True... GM is basically stuck with that guitar until this is resolved. He can't sell it to anyone and nobody in their right mind would buy it with the prospect that it could get taken away from them as stolen property. Not worth a nickel.

Unless he sells it to some private collector and it goes underground... I can't see that happening anyway out of the three burst Gary has owned this is the one he kept... there's a reason for it.

I read somewhere else "that if a buyer buys something in good faith, and can prove it, such as producing a receipt from a legitimate business, they can not be held liable. That doesn't mean the aggrieved party can't try to recover, but the burden is on them." Maybe thats why GM hasn't responded to Montrose.

There is also the statue of limitations which has been mentioned many times before... and like Rhubard red said where is all the evidence that this guitar was owned by montrose (i'm not saying it wasn't but i haven't seen much in way of proof.)

All i'm saying is the law can be interpreted in different ways to fit both arguments. And this poll show's how people can see both side's of the coin...

I find it quite funny with people stating how if you side with Gary Moore then the only reason is only because your a fan of his....:hmm:

It's hot! Perhaps he tried but no one wanted to touch it. Of course it might really be his favorite.

No one has to show any proof to us. Just bring it too court. One has to assume there is proof or they wouldn't go to court. Is there enough to prove it to a judge? It remains to be seen.

And most of us here are offering up opinions with no knowledge of law or the actual evidence. Just speculation. If we knew what evidence was there and knew the applicable law we all might have different opinions from what we have now.

People are biased. They may not mean to be that way but we all are. If this poll had asked the question: "If a guitar player had a burst stolen many years ago and later located it and could prove it, should the guitar be returned?" I think the results would be different. It would have eliminated any fan preferences. An interesting thread anyway.

The way the votes are going, if anyone from MLP wants to borrow my weed-whacker they're going to have to fill out an application.

Yeah, buddy. "In God we trust - all others pay cash."
I always thought this forum was a place where you could trust people and deal honestly with others like me. Not so sure about that now! There are the few who have a reputation for pulling the wool over someone's eyes, but we know who they are. But the fact that the score is 58 for GM and 57 for RM says something.

Yeah... but not everyone knows who they are and you can't warn anybody no matter how truthful. The thread will get quickly deleted. Lame.

So how friggin' long do we have to wait for the court settle this?

...oh, there's appeals, too.

Shoot, they'll both be using walkers by the time this is resolved.

very true, and if another thread was started next to that one with the question: " If after owning a burst for 20 years which you bought from a reputable dealer in good faith, someone come along and says that it's their guitar which was stolen 30 years ago, would you return it?? I think the results would be the opposite.
