Our office got broken into at work last night. They took 10 computers/laptops and a bunch of monitors.

They also stole 2 of my guitars that I keep at the office to practice on during lunch break. One was the Epi Les Paul that I just bought a few weeks ago. sad.gif

I think the office's insurance will cover my replacement cost, but it still sucks that my guitars were taken.

That sux man.. Ages ago my boss mt-2 pedal was stolen and I still remember it.
Hopefully the financial aspect gets covered by insurance, as for the emotional attachment ... ah well ... shit happens .. buy more. I see Zakk is already excited to help you out with it wink.gif

That sucks! Nothing worse than having your stuff stolen mad.gif

My house got robbed a few years ago, before Christmas..the bastards even took all the presents that were under our tree. The good news was that somehow they missed my guitar equipment..not sure how that happened but I was thankful that they did. Unfortunately they got most everything else..thank god for insurance.

Hope it all works out.

Man, sorry to hear that. I also keep 4 guitars in 3 different places, so if one place gets robbed (or burns down) I don't lose all my guitars. Still, I think after some time you develop an emotional binding to your guitars and don't replace them as easily as underwear...

Oh man, that is really unfortunate. At least you got the insurance, so now you can buy them all over again, and shopping new guitars is always fun! smile.gif

Oh man that was bad luck sad.gif I don't know why they took guitars since they were after computers etc... But its good that you have insurance and that the cost will be covered, so you can get two guitars "back"...

Everything happens for a reason! I think this will now put you in touch with the magic guitar that you are SUPPOSED to have!

Well, the insurance claim hasn't been filed yet because we're still compiling a list of some of the office stuff that was taken. I'm not sure if I'll get the price I paid for each guitar off of craigslist or if I'll get full retail because our policy covers 'replacement cost'.

I'll definitely be getting another Les Paul though. Not sure about the bass.
