GREEN BAY, Wisconsin – A Wisconsin man got the surprise of a lifetime when he ordered a guitar online.

Gary Arndt wanted a Gibson B-25-12 guitar just like the one he had in the Navy 45 years ago. He sold that one and regretted it ever since.

Arndt never expected what he found on his new guitar -- his initials and his military ID etched on the inside.

“I'll never sell it again,” Arndt said. “I'll pass it down to one of my sons.”

Gibson only made 100 models of the guitar that Arndt now owns -- again.
