Re: Martin guitar appraisal

My neighbor is very ill and bed-ridden. She asked me to come to her home today, and play her old Martin guitar so she could listen to it once again. It is a Martin 00-18G, serial number 125470, which dates it to 1952. It plays beautifully and sounds wonderful, however, it has scars to match its age. It has a straight neck and smooth, fast action. It has a 2" barely noticeable crack on the back at the rear midline lamination. It has 2 areas about 1 cm in diameter where the finish has been rubbed off showing the bare wood (mahogany). The finish is very dark and almost smeared, however, it appears to be original, so I may be mistaken. At some point, someone glued a thick black plastic pick guard below the sound hole. I am not certain why they did this, since the face is not scratched or disfigured in that area. There is a small 1cm diameter decal on the top face that the owner said was placed to cover a chip in the finish. It has a guitar strap peg in the rear, which I do not know if it is original. This instrument is not pristine by any means, but is very playable and sounds terrific. The owner is past friends with numerous famous guitar artists (Andre Segovia, Alvino Rey and others) who have all played this guitar. She is the original owner and intends to leave it to her son, but would like an estimate of its real worth. It is likely that this guitar will not be sold, but the owner is curious of its worth.

Thank you for your time.

Fender Villager 12-str

I own a Fender Villager, bought new in 1971. Black body w/ natural neck. Partially refretted in 1992. Plays extremely well and is in great shape except for some temperature-related splits in the epoxy finish. Was thoroughly checked by a guitar shop and there are no structural problems. Comes with original hard case (w/new hinges and handle) and a Dean Markley pickup. Any ideas on a fair selling price? Any input would be appreciated.

value?

I have a guitar, about 20 years old and in mint condition. It's just a little pearl Yamaha SBG200. How could I go about finding a value for that. My husband seems to think it is worth $1000, I'm guessing not. Not looking to sell it, just an inside bet.
Thanks
Val

Umm no, it's like a sure bet it is not worth 1000... maybe. I own a black one and its in excellent condition as well. I paid only 200 for it not too long ago. Which is not to say it isn't an excellent instrument. For sound and vibe I choose it above my expensive guitars. But it may be a possibility that the pearly finish is like some wierd rarity or something. Who the hell knows. Someone I bet.

I have a pearly colored one too... I've always hated the look of the guitar (the shape)... I named it "Fug Leigh" (fugly). I've read what some people have said they purchased the guitar for (used), and the prices have ranged from 300-500 bucks... My dad bought it for me when I was seven off of a guy for 100... That was about 10 years ago.

Gibson appraisal

I have a 1979 les paul custom with a sunburst finish and have spent the last two hours trying to find out a ball park figure of its worth on the internet but have encountered nothing but ads. Some help would be appreciated. The guitar plays and sounds awesome but has some wear. Also the pickups may or may not be original.

Re: Gibson appraisal

i inherited an old guitar from my uncle in good shape. i dont know the exact year, but my uncle bought it used 16 years ago, so i know it is at least that old. it is an accoustic 12 string from gibson. it sounds great, has a little wear and tear, and looks very folkish. i heard somewhere that gibson accoustics were rear and so i wanted to check it out.

Fender Jaguar

i want to buy a Fender Jaguar from a local store in Phx, AZ. the guitar was made in 1964, plays great, stays in tune
(i played it for a while it really does play great). The only draw backs are that the gold paint job is not its original
paint job, though it does look nice. the guitar head doesn't have the original FENDER JAGUAR writting on it.
A Fender expert has seen the guitar to verify and granted a new fender jaguar logo that is placed on the guitar head.
I don't want to get ripped off , please help. they want $ 950 for it. i think i want it for $800 - $850. What do you guys
think? THanks a lot!

Re: Fender Jaguar

Hello,
I have a 1964 Jaguar, Worn but still plays great. Original paint, chipped in spots, but all the head decals and such are intact.
I was wondering what sort of interest there is in a vintage electric such as this. I was told not to refinish it or touch up the assorted dings in the paint. Is this true? I will leave it alone for now. Might even consider selling it or trading it off for the right instrument. Any ideas? Please e-mail me if you like .
Thanks, Kev

Martin Guitar

I have a Martin Guitar D-16T. I would like to know it's value and the date it was made.

Re: Martin Guitar

: I have a Martin Guitar D-16T. I would like to know it's value and the date it was made.
I think you have a D-16GT, the GT stands for "gloss top". The guitar was probably made in the late 1990's and is worth 500-900 dollars.

Re: Martin Guitar

actually the d-16t came before the GT. It dates back to somewhere between 1993 and 1995. They are not worth too much, unfortunately. A good frame of reference is the SPD-16T, the special edition version from the same time period. The SPD version had gold tuners, bigger snowflake inlays, and abalone inlay around the soundhole. Today that version consistently sells for about $500 to $600.

I used to own a D-16T but sold it for $299, and it was mint condition.

1951 Martin 00021 great condition

I would like to know how much this guitar is worth. I had one appraisal for $4000.00. Is this in the ball park?

Re: 1951 Martin 00021 great condition

: I would like to know how much this guitar is worth. I had one appraisal for $4000.00. Is this in the ball park?

Jim -- what is the condition of the guitar? If it's it's not a "beater" it could be worth 4K.

If you still have it, email me at WKLEN@AOL.COM.

S. Yairi guitar

Hi,
I own a classical guitar that was built by the Japanese luthier S.
Yairi. I think the S stands for Sadao. The model no. is 700. I
purchased it used in 1985, but it is still in mint condition. Do you
have any idea what is would appraise at?

Re: S. Yairi guitar

I have an Sadoa Yairi Guitar, 1970, no model number, but it is #49 for the year and is Clase J ot T 029. The symbol looks like a pointy J that is crossed like a T. It has been a wonderful guitar, but the head was recently broken in an auto accident. I am trying to find a replacement for the insurance adjustor but am having trouble. Any ideas? I only paid $65.00 for it but my internet search is showing $500 - $700. Thanks for your help.

August Pollmann

Can you help me discover a history behind this guitar? A friend of mine mentioned that he had an old guitar that was laying around the house. I suggested that he bring it out and we'd play a bit. I was intregued when I saw what he had.

Here are the features I noticed: It's parlor size; the unbound neck is one piece with a "V" shape; the headstock is slotted; the top is solid spruce; the sides/back appear to be solid rosewood; the sound hole inlay consists of simple black strips plus a herringbone strip; the purfling is solid wood. The frets were not rounded but rectangular in shape - maybe 1/8" tall by 1/64" in diameter. I could not find a serial number anywhere but did find a white circle about the size of a quarter on the headstock with a faint writing that said: "August Pollmann's Professional Royal". I think this circle was made out of a plastic material. Can you suggest a history behind this instrument?

Thank you.

martin guitar appraisal

I have a Martin guitar, model # 000 28C. I have contacted the MArtin factory, and they said that of the approximately 560 guitars of this model made between 62 and 69, mine was the last - and only - made in 69. It is in VERY good shape, virtually no scratches on the sound board, etc. How much is it worth?
