Good news, everyone! Javier Reyes’ Chevy Blazer was found, and miraculously enough, with Tosin Abasi’s custom Strandberg (above, via Strandberg’s website) was found inside:

Hey everyone.

We’ve actually got some good news to report! The LAPD successfully recovered Javier’s car. The even better news is that one of the stolen guitars was in the back seat! I’m now reunited with Strandberg #17.

We want to commend the LAPD for their ability to find the stolen vehicle within 24 hours of receiving the police report. Hopefully this is the key to finding the rest of the guitars! Something still may pop up online so please keep your eyes open. Thanks for all of the support.

We love you all : )


Hopefully this can help lead to the rest of the stolen gear. Keep in mind that a lot of it was custom made and very unique and rare, so they should be easy to spot. Comb over the Animals as Leaders facebook page for all pertinent details if you want to help the effort for finding the stolen guitars.
