Sunday night in Kansas City our trailer lock was clipped. A lot of our gear was stolen. Unique stuff. Vintage one of a kind instruments. If anyone sees this gear on the scene please let us know. The cops say they’ll try to pawn it. There is a chance we could get some back. Not hopeful, but here is the gear list. It sucks people are so bad off they do things like this. #FixTheSystem

  2. Fender squire bass
  3. Hofner Very Thin Standard hollow body guitar
