Valenti V25FJ5 #149 Stolen in Oklahoma City!

    Hey everyone. This Valenti V25FJ5 #149 was stolen in downtown Oklahoma City (10/19/2013) from a buddy of mine. The band's entire trailer was stolen after a show in OKC (Bricktown area I believe). A lot of gear has been taken from a great group of guys, and music is their only jobs. All the gear was in a white 4"x7" cargo trailer with a small red "BA" circle decal on the back. Any info is greatly appreciated. I figure if the perpetrators try to pawn off this bass, or sell it to a used shop, it should certainly raise some eyebrows among the merchants.

    Also in the trailer was a nice Markbass rig consisting of a MB Little Mark Tube 800, a MB Standard 115, and a MB 104HLF.

    As anyone can imagine, this is quite the pro setup and was a huge investment for him. Major good Karma will be awarded to anyone who has any info, and I am sure there would be a nice compensation.

  7. Thank you for posting this gguillo! And thank you everyone for your support. I am the owner of this bass and it has been a hard time the last few days losing my whole rig, this bass, Avalon U5 and pedal board with all my pedals. I have 1 bass and a practice amp left to my name. I really appreciate you keeping an eye out if anything turns up.

    Thanks!
