Are You Considering Selling A Guitar Or Other Musical Equipment?
What's It Worth? Slow Down!  Don't Get Ripped Off Like I Did!

DO NOT BE IN A HURRY TO SELL A GUITAR OR OTHER MUSICAL EQUIPMENT!Did you know that many guitars and amplifiers are worth thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars?  As a matter of fact, some older Fender, Gibson, Martin and other guitars are worth more than $100,000.  Yes that number is one hundred thousand dollars. 

Don't let what happened to me happen to you!

  • I traded a 59 Les Paul Jr. for a 1981 Les Paul Artist in 1992.  The Artist was priced $1,200.  I found out too late the Junior was worth $3,000 - $4,000.  I had no idea it was worth that much at the time of the trade. -  Music Store Transaction - (FYI - In 2016 it is worth $6,000 - $8,000)
  • I sold a 1954 Les Paul Custom '72 Reissue Limited Edition for $400 in 1984 (before the internet).  At the time it was worth closer to $2,000 but I did not know that. - Private Sale -  (in 2016 it is worth $6,000 - $8,000).
  • A friend sold a late 60's Marshall Super Lead amp head for $800.  It was worth $4,000 to $5,000.  -  Private Sale
Some people sell $5,000 guitars for $500 every day. Don't let that happen to you.
I learned the hard way.  I have done extensive research on guitars, basses, amps, effects, speakers, cabinets, guitar cases, etc. to determine value while helping other instrument owners.. I can help level the playing field by helping you find out what something is worth.  I have price guides, old catalogs, serial number lists, etc. and the internet. 

People sell $5,000 guitars for $500 every day.  Don't let that happen to you.
