When it comes to the vintage anything, condition is everything. We inspect a guitar's current condition to determine its effect on the value.


Throughout a guitar's lifetime, it is subject to a lot of wear and tear and will need maintenance and repairs to keep it in the best playable condition.


There are many different makers of guitars and each one creates their own models. One of the first things we research about a guitar is the desirability or rarity of a certain make or model.


Every once and a while, we come across an incredibly significant piece of music history. Guitars have been used by musicians for centuries to influence people, culture, and music as a whole.


Serial numbers are used by guitar manufacturers to track important information about a guitar throughout its life. We use this to accurately date the guitar and confirm its authenticity.


Certain materials used in the manufacturing of guitars are no longer used or are used less often. These factors can influence the price of the guitar, how you travel with it, and more.
