A Ceriatone OTS amp was stolen in Brisbane, Australia and I am posting here, perhaps someone can help.

The amp was delivered last month, but to a wrong address (owner moved house). The house was supposed to be with several rented rooms. To cut it short, it was taken.

An ebay posting surfaced, and I strongly believe it was the exact amp:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Ceriatone-Overtone-Special-Tube-Amplifier-/260852675527?pt=AU_Amplifiers&hash=item3cbc07f3c7%3E#ht_5107wt_1137

Investigation has been started both by the courier and the local Brisbane police on the issue.

If someone in the area of Brisbane, Australia are willing to help, please contact me. I am offering a reward for safe return (to the owner) of the amp.

The reward is as follows:

1) Beat up the guy who took it to a pulp, and safe recovery and delivery  of amp = USD 400

2) Safe recovery of amp = USD 375
    (hey, beating up trash dont bring much money. But if it's your thing, do it!)

Thank you, much appreciated!!

Thanks!

This guy knows nothing about amps.....put the fear of God into him.
Post on his E-Bay add. Tell him you believe that this may be your amp, that it was stolen about one month ago. Tell him there is a serial number inside the chassis, and there are serial numbers on the transformers and potentiometers. Tell him you would like him to pull the chassis....take pictures.....and you will then be able to verify, with Ceriatone, when the amp was made, and who it was made for......Say that this is a fail safe method to determine ownership.....he will not be able to sleep at night.....
Then we can all help you beat this guy with a baseball bat (or Cricket bat). Hope this goes well for you.....sorry we are so far away.....
Good Luck

Looks like it "ended" and all the offers he was given he declined.

Nik, did the Brisbane authorities get to the bottom of it?

Dear all

Thanks much for the replies, sorry havent been here for a bit.

The issue is being resolved.

Hard to tell the full story without embarrassing some parties, so suffice to say it's working out fine, for this.

The amp is being shipped to the owner, and we'll see once he receives it,  if it's fine.

Thanks so much for the replies, guys!! Smiley

Thanks!
