    Trusting nearly a quarter million dollars of gear to a $10 Master lock in a storage locker you aren't near doesn't make a lot of sense. Was the gear insured? Is there list of serial numbers? Is it climate controlled? Incredibly lucky he got it back. Trust no one.

    MUST SEE VIDEO Watch this interview with the owner of the guitars Robby Z a real pro musician. It was done before the police found most of his guitars,

    His collection of custom color Fender offsets is/was mind boggling. Hope he gets them back.
