Police, Business Owner Fretting Over Stolen Guitars
Two guitars took the Stairway to Heaven on Wednesday after thieves broke into the warehouse and museum of prestigious Australian guitar manufacturer Maton around midnight.
One of the guitars, a red Maton Wild Cat, of which only 100 were made, and a white electric guitar, signed by 38 musicians from the 60s and 70s, were both stolen.
The two guitars are said to be worth over $10,000 each.
The thieves broke into the Box Hill South property by simply smashing a window. The culprits are still at large as police try to recover the “priceless” guitars.
As the owner of Maton guiatars, Neville Kitchen told 3AW, “You really can’t put a value on them.”
It’s always a shame when any business loses their most valuable and sentimental assets. Here at Australian Bollards, we offer Rhino Fencing because we understand what steps businesses must take to secure their assets.
Rhino Fencing by Australian Bollards provides high-density, custom mesh panels and coverings for windows and other areas, perfectly fortified to resist intruders.
Rhino Fencing provides clear visibility and security to businesses with its mesh panels. But what if thieves do gain entry to your business?
This is why, at Australian Bollards, we can secure any business by installing SecureCloak.
SecureCloak activates once an alarm is tripped. Burglars inside the premises are then blanketed with a thick, non-toxic smoke which reduces their visibility to zero after six-to-eight seconds.
SecureCloak’s alarm can also be activated by a duress button for on-the-clock staff during business hours to provide peace of mind for staff and owners 24/7.
If Maton had also secured their assets with SecureCloak, the burglars would never have been able to pick out the ‘cream of the crop.’ Instead, they would fumble around and have to leave within seconds.
Ensure your peace of mind at night by protecting your business and assets from night-time burglaries.
Thieves normally steal before they leave, but with SecureCloak, they must run before they’re done.
