    That sucks big time. Fingers crossed that the gear is recovered, but the main thing is that the guys are okay.

    That leaves me feeling disgusted, it's true the sentimental attachment to an instrument is priceless. I hope they turn up soon

    I was once ripped off for a Gibson LP and an American strat, plus an amp - at the same time.

    Where was the stuff when it got ripped off? On a stage, in a practice area, at home, or in storage?

    Also, what city did this happen in. That could help locate the items if we knew that; put the word out, etc.

    I looks like who ever stole the stuff knew what they were after, had it planned, and pulled it off fast.

    Here's Chimaira's facebook post:

    "Greetings from Mexico. Last night in Guadalajara, the promoter's van was broken into while we were at dinner and unfortunately, a few of our instruments were stolen. It did not matter that we were in a well-lit secured parking lot, thieves got away with our stuff. The show must go on and I guess at the end of the day we can share the heartache that so many other artists have had to endure."

    Money can buy a new instrument, but not the same instrument. My number one player cannot simply be re-purchased. Hopefully the originals will be located, and/or the replacments will feel as good or better.

    Didn't Santana suffer a theft, and later return?

    I HATE thieves. I would take great pleasure in punishing these kinds of people myself. With me in charge we would only need one building for a prison.
