Hi everyone, I got this off of Don Ross' Gobyfish form. It's he who is talking.
Please read, make copies, post at your local pawn shops and music stores.
Anyone of us could find ourselves in this position. I can't print what I'm thinking but.... please, please if you know another about this crime report the where abouts of the goods to Don. Then tell ME who stole it and where to find them!

Brooke Miller and I were victims of a van break-in last night in Montreal. We were on our way home from a really great tour on Canada's east coast and decided to stop for an hour in Montreal and have some dinner. We were only a short distance from the vehicle and only for a short time, but it was evidently enough time for thieves to break into the van and steal many valuable things. Please keep an eye out for these items. The guitars that were stolen are custom instruments and difficult to pawn off, but they may show up on eBay or other online auction sites. We will offer a reward for the return of anything we've
lost, no questions asked.

Please forward this information to any online forums that may prove helpful. Thanks.

Here's the list:

*GUITAR: Michael Greenfield custom G2 steel-string acoustic guitar, serial number 093, belonging to Brooke Miller. Spruce top, rosewood back and sides. Lower case "g" on the headstock. Bevelled armrest, no cutaway. K&K mic/pickup system installed (microphone visible in soundhole). Was in white Calton case with a small plaque inscribed: "Greenfield Guitars, Montreal, Canada. 514-499-1352."

*GUITAR: Marc Beneteau custom long-scale steel-string acoustic guitar, serial number 130105, belonging to Don Ross. Spruce top, cocobolo back and sides. Upper case "B" on the headstock. Bevelled armrest, no cutaway. K&K mic/pickup system installed (microphone visible in soundhole). Was in black soft gig bag with "Ring Music, Toronto" printed on the side.

*COMPUTER: Apple Macintosh 15" PowerBook G4. Serial number W8548NESSWZ, belonging to Don Ross. Silver colour. 1.67 GHz model.

*STAGE GEAR: Countryman E6 wireless headset microphone, beige colour. Sennheiser wireless transmitter & receiver units.

*IPOD: Apple 20 GB iPod, while colour. Inscribed on back: "To Don & Brooke. Many years of happiness together." (or something close to that!).

If you have information about these items, please contact Don Ross at [email protected] or Brooke Miller at [email protected]. Our voice mail is 416.520.0092. You can also contact the Montreal Police, Station 37 at 514.280.0637.

Thanks, everyone!

I had my gear stolen from me once... I was able to get one of my guitars back, my favourite one, but the amp and other guitars were never seen again. I hope you can get 'em back!!!

Ask for the "good stuff"

A friend of mine was able to reclaim one of his stolen axes by asking for the "good stuff" at a pawn shop. Apparently, the wrecks are left hanging on the wall for people to try, while anything decent is kept behind the counter and out of site.

Best of luck to you.

Check the pawn shops.

There's some kind of a "pawnshop network" so they don't get cuaght... Everyone should check at their local pawnshop , it may alreaday be far from montreal .

That really sucks . You steal , you get your hand cut off...that'S the way it should be . Everyone seems to get gear stolen at least once in his lifetime , and many great guitars were stolen and never seen again .
