I know this is a long shot, but my bass was stolen back in the first week of October of 2009 on the south side of Albuquerque, New Mexico. I had borrowed it to a friend who was moving to LA and it was stolen out of the back of his moving truck along with a 5-string Fender Banjo. Bass was a 01' or 02' MIM Fender J- Bass, white with red tortoise shell pick guard w/ hard shell Fender case. The bass was in excellent shape with no major blemishes. If you happen to have seen one in the area drop me a line. It has already been replaced, it was just a bummer to have it go that way. Very, very luckily his 80's MIA Strat and legit ES-335 were left in the truck.
