Dak Lander Posted May 25, 2004 Share Posted May 25, 2004 Damn gang, I got back for another Bonzai run to the Bay Area (sorry guys up there, it was really short notice & I didn't have time for shit other than work) & got home on Friday night. On Saturday I went to grab an axe & pick a bit only to find the case was empty and to find a total of three (3) of my guitars missing, including my main player. Long story that I won't bore you with, but, I suspected my stepson or one of his cronies, with his hekp. I filed a police report with serial numbers & descriptions (Keep a spreadsheet on your gear gang) & hoped for the best. Kinda got really lucky and have them located already. The stupid bitch that stole them, a friend of the stepson, who had stolen and sold another guitar before that I recovered, took them to a pawn shop. Her very recent husband and now soon to be ex husband called wifey this morning with the information that the bitch had said she had a key to our house and was going to get some guitars and pawn them. He didn't really believe her until things came up missing at his parent's home. So I decided to call or stop in, to all the local pawn shops. Sure enough, this evening I got the right one and they have all of my axes. The police were contacted again, another come out and called the shop to insure the guitars stayed there until I can pick them up and things are progressing. Obviously I'm going to press charges and work like hell to get the guitars without paying the hock charges. Under a hundred bucks but still, I shouldn't have to take the bitch to small claims court, the pawn shop should, to recover the money. I'll talk about that to the detective that works this kind of shit with the pawn shops. I got really lucky gang & all I can do is emphasize the need to keep detailed records of serial numbers, descriptions and pictures of all your gear and act on any and all tips you receive.
