HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A founding member of the award-winning Hawaiian music group HAPA had one of his most prized possessions stolen from the trunk of his car Saturday night.

Barry Flanagan said he believes his guitar was taken when he was parked at 24 Hour Fitness on Kapiolani Boulevard or at the Royal Hawaiian Center.

The guitar has a very distinctive hole in the pick guard area. That hole has developed over 36 years of being played on stages around the world.  The guitar also has the name "Finn" written on the top of the neck. 

If someone tries to sell it, Flanagan said it would be very recognizable and would be better if it was just turned into police.

Flanagan is offering a reward for anyone who can help him find his guitar. HAPA is currently scheduled to play at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center on March 19.
