You're wise beyond your years. lol And good info. thanks.Type up a list with the model names, measurements and other relevant info, and approximate values of everything you have. Plop that and short instructions (maybe something like 'Hey idiot! Don't sell these to a pawn shop!') in the In Case of Death archive.
Fortunately I'm young enough that I probably only have to worry about getting hit by buses and things, but my relatives always ask me to help handle this stuff on account of my skills with computers and record-keeping.
If you're worried that publishing the value of your stuff where your spouse can see it may actually cause your death, there are ways to password protect files and even entire folders. You can then put the location and password in your will and/or goodbye letter.
Having such a list in multiple locations (or the cloud), along with some raw photos of all your gear, is good for insurance as well. The raw photo bit is important: .JPG, .PNG, and other common file formats can be easily edited and as such are not acceptable in court as evidence, while raw files like .TIFF, .CR2, .NEF, and the like are. I only know of one instance of an insurance company challenging someone in my family, but the company got a a lot more cooperative after being answered with several GB of raw photos showing them holding the stuff as proof of ownership.
If you can't dazzle them with brilliance...then baffle 'em with bullsh*t.
Dude, Support this Forum.
::self-censored::Bwaaaaa Haaaaaa Haaaaaa.......actually I'm laughing with fear in my heart because I know what my wife is capable of. I've been hiding saxes around here for all the years I've been playing and she has no idea how much they and all my raftload of mouthpieces are worth. Maybe I should write a TV script using that idea and pitch it to CSI: New York, Major Crimes or Law & Order: SVU if a man killed by his spouse for saxophone GAS could be considered a Special Victim.
BTW, is it considered cheating if you love your Martin Comm III more than you love your wife? Would that be grounds for divorce?
