Keep an eye out, dude lost a lot
This that guy whose storage units in San Jose got looted?
Poor bugger, if there was ever a lesson in all your eggs in one basket this has to be it, hope he get's them back.
With all the stuff about NFTs in the media lately, I thought this thread was about the video being stolen!
I'd have presumed the storage company should cover some of the loss. Maybe not!
Yes. He probably should have choose a little more security than a circle pad lock. But that’s just my opinion.
I think they usually state not responsible for lost or stolen items. Or you can buy the insurance.
Yeah..and public storage being what it is, without insurance a better choice would have been a more professional company that specializes in valuable stuff and has climate control, etc., and offers some kind of insurance coverage for documented contents in their rates (rat trap was a major red flag that this was not a high end establishment) would have been worth the extra cost.
But we're all geniuses in hindsight.
Too bad I'm not in the Bay Area anymore. As a retired investigator this would have been the perfect project for me work on.
Not a real man of genius keeping the largest vintage guitar collection in a storage unit.
Hope he had very specific insurance related to the missing instruments. Hope the insurance co was aware of the storage locker method before it went missing or this guy will be playing air guitar.
I lack sympathy for this guy.
But, I just lack sympathy in general so there is that.
Might be time to come out of retirement! This would have been a nice change from the normal investigations I’m sure.
I think he said he stopped the insurance a few years earlier, so out of luck.
how did they steal the video?
Good.. hope they get in hand of people that can play them.
World's biggest vintage guitar collection. World's most shortsighted vintage guitar collector.
To his credit I have to wonder if the insurance company gave him grief over the details of his policy, causing him to cancel. Insurance co's seem to specialize in being weasels when it comes to actually covering the policy holder when things go south.
It has long seemed to me that there should be some National data base of guitars, could be other instruments too, where for a small sum you could register you instruments with a description, picture, serial number etc. then if it were stolen an alert could be placed, someone buying a guitar could check if it was stolen, it’s history etc. The idea being to make a stolen guitar unsellable, and give leads to help track down the thieves, etc.
Is this too idealistic? If such a thing existed, would you participate?
I think everyone should have to undergo a thorough background check and complete some comprehensive training courses before having access to a guitar.
Climate control is pretty easy to come by in storage these days for not much more than non.
Also, anyone storing that kind of loot has no excuse not to buy insurance. I have stuff worth, at most, $1500 - and that much only to me - and I have insurance on it.
Man, that's tragic. But...he made a comment that sorta raised an eyebrow....
He says, about the storage facility @5:38 "This facility was not a very good facility..."
Begs the question:
If he was aware that the place had issues, enough such that he took precautions because "...rats were coming in under the door...", why the 'f' did he have ~200 very valuable guitars in it?
Seems like he should've been listening to his 'little voice.'
Hope he gets them back. It is certainly going to slow things down for everyone else who is selling a vintage instrument.
Suckage. Total Suckage.
He seems like a nice guy, I feel for him. Sorry to hear he doesn’t have insurance. He got 17 out of 200, if he gets another 17 back he’ll probably be lucky. Now that the story is our, I assume the criminals will be more careful, possibly even parting them out.
