General Kyd Stradivarius
This cello, currently owned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and played by Robert deMaine, was previously played by Peter Stumpf, and was stolen from Stumpf's porch in 2004. The General Kyd was later recovered after narrowly escaping being turned into a fancy CD rack. The "General Kyd" underwent 18 months of restoration by Rafael Carrabba Violins in Seattle and was returned in fine condition to the Los Angeles Philharmonic in March 2016.
