    Was the spruce stacked and stickered? If so there's no way they thought it was scrap as you say. I'd file a police report if there's anything missing and if anything's damaged call the BBB on their asses.

        I bet the owner of the company would settle any damages privately if you kept the BBB out of it.

            He says they thought it was scrap wood and will return it. I'm giving them a few days. I hope they didn't damage any of it. Thin soft plates of red spruce I've been saving for years. BTW you should never barbecue with softwoods. The resin is like pine tar on your food.



            I can maybe understand mistaking tops for scrap wood if you are uneducated....but tree of life inlaied fingerboards?



            I think they thought no one wanted them and they wouldn't be missed.



            I'm going to give them a few days before going to the police.

                    I would go to the police even when they do return them. In fact I would go to the police right now.



                    If you or no one else in your household were informed that they took that stuff, newsflash, that's theft. Even IF it were crummy scrap wood, it's still your property.



                    I would call the police, if only to teach them a lesson. You can't take whatever the hell you want.



                    I don't know if you got angry over it, but I would be fuming if I were in your position. I would demand they bring them back immediately or else press charges. "I thought it was scrap wood" is no excuse.

                        I can always go to the cops in a day or two. I'm giving them a chance to make right. The foreman didn't seem to know about it. He's claiming that they are just ignorant laborers. Thank God I got the Brazilian rosewood sets out of there along with all the mahogany necks.



                        I can understand MAYBE thinking that way about the spruce but not the inlaid ebony pieces. Those were in a very high cabinet above the kitchen stove.

                            So, in other words, they actually had to look inside of cabinets to find the fret boards? I think I'd take an inventory of everything in the house. Hell only knows what else they put the snatch on that you don't even know about yet!

Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention my ocarina and maracas.

                                Yeah - I'd call the cops to get the stuff back, not just wait for them to decide what to return, or take off...
