(Classic Rock) Armored Saint bassist Joey Vera has been reunited with a bass guitar that was stolen from him 18 months ago. The white ESP V4 bass was stolen in February of last year, along with a 1979 Gibson Les Paul guitar. And after months of trying to track it down, Vera resigned himself to the likelihood that he'd never see it again.

But earlier this month a fan got in touch to say he'd seen what looked like the bass for sale on eBay. Vera says: "We filed police reports, searched local pawn shops, Craigslist, eBay etc for several months. But soon after we had to come to grips that these two guitars were gone forever.

"Then on October 4 of this year, just before I left for Japan to play a gig with Armored Saint, I got a message from a fan, William Wells, saying that he was about to bid on a bass he found on eBay.

"He really liked the bass and was about to bid when his memory recalled a similar bass in a post that I has posted back in February of 2015. After looking up that old post, he realised that it might be the same bass. He sent me the message along with the eBay posting ID, and sure enough after taking a close look at it, it knew it was my bass." Read more here.
