Randy Rhoads’ Guitar And Amp Head Remain Missing, Ozzy’s $25K Reward Still Stands
On Thanksgiving of this year, a collection fo gear and memorabilia belonging to late Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Randy Rhoads was stolen from the Musonia School For Music, a music school that was founded by Randy’s mother Delores. In response, Ozzy offered up a $25,000 reward for the return of these items. Initially, everyone assumed that all was said and done when a woman discovered a large number of the items in a dumpster in North Hollywood…but now it appears that two of the most valuable items, a guitar and amplifier head, are still at large, and Ozzy’s reward is still available upon their return.
In a press release sent out this evening, it was revealed that Randy Rhoads’ first electric guitar, a 1963 Harmony Rocket, and a prototype of his rare signature Marshall Amplifiers amp head, had not yet been returned. Pictures of the items can be found below:

Ozzy’s people have made it clear that the reward will not be issued until all of the items are safely returned.
“As you can imagine, the items that were stolen, including Randy’s first electric guitar, are irreplaceable to the Rhoads Family. I am heartbroken that these treasured physical memories of Randy and Delores have been taken from the family so I’ve decided to personally offer a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction and/or return of all stolen items.
“For information regarding the theft or return of these items please contact: Nick D’Argenzio Phone: 818-281-7893 E-Mail: [email protected]”
Nick D’Argenzio, Randy Rhoads’ nephew, issued the following statement: “We’re really thankful the Osbournes sent a message out to the community yesterday. I think that’s what spread the word further. We’re grateful to the Osbournes for helping promote the news about it.”
If you have any information, please help return these priceless items to the Rhoads family.
