In case anyone hasn't already heard, Jack Casady's heavily Alembic-modded "Yggdrasil" Guild Starfire II bass, stolen from him in 1969, was returned to him last year, refinished and part of a custom carved control plate missing, but still: after having been MIA for 47 years!

And here's the full story of just how the bass found its way home. (Note you must use the "next page" button at the bottom to see each sequential page). <br /> <br /> Would that all lost and stolen instruments could be returned to their rightful owners.
