    Default Stolen instruments

    My Blackbird guitar and ukulele were stolen from the Nugget Reno ukulele festival. Also taken was my Mark Neal banjo uke. I know there is no hope of recovery. Needless to say this is my last Reno festival at this hotel.

    Sorry to hear. Do you have photos? Make a police report? Perhaps they will surface at local pawn shops. Or check on Craigslist Reno periodically.

    Home owner's insurance may help...check with your agent.
    Playing ukulele since January 2016.

    Have you participated in the thread, "How the Ukulele Found You?" If not, please consider adding your story--they are just fun to read.

    That...Just...Sucks! So sorry to hear that. Likely drug-related, as much theft is.

    Choirguy has a point. Check with your insurance agent.

    Post photos if you have them. Put up the photos on all the Uke FB pages, wherever. Perhaps somebody will see them.
    Dang. That's just horrible.

    Sorry this happened.

    Do you have the serial numbers?

    I found these two photos of the stolen banjolele on Mark Neal's website, http://www.mlnealbanjos.com/. The banjolele has a "distinctive hummingbird inlay."

    Pardon a newbie for poking her nose in, but please don't give up hope. I'm so sorry this happened and I'm sure just thinking about it spikes your blood pressure, but remaining vigilant (i.e. checking the local craigslist, sending notices to pawn shops, setting alerts on ebay) might bring your instruments back to you.

    My fingers are crossed that you have a positive resolution.

    Where did this happen? I have been to the Reno Uke Fest numerous times in the past. A group of us also stay at the Nugget several times during the year. I will definitely be more cautious there. Sorry you lost your instruments.
