    If anyone sees my red KxK at a pawn shop or anywhere else, I'd appreciate a heads up. I was robbed tonight, and it was among the more valuable and personally loved things stolen. Also missing are a black i7-equipped 17" Dell laptop that is broken by the right speaker and a Vetta 1 head with a pronounced scratch by the input jack, which is a little stiff. The rest is too common to bother mentioning.

    Here is a picture for those of you who don't remember or haven't seen it. As far as I know, this is the only KxK that looks like this.

    Thanks, and back to your regularly scheduled gear ogling.

    People are disgusting. I hope you get everything back man. There's no way to replace that guitar. Truly a shame.

    Wow, I'm very sorry to hear this Tom. After such a short time of owning it too :(

    Hopefully it makes it's way back to you unharmed, along with as many other items you had taken from you.

    Maybe... This might help...

    I left my guitar in a car park when loading up. Some guys doing doughnuts around it distracted me. I "felt" I'd packed away all my gear.... :(

    I visited the venue and looked around for local crackheads. I offered a reward for any info to them and also made a police report (useless imo). People at the venue knew what happened and had it waiting for me a week later.

    If it was at a venue, you may have more friends / witnesses than you first thought.

    Sorry for your loss.

    Also, if you don't know about guitars would you know a KxK was valuable? It may turn out well after all. I wish you all the luck in the world for your recovery. Check eBay and online 2nd hand... Obvious but don;t give up hope. Someone will try to sell it eventually.

    I'm sorry, man. I hope you get the SOB, and more importantly, recover your stolen property.

    The even shittier thing is that stuff is most likely across the border already. That is how they roll down there. I really hope you get the guitar back at the very least.

    That is fucking terrible. Best luck to you finding it. I advise to try pawn shops a little bit outside of south Texas, you never know how far it went

    Thanks for the help and the well wishing, guys. :wub: I was able to get the serial number for my laptop from Dell, so that has me feeling quite a bit more optimistic. I'm putting together a little pamphlet on my friend's computer with appropriate pics and serials to pass out to pawn shops around town, and then I'll be calling the PD to give them the updated pics and info (already filed a report the night it happened). Everything else is probably gone unless they take everything to the same pawn shop (including my cameras :( ), but if I can get my laptop and guitar back, I'll be happy enough. Fortunately, those seem like the most likely things to be recovered.

    I live in McAllen, which is about as far south as it gets. It's unlikely but still possible that it may make its way up as far north as San Antonio or Austin.


    Unfortunately, my stuff was taken from my home.
