That must have taken quite a while to take that lot. There must be £100k there.

Not to mention a decent sized truck! I hate thieves.

 

Just announced a break in last night locally here too, not as big a haul, 3 Les Pauls, a PRS and a Strat (along with a 150 pound 140 year old cash register!) all taken from Huber and Breese Music (celebrating their 40th anniversary in business this weekend with a 40% off sale, along with Fender chipping in 10% cash back on top of that!. Sorry to hear they got hit. They have the (or one of) the guy(s) on video, I'm betting he goes down. I hope the same for this case above!

No way! I love Huber & Breese! Terry Breese was a great guy. I visited his store in Richmond a few times and chatted with him.

I'm sorry to hear about this. Huber & Breese is a great store. One of the only good mom & pop stores left in the area.

The 335 and 339 should have a chip in them. Hopefully they can track them.

 

Really? [blink]

 

Is this an optional Item with Gibson, or is it to become a norm of production?

I read that Fender is doing an initial run of 30,000 guitars that are chipped...

I can see doing it for high end customs, and historical instruments, but it is nothing that interests me in the slightest.

 

From Snagg.com here is the article.

 

Here is a small section to give an overview.

 

"Music Trade magazine recently estimated that more than 1 million guitars, horns and violas are stolen each year in the United States, making instruments as popular to thieves as cell phones, car stereos and jewelry.

 

"We're teaming with manufacturers, dealers and law enforcement to stop the rampant theft of instruments," said Snagg President Don Baskin. "One of the advantages of the system is that the chip can't be removed without significantly damaging the instrument."

 

So far, Snagg's Internet registry lists guitars and other instruments owned by more than 300 musical luminaries, among them Creed, Peter Frampton, members of the oldies band Sha Na Na and Green Day's record producer.

 

The fledgling company's microchips have been installed by Fender in 30,000 of its guitars, and Baskin said Snagg is in negotiations with Gibson and other instrument makers."
