When a London, Ontario, band asked friends for help in recovering their stolen guitar, they had no idea a rock star would come to their rescue.

Last month, Kevin Kennedy's white, Yamaha acoustic signature Dave Navarro guitar was stolen at a London club. He and his wife — and bandmate in the folk duo The Marrieds — Jane Carmichael Kennedy, shared the frustrating news on Twitter and Facebook and offered a $1,000 reward for the instrument's safe return.

No one came forward with news of the guitar.

Last week, however, a brand-new guitar arrived in the mail — from Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro.

"Look what came in the mail today! Thank you so much @DaveNavarro and @epipohine!" the ecstatic couple wrote on Twitter, sharing a photo of themselves with a new black, Epiphone Dave Navarro "Jane" signature guitar.

The Marrieds sent Navarro a video in appreciation for the rocker's incredible act of kindness:

"We can't thank him in person so this is the closest thing," the grateful duo wrote.
