But on the day of the performance, Dylan’s prized guitar has gone missing!
     Could someone from a rival band have taken it in hopes of gaining an advantage? Or could the culprit be someone closer to home? It’s up to Frank and Joe to investigate this rocking mystery—or else Crush might be crushed in the competition!
