Inthe pickers are asked to guess the first instrument produced by Gibson. In this post, appraiser explores the world of Gibson collectibles:
If you love vintage acoustic instruments, and want to know where the best values are — if your motivation is to have and play something that you love — then you may want to consider vintage Gibson instruments. Gibson is known for constantly coming up with new designs and clever marketing, which has resulted in big hits and misses, along with some variation in quality of construction. Through all that restless experimentation, they have produced some of the highest priced instruments in history, as well as some sleepers that can bring you lots of satisfaction for the money. To protect your investment, choose “collectible” instruments, meaning instruments that have been proven to hold their value or appreciate if you ever plan to sell or trade up.
