Local Musician’s Guitar Stolen Out of Car on Market Street

It’s a very sad surreal day for Mark Pickerel, a prominent musician in the local music scene best known for his presence in bands such as The Young Evils, Screaming Trees, and the Tripwires. The 1960’s Washburn Prairie Song guitar that he has composed every song he’s ever written was stolen out of the back seat of his car around 12am this morning in Ballard, on the corner of NW Market Street, and NW 24th Street. guitar

The guitar is of deep sentimental value for Pickerel, and if you have any leads or information on it’s whereabouts, you’re encouraged to contact the SPD North Precinct Burglary/Theft department at (206) 684-5735, or hit Pickerel up on his facebook.
