This is from FB...please any of you in the NE keep a lookout for it.

Never mind...this new forum software makes it impossible to post a screenshot I saved from FB.

 

You should be able to just drag it into the text entry box if it is a standard format image file...

How can somebody try and sell something that unique and identifiable?

That truly sucks.  Whoever stole it can't be too smart, because the instrument is so unique.

Just now, Hoddy said:

Drag it from where to where?

From whatever location you have it stored on your computer, straight into the box where you enter in text for a post. Grab the icon for the image, drag it into the box, and the forum software will upload it and insert it into the message / post automatically in just a few seconds, depending on the image size and your connection speed.

There may be one or more individuals in law enforcement who could take special interest in this case.

I tried that... didn't work. 

Same here.  Dragging the URL into the box only started the video on its own page; however, dragging it in the dialog box worked.  See above.

What OS and browser are you using?

I found that Firefox was the reason I couldn't view stuff like pics and video links here, and at my online banking site.  

Never thought of that, but I switched to Safari and everything works as it should.  I will probably need to reload Firefox to see if that fixes it.

Well, yes and no. The Fender Custom Shop has made them for other people.

Windows 10 and Firefox.

Do you have any other browsers loaded?  As I said earlier, a similar problem with me was based in Firefox.  I don't even know if Internet Explorer still comes with Windows, but it's worth a try with another browser like IE, Safari or Chrome.

I'd bet that Junior's is still pretty much one of a kind, and that there would be little scars from use that he could identify.  The Custom Shop ones would have regular Fender serial numbers, too.

Junior told me at a show in Texas a couple of yeas ago that he had 2 made but gave one away few years ago to a friend. Can't remember who to.

I remember reading in Guitar Player many years ago that he had 2 made. I hope the thief one day realizes that he/she is nothing but a giant douche.
