Looks quite vintage with the pedals. From the looks of it, looks like it could be worth something.

I think I am the first to mention it here sadly but sorry to hear of the passing of your father. The guitar and gear that has been left to you is nice, keep hold of them all.

I had a red airline 335 copy I bought from montgomery ward (remember them?) and it played very nicely. I remember the chromed pickups looked weird, it had diamond shaped cutouts on top with white plastic showing underneath. I didn't find it in the link but that's some cool guitars there. I started playing guitar in the 60s so I've seen some of them. I remember a guy that had a kay guitar with see-thru pickups. Weird.

EDIT: Sorry about your dad and the stuff you got are vintage. Hang on to it.

Sorry to hear that your dad died man.

However, you've got some very nice equipment there. The foot pedals in particular are worth quite alot. So if you really get into playing guitar, you've got some nice vintage gear to carve your own sound.

I have so much respect for you for thinking of that.
And SirAbe, if you do that.

I'm really sorry to hear that.
I think the worst thing you could do is ever sell that.

When my grandfather passed, I kept alot of his old stuff, mostly old decorative stuff and I keep it all sitting out on shelves in my room

Now as for all the gear.
It's some really nice stuff to start with.

And I would love to have a guitar like that.
Nowadays, I think its really cool to have a unique guitar like that.

sorry about your dad

some of the old mxr pedals are worth money, aren't they?

also to my knowledge galanti was never branded as airline... they were a company, one of the guitar pictured is called a grand prix, thats the model name. Airline was the name of the guitars sold by Montgomery Wards, but they were not manufactured under that name. Valco made airlines, supros, and others. Galanti made their own guitars.

I am so sorry to hear about your fathers passing.

I don't think it's disgracefull to show his old possessions he has passed to you, you're just showing us because you don't know what they are.

Great stuff, have fun with it!

consololations for your dad dude, he had good tatse in guitars.
They look kick ass!

I was kidding at the other guy, not the OP, sorry |:

Save it like a collection item in the memory of your father. The sensation of possessing something of that value (monetary, at least) is better than the quick one you get from selling it and spending the money.

most MXR pedals are worth money, new or old. but the old ones are invariably more valuable.

well to clear everything up i live in australia and pop can mean anything from dad to great great great great grandpa. sorry bout the confusion it was my great grandpa and yea we we're close it was about 7 years ago thou so i thought it was about time i should see how good it is and apparently it is, i had no intention of selling anything i got from him and i'm pretty pissed off at you guys thinking that i don't care or something but i forgive you because i know you didn't understand. anyways there is another guitar that my aunty inherited and she wants to know about it to. because we know nothing about guitars that's y we r asking about them. can anyone tell me what the 4 black buttons do on the galanti either cause i have no idea.

This is my aunty's guitar it says wilson on it, don't know if that helps or anything.

Maybe taking his mind off his dad and staying immersed in the guitar world he's entered is a good way to stay happy and move on?

EDIT: Oh great grandpa? Same applies anyways

flickr you might
