Selmer-Combo #8459

My friend gave me a selmer-combo guitar, and so far its a pretty good guitar. I was wondering if its worth any thing, or just any basic facts. The model # is 8459. If any one knows anything please reply. Thanks.

During this last summer, I bought a Combo guitar at a flea market for 60 dollars. I am in a guitar class at my school. My friends and even my teacher have told me that the action is high on the guitar. I have searched all over the inside and out of the instrument and I cannot find the screw that adjusts the action. I have searched online and have not found anywhere any information about Combo. All I know is that it is made by Selmer and the model # on the inside is also GS10. If anyone can give me any information, it would be greatly appreciated. End if anyone can tell me where the action screw is, that would also be greatly appreciated. You can email me at ryanboiselle@yahoo.com. Thank you.

I have same thing but model number GS12. The pegs are really loose and won't stay in tune. I dunno if it's worth a lot or anything. There's no info anywhere.

On another site it said they were worth 40 To 80 dollars.i just bought one for 30 dollars.

I have looked for mine also to no avail. Mine is from the 60's and was made in Indiana-USA. I know it's now Conn-Selmer, but they have no information, so I can save you on that one. Write to me and tommorow I will check it out better. I'm at a library now and they are closing.

One was in a 1999 Time Magizine that some Jazz guy loved and he paid $5K for it. They sound great. Mine is solid maple/spruce top and back, mahogony sides and neck. Ebony fingerboard, but the 'thin' alabaster finger marks are missing. The sound is sweet and it only plays well with the D' Adaro J 43 D'Arte' strings. Don't waste your money on anything else if it's a classical. They are 'extra light' stings and sound 'sweet and soft'. Hard strings are difficult to maintiain tune on this unit and takes away from the true 'ring' of the body.

I'm looking for tuners for mine, but wanted orginials......can't even find the darn guitar.

My guitar is the same as discribed...also has a model number GS10. I also would like some info on the instrument.

Combo guitar by Selmer made in USA

I was just given this little cool guitar. Model 8453 Combo. It is in rough shape but I'm taking it to a shop today for some fix up. It reminds me of my first guitar in 1958. I wonder if it is of any value outside of seeming to be a fairly well made extremely light guitar. It has metal strings but I will maybe put nylon on it for students with tender fingers. Anyone know anything about these guitars?

I was just given a GC40 model, old beautiful sounding classical. Serial # starts 740 as well. I love it. Never seen one before, and info seems to be limited.

: Mine is exactly like what you guys are describing! Also the prefix of my serial number is in the 740's with 5 digits after that (if that means anything..) I can't find any pictures or information on it either. It definitely doesn't have the Selmer style D-hole, which is all I've been able to find pictures of on the net. It's really too bad, I want to know what year my guitar was made in because it was my mom's in the late 60's or 70's
