    Opinions seem to be very divided on who should get 9-2227 "stripe" So i thought i'd start this poll to see what you fellow forum members think....

    So what do you think should (not what you think will) happen to the burst? should Gary get to keep it or should it be returned to Ronnie??

    Heck no Gary shouldn't keep it. At what point did the guitar become un-stolen?

    Until I see some proof that it's the same guitar, I vote for Gary. The only pic I've seen of Ronnie playing the stolen guitar is too pixilated to say for sure it's the same guitar. And I still want to know why Ronnie waited until 2009 to take action...when it's been established that he has thought 'Stripe' is the guitar stolen from him since (at least) 2002.

    +1 for Gary Moore. Ronnie Montrose as known that G M may have had the stolen burst for over ten years. So you have to ask your self, why as it took so long to bring any action against Moore.
    The only conclusion I can come up with. He as realised the value of the guitar and his looking for a pay day. IMO.

    How does that change the fact that it is stolen? That does not justify keeping stolen goods.

    Ronnie Montrose. He's a way better player too, hands down.

    What does that have to do with anything. :shock: :hmm:

    I say Moore. Montrose has lived without it for 10 years already, he'll survive.

    It's almost been 40 years since Montrose had the guitar.... i'm surprised he can even remember it, he only had it for less than a year.

    Montrose, assuming he can prove it was his and he filed a police report at the time.

    just stirring the pot... I really haven't listened to either that much. Ronnie does kick some ass on some of the youtube videos I've seen... maybe I'll check out moore tonight.

    but it IS RONNIE'S GUITAR:thumb:

    It's Montrose's guitar.

    It's a ripped off guitar in Moore's hands.

    Why is everyone so quick to say "he waited 10 years". So there's been no contact between the two yet?

    It's Montrose's guitar. He never sold it.

    Gary Moore. He bought it unknowingly and it's been many years. It doesn't make it "un-stolen" but has it been proven beyond a doubt that it was actually stolen and that it is indeed the same guitar? All kinds of funny drunken deals were made back then. I'd venture to say that a lot of stars have "reasigned" instruments.

    Maybe we should give the western United States back to the Mexicans, or better yet, the whole country back to the Native American Indians.

    It's in Gary's possesion, maybe he should sell it to Montrose for what he paid for it. That would be fair.
