Randy Bachman to be reunited with long-lost guitar on Canada Day in Tokyo

The orange 1957 Gretsch guitar that was taken from former Guess Who singer and guitarist Randy Bachman more than four decades ago will be returned to the musician at a ceremony at the Embassy of Canada to Japan in Tokyo on Canada Day. According to June 8 story published on CTV News Vancouver Island, the guitar was stolen in Toronto and wound up in Tokyo, where it was bought by a Japanese musician named Takeshi, who wasn’t aware of the instrument’s back story. Bachman will play on Canada Day for a select audience at the embassy and be reunited with the guitar on stage.
