Guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn of San Francisco Bay Area group Machine Head had his home broken into between 1:15 PM and 3:15 PM PST on September 7th, 2010. Flynn and his family were not present during the invasion, and many items were stolen from his home. These items include the guitar that Flynn recorded Machine Head's first album, "Burn My Eyes," with, a gifted guitar from late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell, and Flynn’s son Zander’s mini Flying V; a gift he received from his family for Christmas. Other items stolen include Flynn’s wife’s jewelry, laptops, wakeboards, and cash.

"I am offering a $1,000 reward for the return of the black Ibanez Strat along with many stickers, a ‘Designated Drinker’ sticker,” announces Flynn. "Additionally, I am offering a $2,000 reward for the safe return of the blue Washburn Dimebolt prototype. An APB has been put out to every Guitar Center in Northern California and the police were able to get several fingerprints off of the two acoustics that the thieves handled, yet bizarrely left behind. Sightings of two suspicious vehicles have been reported, one a green/teal U.S.-make pickup truck, the other a white full-size work van. If anyone sees or hears of anything on Craigslist, eBay, at their guitar shop... anything, anywhere, Please contact us at mike@machinehead1.com immediately."

He definitely lost some important guitars. There can be only one debut album, so the guitar he used for it is super important. If that wouldn't be enough, a gift from Dime, and his son's guitar?
I'd say Mr. Flynn is slightly p***ed off.

Guitars in general, well as a guitarist myself, guitars are one of the most important items I have. The cost of the instrument is irrelevant, there's just so much emotional value attached to them.

This is happening more and more these days, i hope they find the scum that took Mr Flynn's guitars. I was lucky enough to see machine head support metallica last year. Amazing gig.

The fingerprints off the acoustics give me hope. I certainly do hope they find the idiot(s) who broke in.
