Kyle's 1972 Fender Jazz Bass, the one he's had for over a decade, was stolen. His 1966 Fender Duo Sonic was taken. My custom made Jazzmaster, the one I slowly put together over the course of months, was stolen. The jerks also took Kyle's Epiphone Sheraton, brand new Macbook Pro, and wallet, as well as my Danelectro Bass VI and a set of keys (I then had to spend an extra couple hundred dollars re-keying my home and car). Our friend, Dave, had a Peavy guitar at my house that Kyle and I were working on and that was stolen too. All together, we lost about $7500 worth of stuff — that's a conservative estimate. And the insurance company didn't give us any money.You can support Huang and Gutierrez by donating to that Rocket Hub campaign or you can donate in a much more fun way by going to Club Congress on Friday, Jan. 16. There's a $5 suggested donation and the show starts at 9 p.m. It's a 21 and over event.
