I'm doing the rounds of secondhand stores in Christchurch at the moment looking for my own bass, so I'll definitely let you know if I spot these.

I'm all for people publicly saying their stolen property ended up at so and so's. Shame the buyers... I hope none of us would ever support a store that was fast and loose with buying second hand music gear.

After reading this thread last night,I went out to the shed and took photos of all my gear and recorded all the serial numbers.Most of the stuff I have owned for 10-20 years and never bothered taking any details.

Hope the stolen Bass's turn up.Will keep an eye out for you in Hawkes Bay.I would be just as devastated to loose any of my gear.

Yeah I went back and updated all mine! I also put my contact details on the inside of all the battery covers on all my basses.

A nice bass I was going to buy from local dealer in auckland wound up being advertised on www.gumtree.au after being stolen from said store. I informed the store it was up for sale - they checked it out and concurred it was the stolen bass - nothing they could do as it was 18 months - 2 years after the crime and insurance had paid up. they still had the case for it.

I'd of thought the insurance company would be even if the police weren't.

The police rang up our ex guitarist a couple of months ago and said they had found his Gibson Les Paul and that was over a year after it got stolen......the funny thing was he wasn't allowed it though because insurance had paid out. I don't know why they even rang him, it just made him angry hahaha!

I hope your guitarist has first dibs on it,after all,regardless of a claim,it is still legally his.I would want it back if it were mine.
