Gibson Hollow body elec. guitar - 1938 ES-100

Posted by Rick Burdick on Fri, 12/01/00 - 18:43:17.

Does anybody know where I can have my guitar valued, preferably in Connecticut, and/or where it can be restored ( the pickup is missing ) ?
It is an ES-100 dated 1938, serial no. DGE-3487, generally in good condition, though has had some minor cosmetic mods done to it.
I can be contacted on ginadick@webtv.net until 6 Dec., when I will be back in England on the other address.
PS...Would it be more valuable in the UK ?
THANKS !

Probably worth more in the UK, simply bacuase there are so much fewer such guitars over here. No idea on the value though. If the guitar's in the UK with you take it to a decent shop. reccomend Music Ground in Doncaster or Ivor Moirrants - if that's how you spell it - in London. There's obviously way more decent guitar shops in the UK but I'm familiar'ish with those two and Idon't know where you'll be. Incidentally, you'll probably get more selling it privately, of course.
