This is quite the sob story: this evening, I park my vehicle in downtown Providence, RI and go see a concert. Upon returning to my vehicle, I see that my window is smashed and my 1988 Ken Smith 5-string was stolen. Needless to say, I'm in a panic. My band leaves for tour tomorrow (we're always away, so I can't even scour the city for the perpetrators!) I'm flat broke (we make just enough money to live on, and none more!) so i don't know what to do. I have a few questions that hopefully some of you could help me on: 1. Have any of you had a bass stolen and been able to receive insurance $$ for it? 2. Is anyone selling a Ken Smith bass, or know where I could find a used one for around $1500? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Lesson learned: do not let this happen to you! I even covered the bass with a blanket. Always keep your bass on you at all costs! never leave it in the car!
