    Hey all, I'm pretty new to this site, but I'm looking for some help. Last thursday morning, my King Doublebass Tigerking was stolen, (along with our van, trailer and virtually everything we own) from our hotel in downtown seattle. The bass is the only natural finish tigerstriped maple King bass in the world. the serial # on the tag inside is 000010 and it has my name (geoff firebaugh) written on it. I am offering a 500 dollar reward for its return.

    thanks for your help.

  2. Gawd, I hate stories like this...
    Good luck, Geoff. I hope you're able to recover at least the hard-to-replace stuff like your bass and the vintage drums.
    Kinda makes you wish we North Americans would adopt the middle east practice of cutting off the hand of a thief.

    What a heart-breaker. Be sure to list the bass at www.maestronet.com , they have a stolen instruments listing.
    Best of luck,
