  • Rock's "Most Valuable Guitars" Hmmmm... what say you?

    Interesting list (maybe most interesting for what's NOT on the list... no Page #1 or 2, no Pearly Gates, no Green/Moore LP, etc.)

    Most of them are based on what they sold for at auction.

    With some small exceptions like Keefs LP (which has an estimated value in line with other bursts).

    Page's and the Rev's would fall in that same window.



    The ones that make me curious would be the unique ones..

    Rick's Custom Hamers

    FZ's SG



    Stuff like that.

      My vote goes to the Old Lady (Red Special) .... one of a kind, home built by a father and son, launched and sustained a long, creative career..... can't put a value on that...

        I would add Rory Gallagher's beat up Strat and Frampton's triple pickup Les Paul Custom, which he recently recovered after thought to have been lost in a plane crash (there is a NY Times article on that). Sorry, but Page's double-neck would have to be up there too. How about Bruce Springsteen's original Tele? Also, Prince's guitar from Purple Rain.



        Any of Jimi's guitars. His black LPC and the Strat from Woodstock and a few more are at the Experience Music Project in Seattle. That place is definitely worth a visit. Much more than just Jimi stuff there too.



        One more per Wikipedia, (wonderful source that it is) "Described as the first guitar Hendrix set fire to, another of his Stratocasters was sold at an auction for a record price in London two years later in 2008. Daniel Boucher, an American collector from Boston, paid 280,000 pounds sterling or $497,500 US Dollars for the guitar."

                The values are crazy. Anyway, it's clearly not a list of iconic guitars, otherwise Ace Frehley's would be the triple pickup one, and I argue that Hendrix's burned-up Monterey Pop Strat should be on the list instead of the white one, but that one didn't sell for as much. As everyone knows, auction prices depend heavily on circumstance - two rich guys fighting to outbid each other will of course overpay for one of those things, but they'd certainly sell for less if there wasn't the opportunity for a bidding war that large. A million+ for some of those? Good luck finding another buyer willing to pay that much, I'd say.

                      Yeah, there's some interesting stuff there, but I agree. I think the Peter Green/Gary Moore LP should top the list. Not only was it owned and played by 2 of the most famous rock guitarists, but they actually both kept and played the guitar for long periods. Plus, where the hell is SRV's No. 1 ?

                        EVH's Frankenstrat is probably the most extreme example of a guitar's value that's based almost entirely on provenance.



                        The more I learn about that guitar, the more I learn what a piece of **************** it really is. God, what a hack Ed was on the workbench. But he played the everlovin' crap out of it, and there's a ton of history made on it.

                          Kinda surprised at the V and Explorer, not really the most user friendly designs. Seems to have more to do with user association than anything unless it's a Strat or LP from the 50s.

                            I believe it is in the possession of Jimmie Vaughan. It's never been sold at auction.
