The guy I bought it from, Joe, is totally stand-up. He called me and is totally cooperative. He also has documentation on where he bought it from, and where that person bought it from.
Formula73 is working on getting the documentation that we (Joe and I) are asking for before giving the guitar back.
Sorry, but I don't think its unreasonable to ask for police documentation rather than someone's word on the internet when talking about handing over something of this kind of value and taking a huge $$$ loss.

I don't think you're being unreasonable at all, man. I'm just happy you're both being good guys. It would be a whole lot easier if I still lived down in San Diego, though!!!
Glad and sad to have noticed this.

TC, if it means anything, I belive this will put you in the highest regard with many here and on the other spot where this has been discussed. I have been trying to think of a way to show my appreciation to you for being a righteous guy.
I've known F73 since 2005 and I have read you on here for a long time too TC. Both of you are good folks. Big thumbs up all around. Ever in town TC drinks and dinner on me.

Basically it is a thread from January 2005 about the guitars being hiested and the multiple times it was bumped over the years. Brandon has been out here for Dean Open House events and we have discussed his Super Human Chrome/Gold Hardware corrosive abilities. When I saw the bridge/tailpiece/ and pickups my "Batsenses" tingled. My heart sank a lil when you posted the matching number from F73's Dean thread and then it soared for a moment knowing the coolness B would enjoy.
Sorry if it seems I'm on this but I am just amazed when a circle happens like this.
Life IS Good! You will be rewarded I'm sure of it. Found an old post from you how you have wanted one of these for a while. You will get one.
Here's praise for #1 who was #2 for a day, and now #1 again.......

That V RAWKS!!!!
2K is the upper price range on a Vector though. They can be had for around 1.5K too and even lower. I have seen them sit too for being so pricey.
I bet you get this back in spades one way or another.
That V is fantastic. I don't think I've seen a cooler look on a 67 style, ever. What pups are in it? Here's the only pic I have of the Hamer from way back in the day. Little ol' me, about 10 years and 60 lbs ago, rockin up on the flight deck of the John C. Stennis.
Even though this sucks for just about everybody but me, you know this will all come back to you, in one way or another, right? At the very least, I've got some pickups with your name on them, and hell, I DO have a MIJ Bacchus in the same 58 style that's pretty hard to come by. I picked it up in Japan on a port call, I believe, the deployment after the Hamer was stolen. Let me get back to port and I'll give you a call and we can talk about it.
