    Damn, that’s a major drag. And why I won’t let mine out of my sight…

    Seems this one had a unique paint job, so you would hope it would be hard to sell, but the thieves probably don’t know what they have.

    Just occurred to me that these things are probably easier to secure than most guitars as you could pass a lock through the body to lock to something solid.
