I have heard about this story in Bakersfield about 20 miles south of McFarland. Some of the guitars ended up sold at the Guitar center in Bakersfield. Many were sold to customers at premium prices. PRS's, Gibsons, and Heritage. They were never claimed. I'm sure that the music stores that lost thier inventory have since been reimbursed for the losses from insurance of theft.
