Bass stolen along with other gear PHILADELPHIA PA
Last week our practice place here in Philly was broken into. Luckily, since we had a lot of redundancies built into locking the place up, it was difficult for the perpetrators to get away with a lot of gear. They ended up stealing my bass (Schecter Stiletto Custom 5), my backup guitar (Washburn 7 string) and my guitar player's guitar (6 string Schecter Hellraiser). I've been to every pawn shop around me (I'm in the far northeast, there's not a lot of them here), and I've scoured all the online sites looking for people who are selling them to no avail. Filed a police report the day of, but I know that usually doesn't amount to anything.
Here's the defining characteristics of my bass...It was the satin clear finish model that has the flame maple top and mahogany back with a dark accent line, satin gold hardware. The finish is worn off and slightly gouged between the pickups from playing. There is a dark knot in the maple on the back of the neck between the stringers, I'd say about where the 6th fret is. There's some dents on the lower back under the arm rest that was made by a heavy chain. You can see the pattern of it. I also installed a 9 volt battery clip inside the cavity.
The 7 string washburn was a cheapo model, metallic red, hadn't been played in forever so there might be rusty strings/bowed neck.
My guitarist's guitar was satin black with bat inlays. The back of the guitar had buckle rash. Guitar also has the Zakk Wylde pickup kit installed, which it normally doesn't come with. Look for amateur solder points (I did the work). Sometimes only one pickup gives you output.
I know I haven't posted here in forever, but whatever help you guys could offer, I'd greatly appreciate it.
