UPDATED: 3-14-2004


I need your help. On the 22nd of Feb. I stored all of my instruments at E-Z Storage in Chatsworth. I left on a business trip a couple of days later. I returned 2 days ago, and today went to the storage room. Someone had picked the lock and every one of my instruments, EFX, recording gear, PA system and stereo system has been stolen. This was an accumulation of 30 years of working, collecting, playing and loving each one. To say I'm devastated, would minimize how I feel. I have lost everything. I've made a police report, but you know how that can go. Would you be so kind as to post a note, or send a message to our constituents. Many of our mutual friends would recognize some of my instruments, specially my '73 Telcaster Deluxe with the 3 pickups and the palm pedals on the 'G' & 'B' strings. Anything you might do would be much appreciated. I am attaching a list of the stolen items. Thanks for your help.
