It depends.

If I grow to an old age I'll have some old guitars.

I'm sure my kids or Grandkids will play and I'll probably pass them on.

No kids, currently, nor any significant other. Because of this, I have no will: were I to die right now, everything would go to my parents. At some point, I will have a will, and probably a few other testamentary documents. I have told my mom what I would do with my instruments if I did have a will.

Assuming there is no one who I feel deserves them, I intend to have my instrument collection used in one or more school music programs, possibly as part of a scholarship program. The main question to me is how they would be held- IOW, would the instruments be donated to a particular school or programs, or would there be a trust that holds the instruments, and distributes them to worthy applicants to use as part of a scholarship.

Leave them to someone who appreciates and plays decent guitars.

That's because you've been dead for 5 years already :p

I will probably just give them to one of my friends or something. It's up to them what they decide to do with it.

i would pass my guitars and amps down to my children someday,

but i will donate my brass instruments to my middle school all the way up in Minnesota.
some of my instruments are quite valuable but i would like to know that they would be appreciated, and where i was there it was a poorer area, where parents couldn't find the funds for their children's instruments, and have them be provided with them.

my most valuable trumpet would go back to the friend who gave it to me earlier this year. i was 1st chair the whole way and he was 2nd. and we grew up together from age five. it is probably worth $3k+ as it is vintage.

Has anyone else found the question asked by the TS kinda suspicious considering his name?

Have never seen a U-Haul following a hearse. Can't take em with me, When I'm gone, I hope someone else enjoys playing them, or can help out a family member get some money.

This may be slightly off topic, but I once played a dead mans guitar. He had left it to his best friend, and it had sat collecting dust for years because he couldn't bear to play it. I was over one day and he had me string 'er up and plug it in. He wanted to hear it again, but couldn't bear to play it himself. Take what you will from this, but I swear that guitar had more mojo than anything I've ever played up until then, or since.

I actually have this all written in my will. (it's a pretty short will since the only valuables I have are my guitars

My favorite strat that my grandpa gave me goes to my dad for safe keeping until someone wants it

My old acoustic because I don't trust her not to put it on hock

My new strat goes to my cousin because she's the only one who plays that's family

And my malibu ce goes to my nephew I hopes he'll be more likely to pick it up if it's something smaller

Putting on my wills & estate hat for a minute- make sure you have some kind of conditional distribution plan in your will as well.

If a testamentary gift fails because the intended recipient predeceases the testator (or is treated as having done so for legal reasons), and there is no alternative disposition, that gift will be treated as passing by intestacy in many states.

I'd like mine to be passed on to my immediate family although both my sons have never learnt to play, to my disappointment.
It wouldn't bother me if they kept or sold them, whatever made them happy really.

What do you want to happen to your guitar(s) when you die?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have given this question some thought for quite a while as I am getting closer to death with every day that live. Of my three children, the youngest has shown some interest in a guitar. He bought a $25 jewel some 30 years ago and I replaced it a few years later with a $112 Strat copy. He plays for his own enjoyment and still plays that guitar today.
I bought my 1959 Jazzmaster new thinking I might learn how to play. After about 4 years I realized that wasn’t going to happen so I put it under the bed. I let him play it an hour or so from time to time over the past several years thinking he might get an attachment to it. I have told him that it is his when I die if I don’t sell it first. He has always said “sell it”.
I bought a 2000 American Standard Strat new in 2000. I unpacked it, removed all the protective coverings, installed the whammy bar, strummed it a time or two to see if everything worked, put it back in the case with all the paper work, then back in the box it came in, then stored it in the back of my closet. I haven’t seen thet guitar since tucked away on 2000. There is a note on it giving it to him. One way or another, I will be leaving at least one, if not both, of “my” guitars along with amps & effects to him.
