    Okay -

    This was stolen from my church about 9 months ago. I have no pics (and probably no chance of recovery.) It was a USA custom guitars Jay jr. body (red sparkle burst over quilt maple) with Bart J pickups, an aguilar OBP-1 pre, and a Moses jazz neck. Black Hipshot American Classic tuners, graphite nut, Black Dunlop Straplocks, black Leo Quan BAII bridge. Not too many basses like it I would guess.

    Anyone seen it??

    Also had a three way switch installed for bypass/active/mute.
    And a 9v battery box.

    Found. Just purchased it back after spotting it on ebay. The seller was unaware of it's hot status - he had bought it in January over the Bay. He was very understanding, and took less $ than I was offering to get it back to it's rightful owner. WOOHOO... :hyper:

    Yep - Contacted the guy who sold it to him.... He had it for about a year. Bought it used from a Music store in Alton, IL. I'm contacting the store to see if they have a record of who traded it in /sold it.

    Funny thing is, the guy in IL who had it played in a festival I ran the sound system for last summer. He was using it as his backup, and it never left the case... So close, yet so far. :eek:
