1989 Richard Brune Stolen in Seattle

Post by oski79 » Sun Jun 10, 2018 4:54 pm

Seattle guitarist Naeim Rahmani had his Brune stolen from his home a few days ago, along with his Visenut case. Naeim is a fantastic guitarist, and a student of Rene Izquierdo. The guitar is a Fleta model #468, as noted on the label. Keep on the lookout, just in case you see it for sale somewhere. Shoot me a PM if so. It appears the thief knew what he was doing, as two instruments of lesser value were left behind.

I saw Naeim's photo on FB and his plight, so it's getting wide coverage. Hope he gets it back. Ian O'Sullivan had his Paul Sheridan stolen from his home on Oahu a couple weeks back. There was a big buzz created on FB and, a week later, he got it back! So it's possible.

May the thief be stricken dead by lightning. That’s all I have to say. The thief is lucky he didn’t break into my house and steal one. My wife would have taken care of him, that’s for sure.

Unbelievable! Any SOB that steals a guitar deserves to be prosecuted?

Thats kinda scary because it implies the possibility that there was an "inside job" aspect to this theft. Not that its been proven but still you can't help but think about it.

If the thief targeted that specific guitar, i doubt it will show up again. Should be covered under house insurance but hard to replace your favorite guitar

This raises a serious dilemma: Can we reveal the type of guitars we have (for those with higher end models) in an overt fashion? It's scary when one sits down to think about it.

I had someone tell me how many years ago one of his friends was playing a gig in Los Angeles with a high end guitar (70's Strat). After the show, he was approached by a beautiful woman and they went to spend the night together - he left his guitar unattended apparently (idiot!!!). Well, in the morning, girl was gone - and yes, so was his guitar! The person that told me this said that his friend knew right away that they (he was sure there was more than one person involved) were after the guitar, as his wallet and everything else he had with him was completely untouched.

I hope Naeim Rahmani gets reunited with his Brune real soon.
