    Limited and questionable information

    I don't know how many guitars and amps are listed in this book but I couldn't find information on most guitars I own. For example, Ibanez Roadstar II series, or Aria Pro II RS series. Let alone some less known guitars like Ventura (not even mentioned) or Vantage (just a few examples, and of course not the ones I have). Even those that are listed appear to have inaccurate information. For example, acoustic Aria AD-28 is listed to be MSR $350 (real list price is $550) with street price of $250 but the cheapest you can get it $450. But there is a much more information on Fenders and Gibson (information everyone can get on internet for free).

    Very helpful book for aiding in buying and selling collector's guitars.

    I own a music store in upper Minnesota and like to shop around for classic guitars. The bluebook has been very helpful in aiding me to purchase what I want, and need to sell quality instruments.

    Great book for starters!

    If you are interested in learning how to buy, sell, or play guitars, than this book is perfect for you. I learned how to judge prices and conditions for myself, and how to tell when a seller is taking advantage of me. Plus, the commentary at the beginning of the book is extremely funny! Thank you so much!
