Iron Maiden have appealed for the return of a guitar belonging to the band after it was stolen at a concert in Greece.

Via their website, the band have offered a reward of an IRON MAIDEN tour jacket and a personal hand written letter for anyone who finds the guitar, reports Festivalwise.

The instrument in question belongs to guitarist Adrian Smith and is a white signature model made by Jackson guitars.

"It will be extremely hard to get rid of as it's the only one in the world," the band said.

It is thought that the instrument was taken during the band's performance in Athens on Saturday night.

They are not the only band to be hit by thieves recently, as a van full of equipment belonging to Iggy Pop AND The Stooges was stolen from outside their hotel following a performance at a festival in Montreal
