    Guitar Vista in New Mexico had someone steal four or five guitars about 4 or 5 weeks ago. Someone smashed his windows, ran in, took whatever was closest and ran out. I think they got a few Santa Cruz guitars and a few Eastman guitars. No cases, so that might be the tell tale sign when they are sold. The same for the ones stolen at McCabes.
    Sorry, I am no longer suffering fools

    Of all the things to steal, mandolins don't strike me as a quick or safe sale. But then, when do junkies ever think?

    They sell real quick for $50 each. They are sold to fences and the stuff gets resold out of state.

    Sorry to hear they were stolen.

    Just learned that one of these mandolins has surfaced and been identified. Posting this is a good excuse to remind folks of these. Never know when or where one will turn up.

    I think I remember seeing this original post but with the serial numbers not in a web readable format, the image itself doesn't achieve much, so adding below so Google will pick them up and be truly searchable. That way a buyer could have a clear shot at finding out they were stolen if they were unaware of where they were lifted. May be available in a readable format elsewhere, don't know, but won't hurt to have them here as well. Over the years we've seen a pretty amazing number of instruments located and identified from forum posts.

    All stolen without their cases from McCabe's in Los Angeles.
