Bruce Springsteen's guitarist is robbed of four guitars

Bruce Springsteen's guitarist Nils Lofgren has been left devastated after four of his beloved guitars were stolen from his touring van. 

Lofgren, a member of Springsteen's E Street Band, was in Dallas for a sold out solo show on Friday when he discovered the van had been broken into overnight. 

The van was parked at a Holiday Inn Express where Lofgren, 66, was staying when the thief ran off with three Takamine acoustic guitars and a Fender Stratocaster.

An electric level harp and a toolbox belong to Lofgren's guitar tech was also missing, according to CBS DFW. 

'My whole life I've been a fairly gullible, positive person,' Lofgren told the station. 

'It gets a little impractical when you're doing one-nighters at the end of a long night to drag in half a ton of gear.'   

Lofgren's tour manager has estimated that the guitars were worth $10,000.

But it's the priceless memories each guitar holds that has made the robbery especially hard for Lofgren.
