Musical Instruments have great value above and beyond their use as tools to make music. An appraisal is a valuable document that allows the owner to protect their investment and insure an item or establish its value for resale.
Garrett Park Guitars owner, Rick Hogue, has been buying, playing and selling vintage, new and modern Collectible Guitars and related musical instruments since 1981. Recognized as the leading authority on Vintage and Collectible PRS guitars, Rick also has vast experience and knowledge of Fender, Gibson and all other American brands, and his appraisal provides accurate, up-to-the-moment market value evaluation. Rick is a member of the Vintage Guitar Magazine Price Guide Dealer Team and is also on the Fender Dealer Advisory Board.
Online appraisals can be done by providing photos, the serial number and a description of the instrument. The charge is $75 per instrument and, upon completion, the appraisal is mailed and/or emailed to the purchaser. Other important information that is required are any modifications or repairs that are not apparent in the photos.
For appraisals requiring the examination of 10 or more photos, a higher fee may apply. In-house, detailed point-by-point appraisals are also available evaluating, in-depth, the originality of an instrument and are priced on a case-by-case basis and will be completely examined and evaluated by Rick Hogue.
