The Northern California Bluegrass Society is sponsoring a National Stolen & Missing Instrument directory. It allows for instant listing of a stolen instrument and is expected to be a useful resource for pickers, retailers, and law enforcement agencies alike. There is no charge for the service which functions like a bulletin board or online forum. The directory can be displayed as a threaded list, or in a bulletin board style format, and you can search the many entries from any page.
Many of our readers may find the site useful, though it employs annoying pop up windows and banner ads with audio that some users may find disconcerting.
