Yes, as previously discussed.

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=15060

The only thing I'll add is that apparently they were taken during the precise time that the band's gear manager was visiting us picking up two new guitars that are going on the tour, to spare the originals. How ironic!

I thought the same... He lost a classic, but got two modern classics within the same time period!

Good news: now retrieved. Dumbo the security guy actually tried to sell one of these gems for $250 at a Hollywood pawn shop...

I wonder if the security guard took this opportune, precise time to carry out the hoist! Hard to believe but maybe you were part of the decoy Mr Hall.
While the Manager is distracted at Ric, the thief makes his move.
