custom Guitar Recovered
Zakk Wylde's Pelham Blue Bullseye Gibson LP Custom guitar, which was stolen out of the back of his tour bus during the Chicago stop on the Experience Hendrix trek, has been recovered, Loudwire reports.

As the Chicago Tribune reports, the $10,000 guitar was sold for $50 to a Chicago pawn shop 10 days after it was stolen, but the proprietors of the shop had forgotten they had been alerted about the theft.

The owners of the shop Royal Pawn, which had been the subject of the reality show "Hardcore Pawn: Chicago," stored the guitar for 30 days before bringing it to a local guitar shop for appraisal. It was there where they were told that the Gibson axe was Zakk Wylde's stolen guitar.

"I forgot about [the alert]," said Royal Pawn shop owner Randy Cohen. "That happens every day. To be honest, I can't remember [expletive]."

Police detectives recovered the guitar on Friday, May 2, and also retrieved information on the seller from the pawn shop. Wylde is currently on tour and the axe isn't in his hands yet, but his manager Blasko tells the Chicago Tribune, "All I need to know is that it was found. That's good news." Meanwhile, Zakk thanked all the parties who helped recover the guitar in the tweet below:
