    Lots of beautiful offsets. Hope they catch these FFs. Chances are good they will, I mean how do you offload so much rare gear?

    @BorderRadio, my thoughts exactly. What the hell would you do with so many uniquely identifiable guitars and amps. Sorta' like finding a bale of Peruvian marching powder washed up on the beach. Yeah, it's quite valuable, but how would you ever convert that value into cash!

    One would think that his insurance company would have investigators on this case. Assuming, of course, that they were insured. There is probably a good chance that they will be shipped out of the country where stolen goods are harder to trace. Let's hope that the thieves are caught.

    Selling cocaine would be way easier than fencing vintage guitars. :lol:

    Yikes!
    Bummer!
    Hope and good wishes sent.
    I had a nice Les Paul stolen, years ago.
    I actually got it back, about 2 years afterwards.

    I hate thieves. Hope these get back to their rightful owners sometime.

    All that gear and no camera or alarm system? All of that unique equipment and it’s in a storage facility?
    Hmmmm

    Hmmm....

    That much gear in a storage facility.... I'm sure they could have afforded Fort Knox with the value of those so....how they heck did this happen? My cheap storage facility has cameras EVERYWHERE! In and out checks etc....Plus full insurance required...

    Inside job or the owner pulling a "fast one" my first guess....I'm sure the cops too!

    It's a shame that one of Bonamassa's bunkers were raided.

    Geesh! How the heck? So... no alarm system? Cameras? etc.?? Hard to believe all of this was stolen, but theves can be clever I suppose. Man.... you'd have to have a mighty big truck to haul all that gear away, and then what do you do with it? I'd be checking pawn shops all over town, 50 mile radius, and would be checking on them regularly. I'd also be checking the internet every day. There's no way some of this stuff isn't going to pop up somewhere, just a matter of time.

    Good lord, that's a lot of stuff!

    Stolen sometime between Sept 24 and Dec 23...guess he didn't check on his stuff very often!

    Nope, he didn't check. It wasn't done in one day either. It's likely a few were taken first and then the place was watched. Seeing that nothing was happening, they took all the rest with little fear of being seen. Seems odd actually.

    It is “Broken English” comments like like this that make me wish there was a Dislike Button.

    As far as punishment to the perpetrators goes, hanging does not seem harsh enough. Maybe Castration first then dragging followed by hanging.

    My first thought. You keep hundreds of thousands of dollar of irreplaceable vintage equipment at a storage facility? Something fishy is going on.

    i dont think thats even enough
    first we need to slowly torture them and put them on the brink of starvation and then castrate them
