How to Find Out the Age and Value of a Guitar

How to Find Out the Age and Value of a Guitar



 







 











1.Clean the guitar and inspect it. If the guitar is dirty or dusty, take a damp (not wet) cloth or use a polish or polish treated handi-wipe (such as Murphy's Oil cloth or Fender / Gibson polish) and wipe it down, taking note as you go of the details. Do you see inlay or detailed carvings in the wood? Is the guitar even made of wood at all? Or is it made of plasticine or particle board?






Are the tuning knobs ornate or heavy? Made of metal or bone, even? Or are they made of plastic or missing altogether?




What about the condition of the guitar? Does it appear to be old? New? In good shape? Heavy? All of these are clues telling you about the value of the guitar.




  • For example, if it has ornate carving or details, it is probably old or hand made, giving it more value. If it is heavy, it is probably made of a better wood. If it is in good shape, it is worth more than if it is missing parts or in need of repair.


Regardless of its shape, if it is a certain name brand of guitar, it may be of some value none-the-less.




Also, are you sure it's a guitar? Does it have 6 strings? If it has 4 (naturally, not missing 2 strings), it could be a ukulele. If it has 5, it could be a banjo. If it has 4 doubled side by side or 6 doubled side by side, it could be a mandolin or a 12 string guitar.











2.Find the name of the maker on the headstock. Once the guitar is clean and you've made some observations about the condition and details of the guitar, observe the headstock and determine if you can find the name of the guitar's maker. What does it say? Gibson? Fender? Martin? All of those are reputable guitar makers. Regardless, just because you've never heard of the maker doesn't mean it's valueless. However, the name of the maker can hold important details about when it was made, as some guitar companies are no longer in business and operated during distinct periods in history which might give you an idea of when the guitar was made



 


 




 



3.Try to find hidden details or a serial number if applicable. Look inside the sound hole of the guitar (the big hole in the center of the body of the guitar, duh!) and see if you can make out any more details. Is there a serial number or a city or year written on the paper inside of the hole? Is there any paper or details at all? There may not be. 





4.Make sure to inspect the back and bottom of guitar. If it is an electric guitar, turn it over and look at the back. See if you can find a serial number or any additional details on any of the metal or parts. 








5.Organize your findings. Once you've gathered your details, write them down - the guitar's maker the brand of guitar if there is one (i.e., Fender Telecaster), the size, the weight ("heavy" or "light" is a good start), the type of wood if you recognize it, etc. Also make note of any damage. This might include nicks, dents, discoloration or fading on the paint, broken strings, cracks in the wood, missing tuning pegs, etc. 








6.Research your findings. Do a Google search for the guitar maker and brand. If you can find it listed on eBay multiple times and the prices are within the same range, there's a good chance that's the value of the guitar. However, if your model is a bit different - if it looks older, better, somehow snazzier, it could be worth more. Don't take eBay's word for it; go to the library, music or antique store, pawn shop or talk to a guitar expert to get a 2nd opinion. A carpenter or woodworker might also have an idea of the value. The name of someone who works with, builds and fixes guitars is a "luthier", so do a search in your phone book or online to see if you can find one in your community.

 





7.Compare it to photos of guitars you find. You might try typing the name into Google and then clicking on "Image" and trying to cross reference it by the hundreds of photos that will come up. 











8.Find a guitar expert in a guitarist's natural habitat. If all these efforts leave you info-less, try going to a local open mic and asking someone with a guitar to give it a look. Look for someone who plays well or who looks like a hippie (long hair, beard, older, faint odor of patchouli). Most guitarists appreciate seeing other people's guitars, especially if it's something unique or of value.








9.Display the guitar. Now that it's all cleaned up and looking good, get a wall hanging guitar hook or a guitar stand and put it somewhere that it will be seen. If all your searches and hippie shake downs turned up nothing, eventually, someone will come along, pick it up and tell you everything there is to know about it. 










10.Be patient. You might not find the information you want to right away, but when you do, you might realize that you have a treasure on your hands, or you may find the thing is just a regular old guitar. Either way, a guitar is a great item to have around the house. Even a poor quality guitar holds value in that when a person who knows what they're doing with it picks one up, it brightens the whole room.



