While it isn't uncommon for touring musicians to get robbed on the roadDIANA frontwoman Carmen Elle is looking to find a one-of-a-kind guitar and various effects pedals stolen from her vehicle in Toronto.

In a Facebook post made Sunday (July 15), Elle revealed the instrument in question to be a custom-built axe made for her by her father, luthier Joseph Yanuziello.

Elle included additional photos of the missing instrument, adding that the guitar's case features her father's last name stitched into the fabric.

Specifics of the stolen pedalboard were noted by local music journalist (and Exclaim! contributor) Michael Rancic. Elle's missing rig includes a Strymon blueSky reverb, an MXR boost/line driver, BOSS Chorus and tuner pedals, an Electro-Harmonix Memory Man, and a Fulltone OCD drive pedal.

The aforementioned pedals were attached to a Pedaltrain Jr. pedal board, along with a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 power supply.

Elle is offering a reward for the return of her gear with "no questions asked."
