    That sucks. Rather unique fingerboard. Hopefully that helps.

    I can't stand a thief.
  4. I agree with @bearhart74 . That's a pretty unique instrument. It should be easy to pick out of a crowd.

    Thieving A$$hole(s). As soon as the thief appears in public, he/she will be hounded by the verbal annoyances of "Get a guitar!" and "Jaco Only Needed 4!" He/She will contact the true owner begging them to take it back.

    I know Brian personally and that is his workhorse bass. Damn shame! I'll be on the lookout for it. I have faith it will show up though. Not going to be an easy bass to sell or pawn. Brian is a real cool brother and excellent bass player. He deserves his bass back!

    Was that in the Tidewater area? My nephew lives in Virginia Beach and used to be in bands. I can send it to him.

    I emailed it to my nephew to forward to his musician friends there to keep an eye out for it.

    I feel sorry for him. I hope he gets it back and the thief is punished.

    Ouch! Can't be careful enough.
  10. Sad news indeed, but yet another timely reminder that a motor vehicle is not a secure storage for a musical instrument. Not for a minute, not an hour not overnight!! Scumbags only need a second to see your valuable stuff and BOOM it's gone!! :poop::crying:

    The bass was found, is now in police custody (as evidence.) He'll be getting it back soon.

    This was whirlwind of emotions for me while I partake in my morning throne sit. Super stoked it was resolved.

    Must have bern a pretty clueless thief.

    Bring that to a professional fence and he'll tell you (and it) to get lost. Too unique. Too easy to ID. Too easy to trace back.

    Glad it wound up in police hands and didn’t ultimately get tossed in a dumpster once who ever took it realized they were holding the proverbial hot potato.
