Glad to hear that some guitars managed to find their way back to you.
So long and thanks for all the fish!

Gary, I'm glad to hear you got the Blackstar recovered. I hope it works out chasing the ones listed on the estate sale on e-bay.

This needs to be pulled ASAP.

Good news on the recovery of a few instruments Gary. This goes to show what a great thing a registry is, especially when someone like Brian keeps a very close eye on what's going on.

Kudos to him and everyone else who is keeping a vigilant watch here...

I have been working with the detective on the case on getting the Bunker. It unfortunately doesn't have a serial number, but I have sufficient photographic evidence to prove that it is my stolen one.

I did recover the Ryder.

Is the eBay seller aware it is stolen?

I messaged him last night and he replied claiming he's unaware it was stolen.
Watch those teeth, Marlin. I'm not sure we've properly sedated the beast . . .

I know you meant well Matt but this is not advisable... could just make it go underground. Best to let Gary or his cops handle it.

Copy that, thanks Jason.

I appreciate the effort, but we need to let the police run through all avenues before notifying the seller or eBay. :) 8)

The '75 4001S WHT WT was spotted on eBay by a sharp-eyed Forumite:

I have notified the detective on the case. :)

The Lace Cybercaster was sold by an Anaheim "auction house" and is in the hands of another victim in the chain who has contacted me.

I compared your original post to the list of guitars that were listed at the auction and saw several that are yours. Have you/the police, managed to get any of them back for you? The last I knew, on the 22nd the UPS Store on Tustin had picked up the Lace and another item from the auction house. Despite several calls to the UPS Store and voice mails left with Irvine PD, I can't get any information on the items. The auction gallery seems to be playing stupid on refunding my money. I'll keep trying but glad my research will lead to the recovery of your guitars. If you happen to need to fund more stepdaughter events please keep me in mind for the Cybercaster
