Robb Flynn, frontman for the Grammy-nominated Oakland metal band Machine Head, had a very bad day Tuesday: He returned home from up picking up his son from school to find his Martinez home ransacked -- and two valuable guitars, including one given to him by the late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell -- missing.

"For me it's priceless," Flynn told KTVU. "I got it from the late 'Dimebag' Darrell. It was a gift from him."

Flynn said he believes he was targeted in the burglary. Along with the guitars, he lost jewelry, cash, and other valuables.

Flynn had just hung the two guitars on the wall a few days ago, shortly after returning from a tour on which Machine Head opened for Metallica. He is offering a $3,000 reward for the instruments' return.
