A man and a woman entered Peach Guitars at around 4pm on Tuesday, February 20 and made a purchase before going to the upper floor of the store.

The man took a Brazilian Mccarty 594, worth a five-figure sum of cash, from the wall and removed its tag.

The guitar was then concealed in the woman’s long coat as they left the store.
