If you’re gonna be stealing something via concealment in your trousers, a guitar is probably not the way to go…

DE QUEEN, Ark. — The guitar-shaped bulge in Morgan Conatser’s clothing tipped off a music store owner that there might be a crime in progress. Clifton Lovell, owner of Guitars and Cadillacs on U.S. Highway 71 in De Queen, was talking with a customer last week when he saw Conatser, 29, walking out of the store.
“I saw him walking out to his pickup truck and the bulges in his leather jacket. I said, ‘Hey what have you got there,'” Clifton Lovell said.
He said Conatser, 29, replied, “Nothing.”
Lovell pointed toward the unnatural shapes in Conatser’s jacket and pants and said, “You’ve got something.”
Conatser then removed a solid body electric guitar from his pants leg and from underneath his jacket.
“The neck of the guitar was almost down to his knee and the back of the guitar was almost up to his neck. It wasn’t hard to spot. There was no way he could sit down or get into the pickup,” Lovell said.
At least it wasn’t a Flying V.
