Please post any changes to the list as replies; they'll then be merged into this list by the Mods. Additions should include: instrument make & model, tuning, serial number, any special characteristics, when & where lost or stolen, and as much contact info for you as you feel comfortable with having posted here.

If your instrument is lost or stolen, please report it as such to your local police right away! It may not do you much good immediately, but it's a precondition for having any leverage if your instrument does reappear on the second-hand market.

Lino, you can update the post, my bali's back!! :)

It came back a few days ago to my parents house. I have to say that's a really good surprise as i didn't expect it anymore. Well, i guess my last letter with "treathening" of law pursuits had made quite a good effect :D

Before it came back, Chris was kind enough to propose me another one, what i accepted, so i will receive actually 2 balis in the next weeks...Well, if everything goes right this time :twisted:

I make my living playing the Halo and it is very important that i continue to do so, if anyone can help me acquire a Halo to replace it, at least for the time being I would be greatly appreciative. send me an e-mail or PM concerning. thanks.
