    One off Bolin RECOVERED!!!



    one of a kind, 1989 Heritage STAT DLX. Carved flame maple top in Antique Cherry Burst finish. Black Kahler Spyder tremolo. Seymour Duncan JB humbucker in bridge position wound by Maricela Juarez marked "JBJ" on the underside. 2 Seymour Duncan "classic stacks" in the middle and neck positions. Trapezoid inlays on the neck instead of the standard production dots. Binding on the neck instead of the standard unbound neck. No tummy cut on the back of the guitar (unlike the standard production). Serial number is: F18602 also stamped "made in Kalamazoo MI, USA" Last seen in black rectangular Heritage guitars case.

    What a bummer! It always feels so terrible when your prized tools are stolen. I've had it happen several times including years ago a Dumble amp, so I feel your pain. If there is any good side to it, you can right it off your taxes. And if like in my case when a tool is somewhat rare as is in your case as well. There is a very good chance of recovery, especially with the internet now.

    Best of Luck!

    That amp is a one-off, it should not be easy to sell without identifying it.

    I'm starting to think we need some sort of Musician's Mafia to recover the gear in these stolen threads.

    Your good wishes and some good hearts and good work over at the LP forum brought back my Bolin. I'm so relieved and happy!
