    What's really bad is when you're missing a guitar but you dont know which one :)

    I could probably lose a black NC, and not realize unless I did an overall count. Until I finish all the planned mods, I'd have zero chance of knowing which one. LOL.

    I was missing a PRS for about six months before I realised it was missing(!) - It was only when my bandmate brought it back from their house where we'd last rehearsed that I remembered that I'd not seen it for a while.
    I now try to keep a list of places and people I've taken or lent guitars, effects and amps to...

    I have never had a guitar disappear. However, one day I found an empty case in the stable. It was good timing as it saved me buying a case for my Player Series Lead III.

    @Eddie if it is your Skittlescaster that is missing, it is NOT in my stable. ;)

    Didnt you trade it?? You traded a modded NC recently for something didnt you? Or was it 2? for an amp??

    I had a family member do similar to me. The difference being, I never lent her any they just started coming up missing. And that's how we found out she had an addiction to crack- cocaine. It's been a decade or so but I still don't trust her to this day

    You must have some HUGE cats,

    I did have one that liked to run down my fretting arm, back down the fretboard, over to my strumming hand, around the back of my neck, to do it over again. I really, really miss that cat.

    No, no. That was an unmodded NC.

    I simply have no clue where it went. I'm certain it'll turn up some place. Always does. I just can't remember where I put it. I wanna swap out the neck H-Rails to a GM Stakbucker. :)

    you know you need ginkoba when..............ive had at least 120 guitars at one time or another,i can safely say ive never "misplaced" one EVER.
    I THINK YOU ARE SHITTING US EDDIE.

    my friend did once say to me,im going out for a pack of smokes and ill be right back.
    he showed up at my new house 7 years later like he just left and said "still got my kramer"
    it was an aerostar(pile) so i traded it after not seeing him for 5 years.i still felt bad,just not bad enough
    to give him one of my other guitars,lol.

    On the flip side, I just found a Snark tuner that I didn't even know I had. :)

    I also picked up two packs of tooth picks on Saturday.

    I have no idea where they are right now. :(

    Try moving...you won't be able to find anything for weeks or months or even years. My parents have moved numerous times in my lifetime, more times since I left home as the numerus times before. They are still finding things packed in Mayflower or Allied boxes which would place them being packed in circa, 1960-1962.

    Made many military moves, and lost a Squier HSS Standard about 10 years ago in one of them.
