    Just a heads up, since this is not a very common guitar...

    My fiesta red Landau Strat was stolen from my car last night along with a bunch of Apple stuff, my IEMs, etc. It was in a MONO case. It has Raw Vintage saddles and springs, and the SSC system. I had it sanded a bit at the 12th fret marker to make them stand out better on dark stages. R73953 - if you happen across it, that would be awesome. Thanks. I'm checking craigslist, forums, ebay. Police have been notified.

    First time I've ever had this kind of thing happen on this scale.

    Note: I do have Tiles in my laptop backpack and my MONO case. If by chance that ends up helping, I'll be amazed though! Not enough saturation for them to be very helpful I'm afraid.

    Stolen in Virginia Beach, VA 4/19/15 between 7:30-8:00pm.

    Sorry to hear the bad news. Its a good reminder for me to never leave my instruments in a car.

    Updated the post. I went inside to talk to some people, was maybe 20 min, and in a fenced in area.

    It was in the back seat. Kemper and pedalboard was in the trunk. They busted out the window and grabbed my backpack out of the floorboard and the case that was laying on the seat.

    Another dickless piece of **** makes himself known (the thief, of course).

    I really hope you get your guitar back sir, I feel for you.

    Sorry to hear about this ... have you tried spreading the news on the Twitter and the Fender forum?

    If the news spreads quickly it might make it harder to sell and easier to identify if the news of the theft is searchable via Google, etc., when prospective buyers research the ML sig ...

    Good luck. Hope you get it back soon!

    Lots of musicians have spread the work via FB, so thats cool. I'm watching CL and the 'bay...but no news.

    Call eBay. I assume there is a police report. If so contact them next. So they gave it a new case. Does it come with a black case?
