At a benefit show no less! I was playing an outdoor show. Pre-stage (what little there was of it) was right by the stage, around a corner. The whole area was fenced in. After our set, my blood sugar dropped immensely. I went inside the pub (we got shafted with the outdoor stage) to eat with my girlfriend. The rest of the band told me they were going to load up the stuff. I was riding home with the drummer. I don't know why (must have been really hungry), but I assumed that he would take my stuff with him. Should have double checked He had previously told me that my amp was going home with the singer. I came out after eating and saw my amp still there -- no biggie, we loaded it into the singer's car and he brought it by the next morning. Got in the car with the drummer, and he took me and my girlfriend to her home. Before we got out of the car, I asked him to bring the bass to practice and he said OK. Show up to practice today and nobody has it or any knowledge of where it is. Everybody said somebody was carrying a different guitar until we just come to accept that nobody had mine... so we called the Pub back and asked to speak to a manager... nobody found it. The pub is in the heart of one of the worst crime districts in the state. The city has the highest murder rate in the US, or very close. I've talked to everybody I could reach at the show, I've reached out to a Facebook group of musicians in my city (about 480 people), I've talked to friends, and I was in the process of filing a police report until he realized he never asked my age and you have to be 18 to file a report.... It's a very unique Ibanez BTB, probably a 445 or similar. I say very unique because I bought it used, and whoever owned it before me had refinished it to an all natural wood look. I have the serial number, but am wary about posting it here unless it will help anybody. We're still trying to get on the phone with the Sheriff's Office to get my parents to file a report... I've checked Craigslist to see if it pops up. Should I post a Craigslist ad stating that it's lost/possibly stolen? What else can I do to try and get it back? As soon as we get the report filed, it'll go out to pawn shops and such. Actually, just got filed while I was writing... will post a Craigslist ad in both Musical Items and Lost & Found. You can see pictures of me with it here: The Magistrate | Facebook I really love the guys who are trying to rejuvenate my musical scene... there's already talk of starting a collection or a benefit show just to replace my lost/stolen bass! Our music scene really sucks, but people like that make it shine. in all likelihood, I'll end up borrowing a bass from somebody until we can save up enough from the band budget to get a new bass. Keep an eye out for it, if you would? It's not likely to travel far from Jacksonville, Florida though.
