A one of a kind guitar is back in the hands of its owner after a disappearance act.
 
Fort Saskatchewan musician Harold Reichstein, reported the guitar missing after performing a show at the Polo's Social Lounge in Sherwood Park on December 13.
 
"It was a busy night for me there and I got a little side tracked, but I had to work a night shift and I was in a hurry to get out of there and by the time I got home, this guitar wasn't with us," said Reichstein.
 
He filed a police report and his wife along with guitar maker, Mark Kost started a social media campaign looking for the guitar.
 
The Winsten and Fidel Cigar Box guitar is irreplaceable because of how it is made.
 
"This one is the only one of it's kind because this cigar box (from out of country), he's never got again, so every guitar has it's own unique feature," explained Reichstein.

He prefers this guitar because of its sound and it pairs well with the classic rock and blues he performs.

The guitar was returned to Reinstein on Thursday (January 4) by the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP, who had the guitar show up at the detachment.
 
"Thanks to media and social media and everything else, it found it's way back to me. I don't know the story, it's pristine, I said I didn't want to ask any questions, I just wanted it back, so I'm happy," he said.
