Do you have a vintage instrument that you want to convert into cash?
I buy and restore stringed instruments and am always on the hunt for older guitars (and sometimes a ukulele, banjo or mandolin will work) to buy, and bring back to making music again. I buy American-made (prior to 1969) electric instruments and small amps too.
If your Gibson acoustic that was made prior to 1956, I'd like to hear about it. If your Martin acoustic was made before 1969, that would also be of interest.
If it's in great condition, that's super! Please send me info on it. If it needs work, or is scratched up, that is OK too. Just realize that condition is important to value and that repair work is expensive!
If you have questions as to what you have and what it is worth, I can likely help. I'll need to know serial numbers and see some photos.
