Bic Runga updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@bicrunga) on Wednesday (March 10), upset after her prized acoustic guitar was nicked. The New Zealand singer songwriter tells readers:
My favorite acoustic guitar got stolen tonight from Brown St in Ponsonby. It’s a parlor sized guitar, a Sterling. I’m sad man. Pat from Wilco was in love with it, I wish I’d given it to him, rather than have it go this way. My poor little guitar! I’ll watch out on Trade Me but it’s probably a goner.
The tour with Dave Dobbyn and Tim Finn was amazing, we toured New Zealand vineyards for a whole month. It was quite crazy but I enjoyed every minute. There’s wine here in my house from every part of the country. Not a bad way to tour.
Let me know if you see my guitar. Ouch, it hurts.
