Ahhh....I'm so irritated at the moment.
I was browsing around on Souq.com (Dubai's equivalent of Ebay) and I see an Ibanez RG370DX....the very guitar that was stolen from me 3 years ago when playing a gig with my Ska band, The Sparkplugs. That guitar was my first "good" guitar, and I wanted an Ibanez ever since I started playing. I waited three years for that guitar.
AHHHH! So frustrating...but then, my story is nothing compared to what's going on with Strung Out right now...http://www.strungout.com/news.php
Have any of you guys had your stuff stolen?

my guitar was stolen before the gig even starts and it was my only 7string. We did build up the set in the pub one day before the gig and when I came back for the gig my guitar wasn´t there anymore. The pub owner apologies a few times but I´ve never saw my guitar anymore sad.gif

I had my gig bag stolen many years ago, I was on my way to rehearsal and was busting for the loo so stopped in some services quickly (stupid really looking back) I had my guitar and amp in the boot of the car and my gig bag was behind the driver seat, I was gone literally 5 mins, when I came back my car had been broken in to in that time they`d managed to rip out the car stereo and had taken my gig bag with all my pedals, leads etc, fortunalty they hadnt gone into the boot!

Back in California, someone somehow got into the band room at my school sometime at night (that's a lot of somes... laugh.gif) and got away with a Marshall stack, a wah-wah pedal, all kinds of stuff! It was both the school's gear and some students', it was pretty bad.

How ironic if it were the guys who got their bicycle tires slashed by the sound guy that stole strungout's van. mellow.gif

And that really sucks about your guitar... I'm guessing you're rather ...upset.., I know I would be.

When you say the very guitar you had stolen, is the one on ebay your exact one? or just the same model guitar. If it is the one you had stolen perhaps you could report it to the website or authorities or something? smile.gif

i had my gear stolen at my second ever gig! just bought a new guitar 2 weeks beforehand (it was only £85 but sounded brilliant).
i had that stolen, a fender strat (mexican), my gig bag with lyrics/leads/a couple of pedals in.

what makes it worse was that the gig was for charity... someone stole over £500 worth of gear from my second ever gig, which was a charity gig in which we made around £300.
