    I figured that while I am posting about my Sting bass that got stolen last week, I would repost my previous loss of my USA Custom Guitars 51 P / Tele bass.

    The Sting bass features:
    • chrome removed from all hardware
    • body refinished with nitrocellulose lacquer
    • bridge cover and holes where pickup cover was installed
    • neck is sanded down with vintge amber tint on the headstock
    • "Sting" inlay has been removed and my initials "SFB" painted on the 12th fret
    • Custom leather strap with initials "SFB" was in the Fender gig bag when the bass was stolen

    Long story short is that the Dallas PD caught the guy, and he still had our stuff. Dude made a confesson, and told the cops where everything (bass and 2 fiddles, from the Dallas robbery) was.

    I wish that the SAPD could have stumbled upon all the other stuff..
