    congrats mate
    how's the condition and how did you receive it back?
  10. Thanks! There was a small chunk of wood knocked out of the headstock and the battery cover was missing, but other than that it was in great shape. I had a setup done on it and now it plays better than before it was stolen!

    It ended up in a pawn shop about 20 miles from where I live. Someone bought it from the pawn shop and played it in a band for over a year. I think he might have joined a new band and decided to sell the bass, but didn't really know much about it. He did some research to find out and that led him to this very thread. Realizing he had unknowingly been playing a stolen bass, he contacted me. He was a really cool guy.
