    The MERMEN, one of my favorite bands from S.F. had their ENTIRE U-Haul trailer stolen outside the Flamingo Hotel/ Casino in Las Vegas last week. EVERYTHING, including basses, guitars, amps, effects racks, drums and lighting were taken. Most of the gear is one-of-a-kind custom stuff and very easy to identify. PLEASE be on the lookout in the Vegas area and beyond. Here's a link to their website with detailed info.

    Ouch.

    I'd say that I'd be on the lookout, but I'm about 2500 miles away.

    Besides being here in Vegas, I'm an incurable Pawn Shoppe Junkie. I sent an email to their management to see if they could send me some serial #s so I could keep an eye out for their gear.

    Im in Az and will keep an eye out. Sorry this happened. Were it legal and I caught them, I'd cut off thier fingers and mail them to you! Just kidding but thats how I feel. Hope you get your gear back. Loved my 1972 SVT rig. It was a bear to lug put well worth it. Haven't had a rig since that's been quit like it ever!
    GOOD LUCK
