U2 frontman Bono was dismayed after British Prime Minister Tony Blair refused the rocker's gift of a guitar.

Blair, who used to be in a band called UGLY RUMOURS, was offered the instrument by the Irish singer last year (03).

But the premier was forced to turn away the present because as a member of Parliament, he is only allowed to accept gifts up to GBP140 ($252) in value.
