    Grammy-nominated East Bay rocker offers reward in guitar burglary.

    MARTINEZ -- A Grammy-nominated heavy metal frontman is offering rewards for guitars taken in a burglary at his home, including one given to him by a metal pioneer.

    Robb Flynn, of the East Bay-based Machine Head, said he came home after picking up his young son from school Tuesday afternoon to find that his home had been broken into. Missing were items including jewelry, computers, wakeboards and cash.

    Thieves also stole four high-end guitars, Flynn said. One, a black Ibanez Stratocaster, was used by Flynn to record Machine Head's first album, "Burn My Eyes." Another, a blue Washburn Dimebolt prototype, was given to him by the late Dimebag Darrell, of Pantera fame.
    "That is priceless to me," Flynn said, adding that the guitar's rarity would make it "really hard to sell."

    Flynn is offering a $2,000 reward for the Dimebolt and $1,000 for the Ibanez. He said police lifted fingerprints from two acoustic guitars handled by the thieves but left behind. They also took a mini Flying V guitar he bought for his son for Christmas.

    "They stole my son's guitar," Flynn said. "What a ... lowlife."

    Flynn, who moved his family to Martinez four months ago after touring with Metallica, earned a Grammy nomination for his band's 2007 release "The Blackening." He believes that whoever invaded his home was somehow familiar with what was inside.

    "It's not the work of teenagers doing a trash and grab," he said. "They knew I was going to be gone. They knew where to look."

    Neighbors told Flynn that they saw two suspicious vehicles: a green or teal American-made pickup, and a white full-sized work van.

    Anyone with information about the burglary can contact Martinez police at 925-372-3400 or Flynn's band at mike@machinehead1.com.
