Randy Bachman was reunited in Tokyo 45 years ago with a guitar he had stolen from a Toronto Hotel

Randy Bachman, the Canadian rock icon, finally found his way to Tokyo on July 1. He reunited with his beloved guitar in Tokyo 45 years after it was stolen at a Toronto hotel. This was written by The Hollywood Reporter.

Bachman, 78-year-old former member of The Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive, stated that the Gretsch guitar on “American Woman” was gifted to him by a Japanese musician in 2014. He didn’t know the history and bought it in Tokyo.

According to the rock star, all guitars are unique. However, a Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins 1957 orange Gretsch 6120 Chet Atkins that he purchased as a teenager was extraordinary.

He stated that he had worked multiple jobs in order to save enough money to purchase a $400 guitar. This was his first purchase of an expensive instrument.

I cried for three whole days after the guitar was taken from a Toronto hotel in 1977. It was part me,” he stated. In an unsuccessful attempt to repair them, he ended buying 300 guitars.

Bachman has spoken frequently about the missing guitar on interviews and radio shows. He also spoke on YouTube with his son Tal, most recently.

A Canadian fan discovered the story and began an internet search to find the guitar in Tokyo. It was found in just two weeks.

Admirer William Long recognized it as a “digital footprint” due to a small stain visible in old photos. He traced the instrument back to a Tokyo vintage guitar shop.

Further research led him to a YouTube clip of Takeshi, a Japanese musician, playing the instrument in December 2019.
