Sprucehill Guitars Aluminum Hollowbody Telecaster Resonator #0018

This guitar was stolen from me back in April 07. The thief was caught and confessed to stealing it! He said he sold it to a Pawn Shop on Westheimer Rd. there in Houston. We have not been able to locate it yet but I'm hoping that you nice people in Houston will keep an eye out for it or maybe you have even seen it around. It's built for playing out live. Very flashy! I waited 13 long months for it and I hit some hard times and I sold it or at least I thought I sold it for $3089.28. The cashiers check was a fake but I had already cashed the check 3 weeks prior when I found out is was fake. So I owe that money too!
It has 2 outputs,1 for acoustic and 1 for electric. You could sound like 2 guitars at once or play one or the other. It's #0018 of 25 from Sprucehill Guitars.

Emerald Green Parker Fly Guitar, Marshall Amp, Boss GT3, TL Audio Tube Mic Preamp, Alesis Quadra Synth Plus Piano, Violin w/ pearl inlay flower, plus more studio gear.

I am looking for the following equipment which belongs to me. I've been told that it was either donated or sold by an old lady in San Jose or a guy in Sunnyvale sometime around November or December 2006 or just after.

All of this equipment is STOLEN PROPERTY, which legally belongs to me and I am willing to negotiate and reimburse payment for any or all of it's safe return!!

Emerald Green Parker Fly Deluxe - had a black and white zebra strap and was in a soft guitar case w/wammie bar, glass slide and capo. Copy of the manual printed out was also in case. Guitar has (had) a pretty bad nick out of it from where my abusive ex tried to hit me with a mic stand and hit my parker instead.

- Small Marshall Amp

- Boss GT3

.. Really great free standing Rack on wheels with the following equipment:

- TL Audio Tube Mic Preamp ** This is a very rare item and very important to me
- 3630 compressor
- Studio Quad Effects
- RA100 Amp
- Mackie 1202vlz Mixer - had some stickers on it I think one was about being a motorcycle rider and voting
- Berringer (I think) Patch bay I had put labels on it for my equipment
- Headphone mixer

Alesis Quadra Synth Plus Piano had a key with a hole (abusive ex hit it with a tile knife) and had some intermitent problems with middle keys.

Violin w/ pearl inlay flower

Studio Projects C1 Microphone

Clarinet - black, vintage and needed work

CUSTOM MADE CABLES WHICH HAVE MY NAME ON THEM - these should be easy to identify unless the name has been removed. If it has then there will likely be a sticky area on one end near the connector. Many different cables all custom made for me to fit my specific needs. The longer ones have a black tie attached to them for wrapping them.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!! If you have seen ANY of this equipment or cables contact me IMMEDIATELY! I've been searching for it. Please help me locate these items of great value to me. NO QUESTIONS ASKED AS I KNOW WHO ORIGINALLY STOLE THE EQUIPMENT AND I AM JUST TRYING TO GET MY PROPERTY, ESPECIALLY MY INSTRUMENTS, BACK

CB Glockenspiel, Ghanian Gyil Wood Bars, Mallets, Casiotone 1000P

These instruments were stolen from my car on White and Varet. I'm so sorry my college car sucks and is easy to break into, and I'm sorry I was too friggin tired to take them out of my car after driving across the country and crashing on my friend's couch without moving the truckload of heavy instruments up her 5 story loft before taking a nap and dying after driving straight to bushwick from Chicago. If you find them, I will give you a reward, no questions asked. They were stolen from the trunk of my car on 10/14, and the latter items on 10/23.

40 pairs of vibraphone mallets, by pro mark, stefon harris model. 20 of them are gray, 20 are red mallets.

a 2.5 octave CB glockenspiel, in a case, with a stand, mallets, ghanaian shakers, and a patch cable.

Ghanaian Gyil wood bars, 14 bars strung together, ghanaian rosewood, authentic from ghana.

Casiotone 1000P vintage tone bank, nice new condition, perfect arpeggiator.
Music stand, cables, camera, and clothes.
2 suitcases, with night mouthguard in one and prescription meds in other. Please give it back. Your teeth wont fit my guard, and you don't need my meds. I DO. Your not going to sell them. You've just been blessed with the karmic asshole curse. forever. Unless someone can redeem you and bring me my instruments back. You don't need pitched percussion instruments either, I DO.

Whoever stole my stuff, you suck. Please give it back. If you see anyone handling these items, please hit me up, I will appreciate you for LIFE.

Left Handed Fender Japanese P Bass Lake Placid Blue Gotoh Tuners Mint Green Pickguard

This is a RARE LEFT HANDED FENDER JAPAN PRECISION BASS in LAKE PLACID BLUE, maybe one or two like it in The U.S.! Stolen from my home in Reno, Nevada on 10/25/07

I purchased this bass from The Ishibashi Corp. in Japan, in August 2007. I didn't write down the serial #. I DO have the invoice, and have e-mailed them a request to see if the serial is on file. I have upgraded this bass with Gotoh reverse wind tuners, and an allthread bridge like on the American re-issues. It has also had Fender American 250k pots, and a Switchcraft jack installed. The clincher here to identify it as mine- even munus a serial #- I am a luthier/guitar repairman. I fabricated a mint green pickguard for it. You can't get one, I know. It has a full tin vintage type grounding plate underneath it, with a statement something like- "Ishibashi p-bass mint green guard fabricated by owner Dave Edwards" with a date-- written in Sharpie. Not another bass like it, I'd say! I hope it turns up, I'd like to have it back! There is a reward offered, but I'm a working musician, and don't have much....I'll be glad to negotiate repair work in exchange plus cash.

Mesa Boogie Mark II-B serial #7797

My car stolen last Wed. (11/7/07) from my carport in Santa Monica Ca and had
my Mesa Boogie Mark-II-B in the trunk.
It has the creme colored finish with a straw rattan grill cloth.
On the bottom rear panel my name is stenciled in big 1&1/2 inch lettering in
black assuming it's hasn't been painted over or removed somehow.
The same stenciling appears in white on the black amp cover on top which
might not be with it at this point? Serial # is 7797. If any one out there
happens to come across it please get in touch with me and we can take it
from there regarding compensation. All info will be kept confidential.

Thanks, Leon Rubenhold
