A Frankenstrat personally played and donated by Eddie Van Halen was been stolen from San Antonio's Hard Rock early Friday morning.

According to KENS5, Hard Rock employees noticed the iconic guitar was missing just before 1am. Police discovered a side door to the restaurant was open, but it was unclear whether the perpetrator is an employee or a customer.

MySA reports that the Frankenstrat is valued at $100,000.
