A £100 reward has been offered for information leading to the recovery of a guitar stolen from a teenage musician.
The guitar, a black Epiphone EJ200, was reported stolen from a locked storeroom at Hinchingbrooke School, Huntingdon, on Monday.
It belongs to Ben Goold, guitarist with the band Bad Remidi, which won a singer-songwriting award at The Stables, the Milton Keynes venue run by jazz legends John Dankworth and Cleo Laine.
Ben, 15, a Hinchingbrooke pupil who has been playing since he was 11, is also a member of the National Youth Orchestra Rock Band.
His mother, Alison, said: "The instrument has a lot of sentimental value for Ben - he considers it his lucky guitar.
"The guitar is quite rare as this particular model is not often found in black. If anyone is able to help us and this leads to the recovery of the guitar or the conviction of the thief, we will pay a reward of £100.