Music can be played on any guitar in working condition, regardless of its value. Even worthless and broken guitars make great decorations, planters, canvases, art or sculpture material, props or can be sold for parts or traded for an item of personal value to you. There's a good use for any and every guitar.








Tips



  • Don't forget to ask friends or family if they know anyone who collects or appraises guitars. You never know who your friends know.


  • Take a class on guitar making if you'd like to learn more about how to build, appraise, play or collect guitars.


  • If the guitar does have a lot of value, consider donating it to a museum or school for a tax write off or for the sheer joy of giving.

That Time of Year Again - Halloween Songs 2014

That Time of Year Again - Halloween Songs 2014 Yep it is that time of year again. Halloween Songs for 2014!! As many of you know, for the last 8 or 9 years we have been doing Halloween Songs and it has always been fun. Considering all of the "site songs" we do, this has probably been the favorite from everyone. 

If you have not done one before, here is how it works. Create your spookiest or funniest Halloween Song you can. You have plenty of time to get it done and also enough time to find other artists to work with if you want to collaborate. Vocals are not required so do not feel like you have to have them in. 

Obviously the due date will be Oct 31st but if at all possible, let's try and get them in by October 25th. This will give our DJ's plenty of time to get them added into their shows. When you upload them, please use a genre of "Halloween 2014" so we can find them easy. I will see if I can get some added from prior years so you can have a listen and get some ideas. 

Please post if you have any questions!!

Song Review Updates Made Easier

I just wanted to let everyone know that we added a small icon on the New Song Page with a small pen on it. When clicked it will bring up a window to add song reviews. This is much easier I think.  I will be adding these to all of the chart pages soon also. I may need to tweak the popup size a bit since it auto resizes and I think it is a bit large on some computers. Your mileage may vary :).

Thanks,

Todd

VIRUS 2 -the combat

VIRUS 2 -the combat




at 5 o clock precisely



routinely got out of bed



used my yoga meditation right



travelled the world from toes to head



 


and now that I have sort of



fought that loving battle game



I tell me how I feel



tellin' you I don't feel the same


 















you're tryin to tell a story


in my head I can hear you sing


your highpitched numbing sound


a not too unpleasant thing


 


you're tryin to make me yours


multiplying inside my body


I welcome the resistance


although it makes me snotty


 


you're tryin to wear me down


by settling inside my bronchae


you're a pretty vicious thing


at least that's what you tell me


 


you're tryin to seduce me


by makin me sleep strange hours


while on my turf you seed weed


I'm elsewhere pickin flowers


 


you're tryin to embrace me


in your cozy countless arms


but you're also upsetting my stomach


she won't fall for your churning charms


 


won't give myself to you


for I am not even mine


to the same source we belong


but hey here you're way out o'line


 


now listen little virus


you're fighting a loosing battle


if you'd make me disappear


where in heavens' would you settle


 


now that I've identified you


while knowing myself a bit better


my words they tell us where to go


so let's follow them to the letter


 


I take another sip of water


it contains some lemon juice


I follow it travel inside me


my own sword crossin' the flu's



Have a great one Y'All!
Love, Marco

AYAYAYAYAY

AYAYAYAYAY
AYAYAYAYAY should have 


recorded a musicvideoclip


 


but decided not to 'coz 


I didn't think I looked too hip


 


I also had some problems with


ahum usually excellent musicianship


 


and this morning oooh this morning


I'm still in a bit of a dip


 


today should be going to MAWA NPO


but hmmm I think I'm gonna cancel that trip


 


and stick a thermometer in the space 


between my busy brain and bottom lip


 




to you I give the song I recorded last night
to me I give myself an outstanding tip 





 


I should seriously attempt to get rid 


of this flu that's got me in its' grip


 


Have a nice day Y'All!


Love, Marco


 


ps Martyna, Hagit, soon will send the stuff so please don't flip


pps now I'm out of words, at least words that rhyme with ip
