    I just read about it in the basses forum.
    I'm very sorry for your lost. I don't know how I would feel if my Lecompte was stolen.
    Good luck.

    Wow, that's a complete drag :(

    Hopefully it'll turn up .... that's a distinctive looking bass and isn't exactly going to blend in with the generic-looking bass crowd. Hope the recovery is quick .... :cool:

    I don't usually like to wish harm on people but if whomever took that were to get hit by a truck I think that would be just fine.

    Best of luck on getting it back, it's gorgeous.

    Thanks guys... Here are some add'l specs on it:
    2007 Benavente SCD 5 string bass
    Flamed Redwood Top
    34 inch Scale

  7. That bass is gorgeous.

    Real sorry for your loss, but that bass is one of a kind and if the bastard tries to sell it online it'd be found quick, one would hope.


    How exactly did it get stolen? Were you loading up and them walked away for a sec?

    Awe, man! That sucks. I'm hurtin' for you. I've seen it in person so if it finds itself making it's way down I-10 I'll know what to look for.
     
  9. OMG, that really, really sucks. i cannot imagine how bad that must be. I saw your craigslist add and was just floored.

    It's a beautiful and unique instrument, so it should be difficult for them to unload, especially around here. We'll be on the look-out. Here's to hoping it finds it's way home soon (where it belongs).

    That must really suck, i've never even seen a expensive bass and by seeing it (not even looking at the name/model can tell that it is a bass worth breaking knees for (not condoning the breaking of knees in any way))

    You should put a ad in the paper saying Paying XXXX amount (3 times what you paid) for the bass and see if the stupid burgler will see it and call, then get the address go over there with a few buddise and proceed to kick the......call the police.

    Brad,

    I put the bass back in the car during a set break, due to limited space on that gig, all members have to put cases and gig bags in cars (since I had one bass with me, the other one was in the Dbl-bag)... Granted, I have an alarm, tinted out windows and there was a narrow window of oppt'y. The thieves smashed the window, grabbed CD's and Palm Pilot and Bass in bag.

    here's a link to rest of the description and contact info:

    I feel awful for you. It's like everything just got real silent. I'm in another state, but I will absolutely keep an eye out for it online.

    I hope for the best.

    Check ebay. The thief will probably try to sell it there.
    Sorry for your loss.

    I can't imagine the pain you must be feeling. I will keep an eye out for it. As a suggestion make sure you post a reward and picture in the area it was stolen. I am sure they told others what they have done and when there friends and associates see the bass and reward they may call and turn him in. I am truly sorry for what you are experiencing now.

    What kind of idiot would steal such a thing as this? It is so distinctive that no one could use it on stage anywhere near where you are (and with forums like this, potentially anywhere at all) without severe risk of being caught.

    Did you post the serial number? I didn't see it in either thread; maybe I just missed it.
