Black Label Societys Zakk Wylde's Pelham Blue Bullseye Gibson LP custom guitar has been recovered after being stolen off his bus in Chicago March 14 th .
The guitar turned up at Royal Pawn, a Chicago pawn shop that was the setting of truTV's "Hardcore Pawn: Chicago" reality TV show.
The shop's owners told the Chicago Tribune that a man came in to sell the guitar on March 24 th . An employee paid around $50 for the guitar and it then sat in storage at the pawnshop for the legally required 30 day period. Eventually owners realized the guitar was likely more valuable than initially realized. They took it to the Chicago Music Exchange, where staff quickly identified it as Wylde's stolen guitar.
As part of its investigation, the police has taken information about the seller. Wylde tweeted out a thank you to everyone involved in the recovery. Wylde's manager added the guitar has not yet been returned to the rocker as of this date.
