It's a long shot, but I figure it wouldn't hurt. Edit: I don't have the serial , but I know it was a '98. It was stolen from my home in November '03. (I live in Dennis, MA.) As you can see in the pic, the color is a deep red (not sure of the name, almost wine red). There are a few white scratches on the back. The pictures do not show any of this, as they were taken before I bought it. The active preamp had just crapped out on me, and the bass only worked in passive mode. I was actually gonna bring it to the shop that day it was stolen... Also, it came with a hardshell case. The corner of it was cracked, and had a bit of duct tape covering it. The sad part is, I actually know who stole it. It was an (ex-) best friend from middle school. He stole the bass, among other valuables, to pay for his coke addiction. What a winner. :scowl: I don't think he went too far with it, but it probably found it's way to some pawn shop in the New England area. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. ~Hurley I've also "lost" a Music Man Sterling. There's a thread about that, too.
