Bryan Adams Says Egyptian Customs Officials Defaced Vintage Guitar

According to a Facebook post, officials marked his 1946 Martin D-18 with green highlighter

Bryan Adams’ vintage guitar was defaced by Egyptian customs officials earlier this week, the singer has revealed.

“Airport customs graffiti on my 1946 Martin D-18 from Egypt,” Adams captioned an image on his Facebook page. The image shows his guitar marked by green highlighter marker.

However, the “Summer of 69” singer doesn’t seem to be too upset about the matter; he took to Facebook two days later and assured everyone the guitar “will be fixed no problem.”

“TO ALL MY EGYPTIAN FRIENDS: Thank you for writing about the guitar, I really appreciate it, it will be fixed no problem,” he wrote. “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. Much love to you all and look forward to bringing my family to visit you one day soon….next time no green markers please!”

Other photos on the social-media platform show Adams performing in front of the Sphinx of Giza.
