Texas rocker Ally Mcerlaine is appealing for the return of his favourite guitar.

The musician was given the iconic Gibson Es-335 when he joined the Scottish band in 1988 and it featured on the cover of their single I Don't Want A Lover a year later (89).

However, the precious instrument went missing during a charity concert in London in 2012 and MCErlaine is desperate to get it back.

He tells Scotland's Daily Record newspaper, "I didn't worry immediately as I was hoping that it would turn up... after all this time it still hasn't surfaced... I am hoping that someone will recognise it from pictures and return it to me."
