    I believe a stolen gear forum would be an awesome addition to TDPRI. I have no time for gear thieves.

    Birch is a legend.

    The cutting off of a hand is appropriate punishment for a thief. I'll be happy to swing the axe.

    Thieves suck. I had an office break in at my church last October. Lost three guitars and some other small gear.

    There is this one. http://www.stolenguitarregistry.com/ But it's a registry, not a forum.

    Did you "drunk post" that or are you prepared to defend your statement? Because if you drunk posted it, I'll let it go. :D

    YES I'll defend my statement: Birch is a legend!

    I think you may have the wrong John Birch in mind. Have a drink of grape juice and think it over.

    The John Birch I have in mind is the guy from the UK that built many famous guitars.

    Here's Dave Hill of Slade with his Super Yob, built by Birch in the early 70s.

    I didn't know that John Birch was a guitar maker. He may have been very good, but that "Super Yob" is just ugly IMO.

    I thought this thread would be about the John Birch Society, named for the officer considered to be the first American casualty of the "cold war".
