After a gig in Detroit in 1992, Billy Corgan's favorite guitar was stolen. He filed a police report and offered a $10,000 no questions asked reward for the guitar's return. It was all for naught though and Corgan didn't see his guitar again. He had heard rumors about the guitar resurfacing but they turned out to be false - until recently. A friend texted him and said they believed they had found his long lost guitar. It appears the guitar had never left the state of Michigan as it had been sitting as a decoration in the basement of Beth James's home in Flushing, Michigan. She had bought the guitar for $200 at a yard sale about 12 years ago. Not much is know about the guitar's life before Beth bought it, but Billy Corgan is VERY excited that the guitar has been returned to him after all these years. It's great timing too becuase he's currently recording new music!
