Bryan Adams' Vintage Guitar 'Defaced' By Customs Officials

(TeamRock Radio) Bryan Adams has called out customs officials at Cairo International Airport who 'defaced' his instrument collection. The staff allegedly scrawled on the instruments with green indelible marker, including his prized vintage guitar - a 1957 Martin D-18 worth thousands of dollars.

The singer told NBC: "It was some kind of customs clearance identification. The problem is, it's a vintage guitar from 1957 and the outside of old instrument is fragile. The instruments were all marked - even my harmonicas! So silly."

But he later told fans in Egypt: "It will be fixed no problem. I want you all to know that I love your country and we had an amazing time there, we felt at home. The incident of defacing our instruments at airport customs is annoying, but it needed to be said." Read more here.
