    It was found leaning against a fence. A women (a Nurse) thought someone had left it and that it may be important, so she took it in and made some flyers that only said: "If you lost something, call me". A friend of the owner saw the flyer and gave it to him.

    Thank you...

    I hope all the people who rag on the people in NY see this. :) There are lots of great people in this awesome city.

    Thanks for a great story. Happy you got your bass back.

    I've a feeling you would have gotten it back pretty quickly had this not happened too. Not loke you're looking for sunburst P bass. :) I'd spot that thing if it were 2 clubs away from where I was playing.

    I did the same thing one night in Queens when I was living in NY. Locking up church and left my bass leaning on the wall. A nice person saw it and return it to me the next Sunday service. So we're both blesses.
