I was wondering, what is the most expensive guitar owned by a UG'er? Either purely by it being kick-ass, being vinatge or signed/owned by someone famous. If you think you're a contender, add a pic so we know your not making it up and say how much its worth.

EDIT: just looked at the new sticky thread and realised this should be in electric guitar, I put it here so it could include acoustics, sórry.

I saw somebody with a PRS Private Stock Semi Hollow in their gear sig. I'm betting either a PRS or a vintage will win.

True, i'd put the mean at about £350, i think thats about $500. Or maybe less if you count peoples shitty acoustics that they never use.

i have my late grandfather's 1958 fender jazzmaster hand-made by leo fender. $35,000.

i don't have pics (and i don't know where my father has put it to take any). it's sunburst with a lot of wear on the finish around where his right arm would be. my dad had it restrung and cleaned up a little bit (not modified at all) to display it at his wake.

apparently his first guitar (which was stolen in germany) was worth even more as he bought it from johnny cash's guitarist (the one who burned himself to death by accident).

so be on the look out, germans!

If my Gibson acoustic was in good condition, it'd be worth $2,500. Too bad it's a bit scratched up.

I'll play with my '63 Gretsch Chet Atkins DBL Cutaway, Hollowbody with Simulated F Holes. About 3k on Ebay last time I looked. I know I don't have the most expensive.

okay primusfan definately needs pics


my dad has a lot of pictures of it when my grandfather was still playing regularly, but i don't know if we have any of it currently. i just went through the home desktop, but i don't know where they are. oddly enough, my widowed grandmother will be here in 15 minutes ... just weird timing i suppose.

MusicMan Stingray Bass ^^. Not sure how much it's worth, but I got it for £60... According to eBay it's a lot more. It's the only picture I have on here next to my Les Paul. I'm too lazy to go and take another one.

by the way, if anyone would like to "purchase" some of my grandfather's music, he played lead guitar on quite a few of the tracks on this compilation. trying to find the personnel list to see exactly which ones he was on. when i do, maybe the songs will be on youtubez:

how is it advertising? it's free.

i just posted it as the only thing close to evidence that i have of my grandfather owning an original '58 jazzmaster. the case being that he is on studio recordings ... in the late 50s and early 60s.

but continue with the anti-mod campaign.

I know it won't win or probably even be anywhere near the top, but just to add the thread I've got a 1947 Gibson J45 that my grandfather bought brand new. The reason it's not worth crazy money is because he refinished it however many years ago for playability reasons before he died. He was an amazing carpenter. The sound of it is like nothing else I've ever heard, especially any modern acoustics.

I also have a hand-built dobro that he made. Our local high-end guitar shop owner offered him $3,000 on the spot for when he brought it in just to show them. I have that one, my dad has one, my uncle has one, and my grandmother still has the one my grandfather played all the time. These were the only four he built and the quality is unbelievable.

I'm hoping I have the time down the road to really learn how to play it well.
