    A local band's van got broken into here in Richmond, Virginia.. not sure if there's a serial number available but I'll update if it pops up.
    Shoot me a message if you have any leads or look up the band Asylum (or Ryan Zell, their bassist) on Facebook.

    Original FBtext follows:

    My bass was stolen out of our van over the weekend. 1979 peavey t-40, keep an eye out for it in music stores/pawn shops etc.
    it's got a noticeable chip on the third fret down and two chips where your arm rests on the body. Thanks.

    I'm in Eastern NC and will pop into local pawn shops as I travel. I hate a thief, music gear or not.

  4. Ouch ... I'm sorry to hear that. I live in Richmond and will keep an eye out for it. Were you doing a gig here when it was swiped?

    Thanks for looking out! I'm keeping an eye out as well, those dudes and myself live here in RVA, the van was simply parked offstreet in their neighborhood when it was broken into.

    I don't remember the names off hand but those are two different finishes. I want to say the CL one is Sienna Burst but I am probably wrong. I also think a 1979 T-40 says "patent pending" on the stock, not "Made in the U.S.A" but, again, I am probably wrong. Side note, that seems to be a good price on a clean T-40.

    Dang, good looking out- the seller's already deleted the listing, didn't get a chance to check it out while it was still up.

    Wondering if this was the bass or if it happened to just sell super fast, still keeping my eyes peeled.

    UPDATE: Apparently, this instrument was recovered a while ago. I just found this out and thought I’d share.
    I’ve had a lot of people msg me with potential leads since posting this thread, good looking out!
