I hate to break the bliss, but this is a stolen bass. Its rightful owner is Pete Sears
. This bass was apparently stolen from Jefferson Starship at the riot in Germany. Is is awesome that the bass survived, it is awesome that it has surfaced.
It would be really awesome if the bass was returned to its rightful owner, who I am sure was heartbroken upon its loss,
and would be enormously thankful for its return.Pete Sears
, if you do not know it already, is an awesome musician and a really nice guy. He is playing with MoonAlice these days, and can be reached thru the MoonAlice website contact information.
Here is a pic of Pete
with the bass a long long time ago(picture is on the Lieber Guitars website):
And here is a pic of Pete
playing with MoonAlice in Burlington Vermont 10/23/2012:
This bass should be returned to its rightful owner.
