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:

Visit eBay

Search for your guitar on eBay. This will give you an idea of what the market is willing to pay.

Blue Books

Comprehensive information and up-to-date pricing on plenty of guitars.


Multitudes of guitar catalogs.

Online Appraisal

50 bucks for an appraisal from Gruhn Guitars out of Nashville, TN.

Dating your guitar

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.

Users who post often to the forums and make such requests are more likely to be helped out.

Aria Les Paul

Aria Les Paul serial number 764853
I came upon an Aria led Paul copy in great condition, burgundy finish , DiMarzio pickups, from what I researched it could be made around 1976 , rumours around guitarist friends of mine says that big lawsuit was pushed due to infringement of the copies of big named guitars back in the 70s /80s. Rumours don't tell me what I have or what it is worth. Thank you Julian H.


So, my guitar looks exactly like the JT-301 guitar. Except, when you scan every image of them, mine has one thing different. Under the Jay Turser signature it says Vintage Series.. I looked it up and nothing came up. I bought it at a music shop for a $1000, the guy didn't mention anything about it. Really need help finding out what it's worth!
