    This was a suggetsion brought up by another user named ThunderPig, in the basses forum, and I thought it was a great idea. Here is his post.



    I think It would be great to have a forum like this, and Im sure others would agree.

    Here is a link to his thread so you can follow the progres of it:

    Again, I would like to state that this was not my idea, but I was just bringing it to your attention to show my support for it.

    Peace

    I agree also. Having been a recent victim of theft, and losing over $5000 worth of possessions, I think it would be real cool if this helped somebody get their gear back.

    But seriously tho. If I could catch up to that thief i'd show em that the bass aint' the only thing that could use a good slappin'. I really HATE people like that.

    So it sounds like we might be weing this forum in the future?

    Its a little more extreeme to mandate this, but I think itd be great if we also had a bass and amp registry where we could list our bass (or amp), a short description (color woods) and serial numbers.

    Its a great resource to help ensure the saftey of our gear.

    Peace

    Hi. I'm the guy who posted the thread about a forum dedicated to recovering stolen gear over in the basses forum. A member named Nick was wise enough to transfer it over here so it could be read by the powers that be. I posted a reply to that thread and I'd like to bring it over here too because it explains what I had in mind about how such a forum might work, but I'm too lame to do it. If any member could bring it over here, I'd be grateful. Thanks, T-Pig.

    musicians need to use "All-Risk" musical instrument plan

    insurance specifically for your gear - remember a lot of gear is not insurable under homeowner's policies because it is for business use

    just my $.02

    I can not seem to catch embellisher away from home long enough to give this thief thread a proper testing.

    Now with news that an MTD was stolen from Mike at NAMM I think its worth really considering this forum.

    Here's a link to the thread on the subject:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&postid=821476#post821476

    I think having a clearly designated forum specifically for the reporting and recovery of missing gear would be a great help in alerting others.

    Peace
