    I posted this a while ago, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to post it again. A guitar was stolen from me in January 2007 when I lived in San Diego, California. It was someone posing as a PRS artist representative. He was going to get me a PRS HB at a discounted rate. He also did some setups, work, repairs, PUP swaps to dozens of my other guitars as well, so I thought he was a reputable guy.

    I gave him $2500 for a HB that was supposedly being custom made for me. Right before the custom HB was to be finished, I gave him my 2005 PRS HB1 to do a setup. That was the last I saw the guitar. I even contacted Paul Reed Smith and Winn Krozack at PRS Guitars to get some more information on this guy and was informed that he has never had any affiliation with the PRS Guitar Company.

    Police reports have been filed and I even won a small claims case in San Diego. A judgement against the guilty party was granted in my favor, but that is all it is, "a judgement" with no guarantee of getting the guitar or my money back.

    There have been a few questions why I waited so long to post this thread----I have kind of come to terms that I may never see the $$$ again but if there is a guy out there that has the guitar, I would be willing to buy it back. It was my first PRS that was like that and I wrote/recorded some songs on it that mean a lot to me and it represent a certain time in my life that was very important to me (i.e. the loss of a family member) etc and I would like to have the guitar back

    Anyways, I know it is a long shot trying to find it but it is a:

    2005 PRS Hollowbody 1 with piezo, Non 10-top with birds, OHSC, case candy in Grey-Black.
    Serial number 5 94657.

    If anyone comes across it or has any information, please contact me.

    Sorry to hear about that, man. Beautiful instrument. Unfortunately, there are some people out there who just don't play by the rules. Best of luck.

    Saw a guitar just like this Saturday night while watching a band from Arkansas. Doubt it's the one, but just saying. The band was called The Odds, from Fayetteville, Arkansas.

    No need for a bump since it's a sticky, but thought I would check to see if there is any new updates on this Sevenstringer? I've been watching Nashville area craigslists, and haven't seen anything yet. Still hope it works out for ya.
