Pawn Shop Guitars

I can't help but laugh at how ridiculous this case has been.

First, you have the inflated value of guitars revealed here. And, make no mistake about it--the inflated value of "vintage" guitars is a sham and a bubble that will burst and ruin a lot of people. These instruments may have been "precious" because of the sentimental value attached to them but they were not worth $100,000.

Second, you have the idiot who stole the guitars. One human being cannot walk out of a building carrying five guitar cases. Who helped him? Did he make multiple trips?

Third, you have the fact that this was done at a facility where there were no cameras, no security personnel, nothing. Was it an inside job?

It's a shame that the fellow who pawned one of the instruments got as much as $250. It would have been a better story if he had gotten just $25 for Petty's 1967 Rickenbacker 12-string. I would have laughed all day at that.

  1. Sentimental value of things is important to us regardless of the value. But for some emergency reasons we may out of budget for money we can easily turn to pawn our personal belongings.
