Very Disappointing! 11 April 2006
By spattantiques - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The first 3 out of 5 guitars I searched for were not listed. Missing certain models of Kay, Dean, Silvertone to mention a few. When I looked for a model of Martin, that model was missing also. I found all of the models in a different price guide. And yes, all of the missing models are vintage.

Vintrage guitar buyer's bible 6 Feb. 2007
By Dennis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As I begin to watch for vintage guitars popping up in the odd places in the hope of finding a bargain, this book is very helpful. Already it kept me from overpaying by several hunderd dollars for one guitar. Of course, most of the popular Gibson [35 pages] and Fender [26 pages] guitars get lots of coverage and, while not authorative on every manufacturer, model and year (how could one source have it all?) Greenwood's reference book has proven very valuable. All the photos are B/W, there is not a photo of every model of every manufacturer; but in fairness, I would not have spent what that book would have cost. All-in-all, excellent. Buy it while it's still current.

Get's better every year. 9 Jan. 2007
By Steve at Salmon River Guitars - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having been a guitar maker and repairman for 38 years I have come to rely on the "Price Guide" since it's inception.

When used with "Gruhn's Guide to Vintage Guitars" I can pinpoint the date the guitar was made, identify make and model fairly accurately and get a good idea of value.

This has been a great help in evaluating the over 200 guitars I've collected in the past several years.

Each year the "Price Guide" is expanded to include additional makes and models of guitars and this newest volume is no exception.

Don't Rely on This Guide for Pricing 1 Feb. 2007
By Robert P. Gerety, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an interesting guide to browse but I would not rely on this guide for pricing. My experience is that the suggested prices are often as much as 50% off the actual fair market prices.

One of many useful tools 11 Mar. 2007
By Caffeine-deprived in Dallas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One can rarely perform any complex and important task, be it manual or cerebral, with a single tool. Research on any subject is a prime example; a single reference source is never adequate. This guide, while not as complete or exhaustive as some might like, is simply one of many reference tools, and an extremely useful one. Were the guitar market static, it might make sense to put together a voluminous compilation aspiring to be all-inclusive and unerringly accurate. But the guitar market is anything but static and this guide simply provides the best "snapshot" that it can at this particular time.

I must disagree with those other reviewers who say the prices in this guide are so vastly off the mark, and that ebay represents the new paradigm in pricing information. My own experience during the last few years has been repeated instances of wishful sellers justifying their asking prices by pointing to the "Buy It Now" prices of the burgeoning numbers of "Power Sellers" and "ebay Store" entities. Those prices obviously have no significance in defining the current market, because the vast majority of the listings expire without generating a single bid. Even more interesting are the numerous cases in which sellers have said that their guitars sold, at or above the asking prices, and then a month or two later the same sellers have the same guitars listed again. Were it to happen often enough, such fraudulent generation of apparent sales could help drive the market upward, just as those sellers are obviously hoping.

While ebay sales represent valuable pricing data, the authors of this guide have certainly tried to exclude sales to apparently collusive buyers, and probably weighted their analysis in favor of those sales that generated numerous bids.
