Fossil Help with valuation of guitars (14) RE: Help with valuation of guitars 05 Jan 14

You don't mention the purpose of getting a valuation. I would have thought that, unless it is for insurance or probate purposes, the widow's best interests would be served by disposing of the guitars on eBay, possibly over a period of time, then the market will set the value.

As has been said above, there really isn't enough information on age or condition of the guitars to enable anyone on Mudcat to give an accurate valuation, but having said that, there are some magic names there and the whole collection would undoubtedly be very valuable.

If a valuation figure for each guitar really is necessary, I see no alternative to bringing in an expert and paying for their services. A few calls around the larger music stores in your vicinity might provide some suitable names of people who could do this. Or maybe, *that* is the question you should be asking the Mudcat to provide...
