Thank you to anyone and everyone who will share this. I know that alot of the smaller stuff (guitar pedals, microphones, etc) will be a long shot, but someone may try to sell them all as a group. Who knows. Hopefully something comes up somewhere.

Thank you to everyone who shared it the first time. I really appreciate it. I would ask if you could please share it again with the updated information. There’s no telling where my guitars/gear could show up.
And thank you for all of your kind words of encouragement and all the outpouring of love and support. You all have been nothing short of amazing. Thank you all so much.
