Specialized In Appraising Vintage Guitars & String Instruments

Are You Looking To Sell Your Vintage Or Antique Guitar?

I Appraise Vintage Guitars Online Or In Person

I’ve heard it a million times when people come in for vintage guitar appraisals: “There are guitars just like mine listed online from $300 to $3000. Which price is correct?” The answer? Usually neither one! Ascertaining the value of a vintage instrument is something that is learned over years of research and often through painful trial and error. A Google, Ebay, or Reverb search is simply not an effective way to find out what your guitar is worth in most cases. You may end up selling a $30,000 guitar for $10,000, or you may end up listing your guitar at an unrealistically high price point and wasting your time. Just take a look at the high priced vintage guitars listed by most dealers online, they have often been listed for years without selling!

    Helping Sellers Get Fair Pricing For Their Used Instruments

    Are you looking to sell a guitar? Are you simply wondering what your guitar is worth? Lucky for you, I’ve been through the years of research and the trial & error associated with buying and selling Gibson, Fender, Martin, Epiphone, Guild and other. It often only takes me a few minutes to determine an instruments current market value. For that reason, I offer free appraisals to anyone willing to email or text me photos of their instrument(s). All I ask in return is that you tell your friends about me and leave me a Google review online if your technological skills permit you to do so. ​

    Hey there! My name is Joe Dampt And I love old music and old guitars!

    I fell in love with the guitar as a youngster while listening to old music from the 50s and 60s. From then on, music has been my life, and I’ve sacrificed and worked hard to make music and musical instruments my livelihood. I love old guitars and musical instruments, but I love the MUSIC even more. I believe that guitars don’t do us any good if they just sit in a case. These beauties are meant to be played!

    I’ve performed in many local bands and my favorite styles to play are classic country/western music, swing & dance music, and classic rock & roll.

    Aside from music. I enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing and exploring the back country wilderness of the west.

    Your Testimonials!

    Joe came to my home and helped me with an appraisal. Instead of just giving me a number, he helped me understand why my guitar had the value that it had. Super helpful. Thanks!

    Joe was very kind to me and made sure I understood everything about my brother’s guitar collection. He paid me more than 4 other guitar shops offered. He surprised us by singing one of my brother’s favorite old songs while playing his old guitar.

    Friendly, responded quickly, prices seem to be best around. Best of all a set up means you get a setup, not just a big box guitar retail shop raising your action and saying the buzz is gone. Solved an immediate problem I had with a LP kit build where one PUP and the middle did not work. Solved on spot in 15 mins. Completed set up in two days. Now I have the weekend to play with my new creation. Will definitely be back again!!”
