Roland Cazimero, the guitar playing half of the legendary musical duo The Brothers Cazimero, died earlier this month. He was 66.
The missing instruments include a 12-string guitar with spruce top and Kauai koa top, back, sides and neck, and a 12-string white Ovation guitar.
Cazimero, with his older brother Robert, made a huge mark on modern Hawaiian music. The two won numerous Na Hoku Hanohano awards, and for more than a decade, served as the resident band at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel's Monarch Room.
In January 2000, they performed a sold out show at Carnegie Hall.
And six years later, The Brothers Cazimero were inducted into the Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame.
The brothers also made a host of TV appearances and their songs -- from "My Sweet Pikake Lei" to "At Home in the Islands" -- have served as a soundtrack for a generation in the islands.
