It was a theft that played out like the lyrics of the AC/DC song "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap."
Mounties in White Rock, B.C., are asking for the public's help in finding a unique guitar stolen from a display case in a local restaurant.
The guitar is a 1961 Gibson SG Les Paul re-issue in a cherry finish, signed by Angus and Malcolm Young of the band AC/DC.
Police say it appears the break-in was done specifically to obtain the piece.
The guitar is easily recognizable by a distinct cartoon picture of an Angus devil on the front.
RCMP say the instrument is of sentimental value and the owners would be pleased to have it back.
