    GOOD NEWS.
    Almost one year later the guitar was found and send to the NYC guitar shop where it had arrived without any notice.
    Thats the same shop from where it was shipped to Europe together with other guitars and amps, everything arrived to me minus the Stromberg...What had occurred in between...nobody seems to know.
    where did the guitar was all these time remains a mystery.

    This one of those stories that never happens to you always happen to others but sometimes that's reality....
    I was absoluteley sure that the guitar was stolen and lost but look like some good soul wanted just to try it out for some time. I can't say how happy I am to have it back.Besides being a killer acoustic archtop it's not a cheap one.
    Triggs have made it just after leaving Gibson.He made some D'angelicos NY models and very few Strombergs. Right now Jim doesn't do those guitars anymore just the actual Triggs models.So this is a very rare guitar and probably a one off.

    So after long time... this baby is here in Europe with me. she is in excellent shape. No scratches-dings whatever...looks like nobody have played it.So I am super HAPPY to recover this baby.Thank you Lord!
    Turn it louder please...
