Animals As Leaders gear stolen

From the AAL FB:

"Hey guys.
We've got some pretty terrible news to report. Upon returning home to our house in LA we discovered that we'd been robbed while were out on tour. The thieves were able to get away with Javier's Chevy Blazer and all of the equipment we didn't have on tour with us. 10 guitars in total. This includes many of our one of a kind custom instruments (Stranberg,Rick Toone ) as well as amplifiers, PA equipment and personal items.
This is beyond devastating. We know so many of you have been beyond supportive with Javier's legal troubles. We may need more of your help now to potentially find some of these one of a kind instruments that may pop up on Ebay, Craigslist, pawn shops, used music stores etc.
We're adding an album containing photos and detailed descriptions of the stolen gear to our profile. Please take a look and keep your eyes open for anything that looks close to this stuff. I truly think that with your help we have an exponentially better chance of tracking some of this down.

Thanks,
Tosin, Javier"

I feel awful reading this. No honest musician deserves to have their gear stolen, especially when we're talking about one-of-a-kind instruments. Not to mention that the fuckers got his truck, too.

They had all that equipment in a house without an alarm system?

I hate to be negative about something like this, but is it just me or does shit like this seem to happen all the time?

I think it's a bit of a rite of passage for a band to lose some shit at some stage. That said though, ten custom guitars and a load of other equipment is a nasty haul to lose, no matter who you are.

Unfortunately it does. This is the worst case that I've heard of personally. Really sucks for them and hopefully they can get at least some of it back.

Yeah, it happens pretty often. For example, Mike Mushok's (Staind guitarist) one-of-a-kind PRS 7 string got stolen recently. Thankfully, though, the dumbass thief tried selling it to Guitar Center and got caught. Hopefully these dipshits aren't so witty, either.
