Carvin LB75 lefty 5-string bass in Harlequin Prismatique finish stolen from Scott SiglerSTOLEN & MISSING:
Bass: Carvin LB75 left-handed, five-string bass
Serial number: 68706 (stamped on base of fretboard down by the body)
Finish: Crazy-mad sparkly

 

The entire reason I desire to become rich and famous is not so I can rule the world, but so that I can get my frickin' bass back. Well, okay, I want to rule the world and get my bass back.

Sometime before August of 2007, some rotten fuck stole my custom Carvin LB75 bass out of my father-in-law's house. I'm a lefty, and I play 5-string, neck-through basses, and there are very few of those in the world. Add to it that I saved for a year to buy this one, and had it painted in an obnoxious, sparkly "harlequin prismatique" finish, and you've got one rare bass. The guys at Carvin told me they made less than 10 of this same combination, and they stopped making that finish the same year -- hence, this instrument is 100 percent irreplaceable.

Carvin LB75 lefty five-string in harlequin prismatique, stolen from Scott Sigler

I played over 100 shows with it, and it was my pride and joy for the longest time. I like unique things, and this puppy was unique. Under the stage lights, it looked like molten glass.The serial number was 68706. That's stamped on the base of the fretboard, right down at the body. If anyone ever sees an instrument like this, please, email me scott@scottsigler.net. The picture at right is a close-up of an identical instrument, except that this one has black knobs while mine had silver. 

Said theives also made away with an Ibanez RG7420-BPL left handed, 7-string guitar. Ibanez only made 50 of these. Hard to find left 7-string guitars with a tremolo - I found one, and now it's gone as well. The serial number on that one is F0021555.

Scott, that really sucks.

Scott, that really sucks. I'm so sorry. I'll leave you with a quote. I had it in storage for three years, it was out for five days and some dickless piece of shit fucked with it. They should be fucking killed. No trial, no jury, straight to execution. Boy, I wish I could've caught him doing it. I'd have given anything to catch that asshole doing it. It'd been worth him doing it just so I could've caught him doing it. Perhaps it could be fodder for your next novel... Torturing a dickless piece of shit.

I set up a Google alert for LB75. I'm sure others have set up EBay alerts as well. If anyone has the balls to list it, we'll find it. Sorry to hear about that Scott, I had a strat (fortunately it was a copy) stolen at our first show EVER. It was the cheapest piece of crap ever, but it sounded great. I am still pissed about it!

Rats man, share your pain.

Rats man, share your pain. Bought a new cycle/helmet. Parked it in my single home garage. Went down to go to work the next day, Helmet was gone. Wife evidently left the door open all night. Luckily no serial killers in town that day, just some sneaky light fingered fucker. My loss is nowhere near as extreme as yours, but I still felt violated. At least you can buy helmets all day long, for 300 bucks! Clean
