December of 2003, my Carvin BB76 was stolen from my house in Orlando. At that time the band house had real strict HOA rules and we had to keep our trailer in the garage, which was terrible because the trailer was 2 inches taller than the garage door. When ever we had to move it in or out of the garage we had to deflate the tires. Not Fun. So this idiot walks in the garage..as we are loading it...and grabs my bass and a guitar. He waited for us to go back inside for more gear. BY the way this was at 3 in the afternoon. Thats guts. He then ran next door and stole some more stuff. Long story short. He pawned the guitar and was caught. However, my bass was gone. He sold it for drugs. The bass was not insured. Total loss. A month ago the boss (wife) calls and tells me I have a check for $57.12 from the Florida Department of Corrections. This guy is paying me back the value of the instrument in installments. I miss that bass, but there is some justice in the world.
