So Im making a list of assets in Quicken, and wanted to get an idea on what my guitars are worth? This isnt a for sale thread in disguise. Not selling anything. Never will. Just wanna know what a fair market value for my instruments is in this economy...I know what I paid for them, and what retail is or was when they were new, but Im looking for MARKET VALUE, ie what could I get for them if I was to sell them, or what would they go for in a retail setting.

1. 2001 Gibson Les Paul Standard. Nothing aftermarket

2. Ibanez S470DXQM with EMG 81/85 pickups. Not sure of year

3. Newest addition, still hasnt come in yet...Jackson DK2 in Crimson Swirl. Manufacturer refurbished, so assume that condition.

Gibson is in mint condition with a hardshell case, and Ibanez is excellent condition, but played.

Paid $1300 for the les paul which seems low. $550 for the ibanez about 6 years ago but i didnt know if the emgs added value. $500 for the jackson a few days ago.

Look on e-bay, that'll give you a pretty good idea what people are prepared to pay.

This. You can do a search for completed listings only so you see what they actually sold for, rather than what they were advertised for.

Swapping pickups and upgrading doesn't usually add any value to a guitar, if anything it de-values it.
