    There’s a special place in hell for people who steal from musicians..

    I hope you get your gear back. There are a few popular Facebook Bass related pages you might want to join and post.

  2. I’d visit or phone the pawnshops within a 50-100 mile radius if possible if I were you.

    I'll keep an eye out here in the Orlando area... I love shell pink Fender style basses and scour the local used market regularly, so if it's around, I will pick up its scent and go into frenzy mode, followed by immediately-getting-in-touch-with-you mode

    You may look into the Pawnbroker's Association for maybe some help as far as getting it listed there as stolen?

    A guy I used to work for had a bad experience and used this association for some help...

    One (of many) significant negative aspects of this is- that is some "pricey" stuff! Someone may take that for many miles away to "fence" it... Not good but posting it here is a good thing!!

    Having worked for several years in the pawn industry (this is just one way out of many to sell things), it is not super efficient in documenting items brought in. Yes, each day we would submit a police report of items pawned or purchased. If someone were to remove the serial on that bass and the name- the report would say: electric bass and possibly say it was pink (if it were to be purchased by a former co-worker of mine, having the serial intact, the serial number would almost certainly be entered in incorrectly)... It is pretty dismal. In addition, the report stays local. If it were sold to a pawn shop out of a given region, the odds drop drastically for its recovery. I dearly hope you get your stuff back!!

    Hate seeing stuff like this, can't believe people sometimes. I hope you are able to get your bass and gear back soon. I have a Shell Pink Moollon P almost exactly like that on order due in a few months... I'll keep my eye out!

    My initials are also inside the neck, so there's no chance of not knowing if it's mine, but I'll give that a try! Thanks!

    Street cameras are probably under city public works or dept. of transportation. It'll take some calls and legwork, but it's worth a shot.

    Sorry to hear that, good luck.

    Dammit that just sucks... nice-looking pair, too. Definitely make a police report, but don't expect them recover it... hate to be the bringer of bad news, but stolen articles like that are rarely recovered by the police. So if you hope to recover, you need to make it your own crusade.

    Get the word out on Facebook & Twitter, watch Craigslist, eBay & Reverb, and notify the studios, pawn shops, and used music instrument dealers in the area.

    I do hope you find it soon!

    @Brad L Cannata I've had a bass stolen in the ATL area when I lived there, it was recovered 14 months later with the help of social media, folks on TB & the DEKALB POLICE. I’m sure you have already mentioned this to Kevin Scott and other cats there. Moollons aren’t super common, reach out to the GA Pawn Desk or have the detective assigned to your case reach out to them.
