Stolen out of a vehicle early morning October 22, 2012, in Hyde Park, Austin, a 1950s double bass made by Hofner Altiers for Lewis and Sons. Bass has well-worn Eurosonic strings, almost green. Very definable scrapes, which can be provided upon request. Tobacco stain on inside of headstock. Three stickers on inside of bass, one for Hofner under right-side f-hole, one for Lewis & Sons with serial number, and one for Gold's Violin Shop, with inventory number. Bass did not have end-pin
when stolen. Adjustable bridge, solid back piece, two-piece solid front, wood shoulder guards. Bag with bass is a ProTec 7/8 bass bag, canvas, with two French bows (student model with serial # carved into the bow by the frog, salt and pepper hair, and another bow worth about $1,000, stallion hair bleached white) in a removable bow bag with velcro
closures. Also in bag could be a DigiTech chromatic pedal tuner, a handheld chromatic tuner and various classical music. Stolen along with bass was a 2000 watt bass head with the Sunn logo painted on the top. No
rack mount brackets on it, and has the -15db push button completely removed. Also one of the speaker jacks on the rear of the head has no locking o ring to keep it in place. Other than the Fender name the serial number sticker, the Sunn name is on the front, back, top and bottom of this head. Also stolen was a B100 bass amplifier by Ampeg, the
old model, handle is coming apart on the top, rust on the volume plate,
and no Ampeg name on the front. This one has a metallic gray felt speaker cover and charcoal blue/gray covering the body. Charcoal blue/gray vinyl covering the body, holes for castors on the bottom, obviously home-made. Call James Sproat at 512-422-0354 with any information. Also call the Austin Police Department at 512-974-5000 and reference case #125-047258.
