CHILDREN OF BODOM guitarist Alexi Laiho had two of his Jackson Custom Shop guitars stolen on Saturday, September 28th after the group's 35-minute "showcase" gig at Nosturi in Helsinki, where the band performed as part of the Spinefeast festival.

"You idiot who stole Alexi's guitars from Nosturi after the party, we recommend you return them pretty fucking quickly," the band addressed the culprit via their official web site. "We already have eyewitness statements and the crime will be reported tomorrow. To the others: There are no other copies made of these Jackson Custom Shop guitars. One of them has yellow stripes, and the other has thin white phosphor stripes. Both have golden hardware, and have been scratched while on tour. If some jerk tries to sell these, contact us immediately, we'll give you a remarkable reward!!! [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]"

As previously reported, CHILDREN OF BODOM recently entered Astia studio in Lappeenranta, Finland to begin recording the follow-up to 2000's Follow The Reaper, due out on January 7th, 2003 through Spinefarm Records.
