Likely sold to a pawn shop for meth money. As long as he has the serial numbers, they'll show-up in a search. The bitch is, you have to pay the pawn shop what they paid for the guitars to get them back. That's what happened to me anyway.
Terrible. I think the band Drivin and Cryin who someone mentioned here last week had a whole equipment trailer boosted from their hotel parking lot a few years back. What can you say? The Stones had all their guitars stolen from Nel Cote after recording Exile on Main Street.
Around 1980 someone broke into my house and stole a Twin, two Rhodes cabs, a Gibson Grabber bass, two stereo receivers and a bag of pennies. Sitting in the middle of it all on the couch was my LP deluxe which I still have. Criminals--as a group--ain't the sharpest knives in the drawer.
