BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — One of the signature red, white and blue guitars belonging to the man who helped coin the Bakersfield Sound, Buck Owens, was stolen from the Oildale post office that was named after him.
As seen from the window of the post office, the display case that once housed the iconic country crooner’s guitar is empty. The guitar was donated in 2008 by the Owens family when the post office was renamed after Owens, according to 17News records.
Overnight the post office on Minner Avenue in Oildale was broken into, according the the U.S. Postal Service.
