Victor Bailey's Bass . . . Recovered?


Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone.


I was looking through a past issue of Bass Player Magazine (January '03, I believe), and noticed a little snippet about Victor Bailey's own personal Signature Fender being stolen. Was the bass ever recovered? Was the culprit ever found?

It may still be floating around Houston.....



[newsflash from BP Mag]

And indeed it was still in Houston. After changing hands a couple times, once to the tune of $119 from a pawn shop, Victor has it back.

So you won't play in public with anything but the cheapest thing you own for fear of it being stolen? Wouldn't you want to put your best foot forward?


If you're worried about your instrument getting stolen, get it insured so you will be covered if it's lost.


Go visit the websites of Music Pro Insurance or Clarion Musical Instrument Insurance and get your gear covered. The company will pay you the replacement cost if the instrument is stolen, and they may even be able to help you get it back.


My insurance on all my gear costs me around $100 a year. It's worth it.
