Okay, you've just found a junk pile acoustic in your basement. It has a mark on it which is either wet damp setting in or Bo Diddley's signature. Your pretty sure it's Bo's signature though, so you turn to the net to confirm. Which brings us to you being here. Is your guitar worth 44 cents or 44 thousand?

Chances are it's not even worth 44 cents or his signature, but rather a good sign the foundations of your house are about to cave in. Nevertheless, if you like turning a blind eye to reality (and who doesn't), here's how to find out:

If all else fails

Ask us here in the forum. But please remember to provide pictures and as much information as possible. It takes us a fair bit of time to research the guitars people ask us about, so we can't check everyone.

Hi people, not shure how this works its the first time I use a forum. I repair guitars and I bought this BC RICH LA SERIES ( on head stock ),It has a soloist body shape, floating floyd rose ,active pick ups and diamond inlays on rosewood neck. Also the neck plate reads Serial number BC1954 L.A. California USA . All gold hardware and all seems to be origanal. I started to tear down this old girl to re build her but I can't find any info thats of value to me, what year is it? how many were made? Hopefully someone can help?

Hey guys,

I'm just wondering how much my old Gibson acoustic is worth. I searched the serial number and I think it might have been made in 1967, but I have no idea what I'm doing so I might be wrong.

Anyway, the serial number is: 884874 and there's a 2 under that number.

The serial number is pressed into the wood on the back of the headstock. As far as I know, the tuning pegs are original as well.

I'm just hoping I can know a little bit about it before I bring it in to the music store.

Thanks a lot for your help!

I know its a Epiphone Beast FX 2001 Limited Edition

Hi guys I'm new to guitars and this foru] sorry for posting in here first before any were els but ill be having a good snoop around looks like a great site

Any way I was given a classical guitar by a close friend he doesn't know anything about it other than it has been in his house for at least 20 years. It contains a sticker saying, union musical espanola (antes cassa dotesio) Carrera De San jeronimo, 26 y arena, 18 Madrid, paz 15 - valencia I'm not sure of age, I was told it is hand made and I'd like to know the price because I'd be interested in exchanging it for an acoustic many thanks in advance Tony

Hi all, I know absolutely nothing about guitars and have found a morris gx tornado in my loft. Now I have checked the whole of the internet and can not find any info on this model, could some please advise as to how much it is worth and where I could sell it.

Hello! I have a Lauren acoustic guitar that I won many years ago that I would like to get an idea of its value.

The guitar is a Lauren model LA125 that is signed by members of the Great White and TESLA. Below are some pictures.

Small Vinci guitar acoustic

I'm just trying to figure out anything about this guitar. Worth details. It's smaller than an adult guitar. I wanted to post a picture but I'm unsure how to on this site. It's model vu2 and has a sn number.

What my guitar value

I've had this 1998-1999 squire strat and I've been trying to find out more and more about it. It is a lake placid blue everything's original except the tone/volume knob and the tremolo cover. I have searched every where and this is my last hope. It does have a few dents and chips.
