Lost: Spinto Band’s Mandolin

There’s been a loss in the Spinto Band, as their Kay electric mandolin has disappeared. The instrument went missing during the band’s performance at Manchester Academy 3 in the U.K. on Wednesday (Aug. 23), and the band have appealed to fans for its return via their web site, offering tickets to their gig at the Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend. “Tonight we experienced a tragic loss,” the post read. “During this evening’s performance at Manchester Academy 3, somebody stole our Mandolin from the stage. This instrument has little monetary worth, but provides a wealth of sentimental value to us. It is a Kay electric mandolin with a wood sunburst finish, white pickguard, and a crack in the headstock. We are prepared to offer healthy reward upon its return. In addition, if the Mandolin is received before we play Reading / Leeds, the person who delivers it will be offered tickets to those events. This is truly a sad day for the Spinto Band. If you have any information regarding its whereabouts or wish to express your sympathy, please contact us.”
