Frampton’s Guitar Found Over 30 Years After Plane Crash

[photogallerylink id=74402 align=right] [mp3com-artist]Peter Frampton[/mp3com-artist] lost his most-prized guitar, a 1954 Gibson Les Paul Custom, in 1980 when a cargo plane crashed en route to Panama.

Now, with very little explanation, the guitar has been returned to him! Spinner reports all the instruments aboard the flight were thought to be destroyed until Frampton’s guitar was located by two fans on the Dutch island of Curacao. Experts from Gibson confirmed it was indeed the original.Frampton’s happy to have the guitar back but puts the situation into perspective saying, “I know I have my guitar back, but I will never forget the lives that were lost in this crash. I am so thankful for the efforts of those who made this possible … And, now that it is back I am going insure it for 2 million dollars and it’s never going out of my sight again! It was always my #1 guitar and it will be reinstated there as soon as possible — some minor repairs are needed.”
