  • What is the future of Gary Moore's guitars?

    I still can't believe Gary Moore is dead. I wonder now what will become of his guitar collection. I read a posting on his official website that he had recently bought some new guitars before he took a holiday to Spain with his girlfriend. I'm curious if Ronnie Montrose will try to purchase/claim the 1959 Les Paul that Gary supposedly has in his collection as Ronnie had filed a lawsuit against Gary back two years ago? If I had the cash, I would be keen to buy one of Gary's guitars.

    In the absence of a will the probate court will most likely decide.

      His kids will most likely inherit what he has. The Peter Green LP was sold last year so thats his most expensive gone already.
      Before you judge somebody, walk first a mile in their shoes. Then at least you'll be a mile away from them and have a new pair of shoes!!!!!!!!

        I will wager that the guitars of Gary Moore will not become probate court fodder. WAAAAAYYY too much value and historical significance there.

        In addition to the alleged "Montrose Les Paul" Gary had some other very choice pieces. There will be some high offers. Gary's carer is about to enter a solid upward phase of popularity as various record and communication industries make their moves to cash in, or 'get while the gettin's good'. Barring any legal obstacles, Gibson will probably do more than only increase their MSRP on the Gary Moore BFG Les Paul. Many will be reminded of Moore by those who have a way figured out to profit from it.

        If he wasn't already, Gary is about to become way too big for his gear to be surrendered.

          Did he really not have a will?

            Some people never realise to plan. Guess it's hard to right something for your death though.

              That's so unbelievably fiscally irresponsible of his manager(s) to allow that to happen

                That's terrible that he has no will. It's a shame that there was no planning for such a possibility of death.

                  Has it been established that there was no will or is it just speculation?

                    i have come to the conclusion that he is some form of god. no mere mortal has that many guitars/pedals/amp/anything. "It boggles my mind. His collection is the most glorious and true expression of GAS.To each his own though. Amazing collection of beauties. It takes some seriously messed up OCD to compile a collection like that.I hate BBreaker. Damn, I hate him.Suck it.We learned that bbreaker is some sort of god. A god of whine.fk this guy.

                      I never said he didn't have a will, I said in the absence of one. If you haven't taken care of business in advance then the government has authority over the final disposition of your treasure/estate.

                        Whatever happens to them, it could never be as good as GM playing them.

                            Understood. Hopefully he has a will so that his property is handled fairly.

                              I can't begin to think about the in fighting that could happen with GM's guitars/property.
                              My brother-in-law passed away from a long bout with ALS . He was a guitarist.
                              I visited my sister and I was cleaning up his guitars. There was a big deal by their 2 daughters (spoiled lazy brats) who were fighting over the guitars.
                              It's a nasty unpleasant situation.
