Unfortunately, i have inherited guitars and I know nothing about them. Serial number searches, who can do this, I'm finding nothing online. Not getting ripped off again by Guitar Center. Any advice ? Its a beautiful Blonde in mint condition , Gibson leather case with hot pink furry lining . Someone needs to be enjoying this guitar not sitting in a closet.

Please provide serial number, photos of guitar, including a full body shot and one of back of headstock, as well as description of condition and/or if it is all original or has any modifications, and members here can help you authenticate it and provide a ballpark current market value.

Gruhn's in Nashville can also provide a solid value for a fee, but they are the authority on vintage.

I found this finally last night online from the serial number. I will post photos of the guitar . As far as i know its original. But, i never touched his guitars and we did not discuss . He said $6000 to someone who wanted it before he passed 7 years ago . I will take pictures and post . Thanks for assistance.

Hello again,

I Finally got the photos to post. Any assistance is appreciated. I have zero information about the guitar except what I have posted. I know that years ago, before he passed, someone wanted it, and he stated $6000. Is this accurate? I have no idea, but I want to sell it so it can be played. It appears to be lonely and needs to be enjoyed.

Thank you

Hi,

I need information on my late husband's guitar. I have zero knowledge of guitars and would like to sell this without being taken advantage of. This guitar should be enjoyed, not hidden away for another seven years. Any help is appreciated. I appreciate any help you can provide.

Very nice. What country are you in? Someone here will be able to offer you a sensible idea as to value - they'll be along soon no doubt - and the Members Classifieds here are as good a place to sell it as any (and better than most). Good luck with the sale and sorry for your loss.
