George Clinton's Guitarist

I'm FUNK'D Without My

STOLEN Instrument

The guitarist for George Clinton's famous Parliament-Funkadelic band says she's desperate to get her custom shredstick back after it was stolen last week -- and her HEALTH depends on it!!

Shaunna Hall tells TMZ ... the $5,000 guitar (pictured above) was stolen from the P-Funk tour bus, in Memphis, on August 5. But what REALLY sucks is ... the instrument was specifically designed to accommodate a painful physical affliction she sustained after a bad accident last year.

Hall says her neck and shoulder were injured in the accident -- and ever since the incident, traditional wood guitars are simply too heavy for her to play for several hours at a time.

We're told the custom guitar is made from carbon fiber -- weighing a mere 4.5 pounds -- which puts less stress on her sensitive neck and shoulder ... helping her endure performing a full concert.

Shaunna tells us -- she'll DEFINITELY offer a reward to anyone who returns the guitar ... no questions asked.

4.5lbs is very light for a guitar. A Fender Strat, a favorite of funk players, weighs between 6 and 8lbs.

"Doesn't she have insurance? "

It's not that simple. It takes months to have a custom guitar made, and she's accustomed to that particular guitar.

Shredstick? Really? (cringe) You do know a shredstick is a SKATEBOARD, right? On occasion, it's a SURFBOARD.

Nice axe and I would hate to think that some tard will sell it or has sold it for $10 bucks. Always have security around the tour bus. That's Road Dog 101.
