I have posted about my Stolen A. Lawrence Smart F5 Mandolin (#124) at Mandolincafe.com, Craigslist, Philzone and elsewhere just to make as many people aware of it as possible.
Here's my recent Philzone Post:

Long Story Short: On September 18th I Played a gig in Plymouth CA (1 hour East of Sacramento, CA).
30 mins after playing I was at the Cosumnes River Bridge over the River on Hiway 49 at the Amador / Eldorado County Line.
While swimming my car was broken into and this instrument was Stolen.
It's got a brown Varnish Finish, pearl Scroll headstock inlay, pearl nut, white Ivoroid bindings, Allen chrome tailipiece, custom ebony finger rest, internally mounted McIntyre Feather plumbed to the end pin jack, Tone Gard, Red Snark Tuner (and other stuff in the case storage space) all in a White, Hardshell Calton Case with plenty of stickers including a Stealy, and several Hinano Beer Stickers.
I will pay $500 for accurate information leading to the recovery of this mandolin (presuming it comes back to me in sound condition).
ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!
