Amy Winehouse: in the market for a new guitar.

Bad news for Amy Winehouse fans hoping that the singer will soon begin writing songs for her new album - she's apparently had five guitars stolen from her North London home.

The Sun reports that thieves broke through her front door last night. They're said to have made off with the guitars, digital recording gear and a flatscreen TV.

The tabloid reports that £15,000 worth of gear was taken in all.

An apparently "devastated" Winehouse is currently holidaying in the Caribbean, but is said to be planning to start work on new material in the near future.

Whether the burglary will delay things remains to be seen.
