. . . is a sure fire way to reserve a place in hell! My pearly white Fender P-Bass w/ hardshell case was stolen many moons ago. I feel the pain! It's not just the $, though The Domino Kings have a lost a great deal- thank goodness they had the forsight to record their serial #'s, smart thinking, now all the Kops have to do is find the creeps. Not to be disturbingly ultraviolent, but we should think of a fitting punishment for instrument thieves, like being castrated and forced to walk nude in public, or make them newscasters with Fox! or. . . ?

Though I'm in San Diego, I work for a musical instrument manufacturer and I'll forward this around the office. Doesn't take much to get us riled up and spreading this info to every dealer in Texas!

Without thieving instruments, would the punk scene have ever thrived in the late 70's? Most all of them admit to having thieved a few instruments and amps here and there. Of course, that could be a little creative story telling to increase the aura. It sounds a hell of a lot better than my mom gave me the money for my Rickenbacker bass on my 20th birthday.

Yeah, but Pete Townshend said he stole 'em off the wall of a music store, not from another band....
