Over/Under on my missing guitar?

Yesterday I had a jam at my house, some friends came, and one invited a friend, let's call him Fred. He was a dready dude, kinda hippy, decent bass player. Said he's only passing through and would be leaving town in a week or so. Later on we were hanging out on the couches and jamming on acoustic guitars, having a good time. We head back into the jam room and play a little more until Fred says he needs to head out.

So Fred says his goodbyes, tells me he had a good time and he'd like to do it again before he leaves town. He leaves and we keep jamming. Later on when we've finished jamming, I noticed he left his acoustic guitar in our living room, and just as I'm reaching to text him that he left his guitar here he texts me and says he accidentally took my guitar by mistake on his way out, and we can meet any time to trade back.

Judging by appearance, my guitar is not that nice. It has cracks and holes in it. But the cracks have settled the neck nicely and it actually plays/sounds great. Fred only played it for a short time and couldn't have gotten the full experience from it. Sentimental value of it for me is through the roof. Probably not worth anything at the pawn shop though. He left here an Ibanez, run-of-the-mill acoustic guitar you'd see anywhere. Probably worth $100.

I'm hopeful I will get it back, but I am skeptical. We agreed to meet downtown this afternoon to switch back but I called and did not receive a call back or text yet. Anyone wanna place bets on if I get it back or not?

yes...you'll get it back. Stop judging him by his appearance, sometimes poo happens.

Not judging, I'm just skeptical because the guitars were in separate rooms and look nothing alike...mine has a sunburst finish, and his is standard wood color.

As a guitar player I know where youre coming from. You don't accidently pick up someones elses guitar thinking it is yours. It just doesn't happen.

If you sub fugging for jamming and sex toys for guitars, it's a pretty funny story.
