The Happy Daggers singer had his stolen Chris Shiflett signature Telecaster Deluxe replaced by the Foos guitarist himself.

A Foo Fighters fan and musician had his Chris Shiflett model guitar stolen, only for it to be replaced by the Foos man himself.

Sinclair Belle, who plays in Leeds-based band Happy Daggers, was left heartbroken when his guitar -  which happened to be modelled on the Foos axeman's favourite 1972 Telecaster Deluxe - was taken from his car.

However, according to reports, when Shiflett got wind of the story on a Foo Fighters fan page, he tracked down the musician and and vowed to send him a replacement for his stolen model.

Belle told The Sun, “I was winding down from the week when a message come through the band’s Facebook page".

“It was a message from Chris Shiflett. He said he had seen the article and to let him know if I wanted another one.”

According the frontman, the message from Shiflett read: Hey Sinclair. I read about your guitar getting stolen. Bummer! I’d be happy to send you another.”

Proof indeed that the Foos are some of the nicest guys in rock.
