    As someone that has had more than one guitar stolen, this is one area the Saudis have it right. You steal, you get your hands cut off!

    I guess it won't be showing up in Spain, and commiserations to the ex-owner, but maybe this would be a good time to remind everyone NEVER to leave anything important in an unattended car.

    If I had been intelligent enough to know that in '88 I'd still be the owner of a Martin J40!!!

    After a gig, we loaded our P.A. equipment into the back of the singer's car. It took us about 10 minutes total to load everyting. It was about 1:45am, and we walked back in to get paid. We were literally inside for about 5 minutes. We came back outside to find that every bit of the equipment was gone!

    We went back inside, and told the owner what had happened. The bouncer took off running out the door! We didn't know what was going on. About 15 minutes later, the bouncer and the Police came walking in.

    Come to find out, the bouncer took off looking around the area for the theives. He found them two blocks away at a gas station, loading the equipment from a small car, into a van. He commenced to throwing an arm-bar on one of them while fighting off the other guy. The cops saw this going down on the way to the bar, and stopped to break up the fight. One guy took off, and the other was arrested on the spot.

    Anyway, we ended up getting all of our equipment back that night. The guy that was arrested, of course, claimed that he had no knowledge that the equipment was stolen, and was only helping his friend move "his" equipment.

    Don't know what ever happened to that guy. I guess the lesson I learned from that is NEVER EVER leave your equipment un-attended. The car was locked, and literally parked 5 feet from the front door of the bar for 5 minutes.

    Whoever stole it better not try to sell it on Ebay or CL, because he has no idea of how tight knit a community we have.

    thanks guys, appreciate you all looking out. This was taken this last friday so unfortunately the one on ebay is a different guitar. I have a feeling it was a local person and will probably turn up at a pawn shop or music store in the area.
