Johnny Marr to be reunited with Gibson guitar

Police are to return a Gibson guitar to Johnny Marr - ten years after it was stolen.
Great deals on musical instruments

Police have finally tracked down the man who stole a 1964 Gibsonguitar from Johnny Marr a decade ago.

The guitar was taken after the ex-Smiths star played a gig in London and he was so upset about its disappearance that he offered a reward for its return. Marr now looks set to get his wish to be reunited with the Gibson, reports the Enfield Independent.

Police discovered the guitar in a house in Enfield on January 31st 2010 and as a result, charged Stephen White with theft. He subsequently pleaded guilty in front of magistrates and is now awaiting sentencing.

The Gibsonguitar will now be returned to Marr - an outcome which has pleased local police officers. PC Christopher Swain said: "I have been delighted to think I can return this treasured item to its original owner who thought they would never see it again."

Marr is a renowned guitar collector and recently told the Mail on Sunday that his favourite instruments are a Les Paul he used when writing Meat is Murder and a Fender Jaguar which used to belong to Modest Mouse singer Isaac Brock.
