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.
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 email@example.com. 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.
