Dragnet: Worldwide Stolen Gear Thread

Postby numberthirty on Sun Feb 19, 2012 9:40 pm

I noticed a few stolen gear threads. Seemed like an overall stolen gear thread would be a good idea. Lots of eyes in lots of different places.

Glancing over this while scrolling down, I read this as "Guy stole Tom Petty's practice space."

My friend Dan had a rather unique guitar stolen a few weeks ago that he built himself. I was on loan to Eli from Smoking Popes and it got stolen along with some other gear out of a car in the Chicago area.

It's a Lakland Jazzmaster prototype guitar - Fiesta Red, 24-fret Rosewood fretboard, and Black pickguard. Should be easy to spot with that Lakland logo on the headstock and the pickups are somewhat closer together than a traditional Fender. I don't think it had the upper "rhythm" controls but it did have an extra switch for phase. Trying to find an actual useful picture of the the guitar, until then this is all I've got.

Dan is on the right with the Lakland Jazzmaster. I'm on the left with a Fender Jazzmaster.

The man who makes music under the name SFV Acid had his gear stolen in Montreal. They took his MPC and Machine Drum, which means the years of work he had saved on those devices is now missing. If you happen to buy an MPC full of wonderfully tripped out electro, it's probably this one.

Don't have much in the way of details at the moment as the band are working out replacements etc but thought it worth getting the word out early. It's natural finish with a Bigsby and unusual black pickup covers. It seems it was taken during the club night that happened after their gig, presumably from the room they had stored the gear in overnight.

If anyone knows anything drop me message and if you're in Ireland keep your eyes peeled for it in second hand shops etc.

My friends in the band Direct Hit! had their van and gear stolen this past weekend.

http://detroit.craigslist.org/wyn/msg/4256519937.html

VAN
2003 Ford E-350. 2 rows of seats, and a wooden loft built into the back. Front bumper is a little dented in and kind of makes a Sad face. Wisconsin license plate 988-VAS. Stolen from the intersection of Michigan & Waubash in Detroit by Slows BBQ.

GUITARS

-Gibson Les Paul Custom - White finish, repaired headstock. It had tape on the strap buttons, but easily removable. Blue-ish stains in the white finish. Gibson "custom" hardcase, with a sticker of a cartoon character on it.

-Gibson Les Paul Junior - 2010, White satin finish buffed to a light shine, bad belt buckle rash, some light arm-wear. Epiphone hardcase, with "Paige Marshall" written inside the "E" of "Epiphone"

-Fender '72 Telecaster Custom RI - very beat up, 3-tone sunburst, rail humbcuker in the bridge. Input jack cavity is empty and the jack has been moved to the pickguard. Lots of finish chipping, and cracking.

-G&L SB-1 - 2-tone sunburst, black pickguard, forearm wear, other small wear spot near the strings. "Butt" strap button is broke & chipped.


AMPS

-Hiwatt "Lead 20" head w/ no labels on the back.

-Fender DeVille 4x10, some corrosion on the chrome. Amp needed repair, it worked, but didn't sustain properly.

-SWR Basic 350 (red face), the right side was bent in a little, and 1 of the 2 handles on the actual amp was broke/loose. Inside an SKB shallow plastic molded 3-unit rack case.

-Fender "Rumble" 4x10 bass cab w/ light wear.

-Avatar 2x12 cabinet (black tolex w/ wheat grill cloth) some wear... 1 celestion vintage 30 speaker, and 1 WGS speaker inside.


PEDALS

-3x Boss TU-2 tuners
-Boss "Super Overdrive"
-Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor
-Boss- GE-7 equalizer
-BBE - "Boosta Grande"


DRUMS

-Mapex 'Saturn Pro' 24" bass drum, 18", 16", and 13" toms w/ hard cases. Flat black finish.
-Yamaha gold sparkle snare drum with wooden hoops. Elvin Jones signature.

PLEASE EMAIL ME IMMEDIATELY IF YOU KNOW ANY INFORMATION. THANK YOU, DETROIT!


Apparently someone's reported that these guys already have been to one Guitar Center trying to unload stuff. If you're in Detroit and you see/hear anything, shoot me a message here or at hotshotrobot AT gmail DOT com and i'll pass word along to the band (their bassist Steve is brother to Body Futures guitarist Chris, so there's that).

THANKS!

Quick bump on this one. The Dr. hasn't mentioned if any of the gear has turned up. That being the case, it would be great if folks could keep their eyes open.
