"mics and cables and other unnecessary stuff"

Damn all this time.

Odd collection of stuff, who knows.   that would be pretty aggressive to list on CL if it is.  He will be lucky to get 1/2 of that

The thing that says "theft" to me:  the presence of other instruments.  Trombone?  Couple of guitars (or at least the case/bags)...  If his band broke up or something, I'd think the players would take their instruments.

He claims to have title to the trailer and receipts for the gear but that doesn't jive up with the pics.

Also, if this was stolen my bet is it wasn't recently.

Edidt PS.  Thomas posted a link to reddit where this was discussed; seems someone contacted the seller and got the story.  Makes sense. Stand down.

"unnecessary stuff"


= he doesn't know what it is, yet it "belongs" to him

Looks clearly stolen...  :-\

From what I read, police recently broke up a LARGE ring of thieves that specifically targeted musicians with trailers.

Possible case closed theory, apparently on reddit the stuff belonged to the seller's father who quit because of sickness.

Mods, feel free to move the thread to basement if necessary.

I don't know because there's this story from last week saying that a trailer full of gear was stolen.
