Machine Head guitarist Robb Flynn is offering a reward for the safe return of priceless guitars stolen from his Northern California home earlier this week. He posted the following information on the band's website.
"Today, [Tuesday] September 7th, between the hours of 1:15 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. [PST] while I was picking my son up from school, my house [which is located in the Martinez/Virginia Hills area of California] was broken into and many priceless items were stolen. Items include my wife's jewelry, laptops, wakeboards, cash, and most importantly four of my guitars, including the guitar that I recorded [MACHINE HEAD's] first album, Burn My Eyes, with. Also stolen was a guitar that is priceless to me that was a gift from [late PANTERA guitarist]Dimebag Darrell [see pictures below]. The cocksuckers even stole my son Zander's mini Flying V I got him for Christmas.
"I am offering a $1,000 reward for the return of the black Ibanez Strat along with many stickers, a 'Designated Drinker' sticker. Additionally I am also 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 firstname.lastname@example.org immediately."
Pictured is the guitar Robb Flynn received as a gift from late PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott which was one of the items stolen from Flynn's home earlier today.
If you have information, please assist in getting these priceless items back to their rightful owner. Their value is beyond monetary.
How should the thieves be punished when caught?
