AC/DC guitar stolen in dirty deed from B.C. restaurant: RCMP

WHITE ROCK, B.C. - 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.
