I am new to the world of vintage guitars, but this seems a fairly comprehensive and in depth study of the main makes (and some lesser known ones too!)
I found that the dollar price seems to convert directly to a pound price (?), so I would agree with those who say this is more of a dealer guide (for their buy price). If you can work with this and make your own decisions/comparisons, it is a superb book for the money. I will buy the 2012 ed.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Disappointing 18 Mar. 2011
By Roger C. Penwick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think the pricing information presented is relatively accurate and realistic FOR THE INSTRUMENTS THAT ARE INCLUDED. If anything, the error is on the conservative side - i.e. many instruments SEEM to be priced lower than actual current going prices. Good if you are buying - not so good if you are selling.

I have 4 complaints with the book:
1)The ONLY pricing information presented is for instruments in excellent condition. The authors provide a sentence or two as guidelines for valuing guitars in less than exc. condition - but these are vague;

2) There are a number of inaccuracies regarding years of manufacture, model numbers etc. One example: I own a Hofner Senator which I have dated to 1954/55. However the guide appears to think this model was first produced in 1958. vintagehofneruk.com clearly shows this to be incorrect;

3) I guess they define "vintage" differently than I do. While omitting many true vintage (pre-1980??) guitars they waste space with Indonesian garbage like the "Hamer" Slammer - "made from 1998 until the present". How on earth is that VINTAGE??

4) Most significantly is the VAST omission of instruments that clearly should be there - at least in my opinion. I own 11 vintage guitars. Five of these are not mentioned in the Guide at all. I have tried to price other instruments I was interested in purchasing and in the majority of instances I could find no information in this book. And I don't think I'm picking off the wall weird instruments. Some of these have been Kay, Harmony, Norman, Regal, Voisonet, etc. all of which should have made it into the guide in favor of Slammer.

If you are looking for encyclopedic coverage of priding for vintage guitars you won't find it here. I won't buy this same guide again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have Value Guide 20 Nov. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Vintage Guitar Price Guide is a must have for all collectors of guitars and guitar gear. I use it to track the value of my guitar collection, and as a guide to gear that is only available to small markets, such as mine, via the internet. Has led me to amps and pedals that have enhanced my sound tremendously. Kudos to Vintage Guitar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable Resource 25 Feb. 2011
By Gerald G. Mcgeorge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The VG Price Guide is the best compilation of information available for vintage guitars, amps, mandolins & banjos. Virtually every significant manufacturer's products are listed. While some information is sketchy, helps immeasurably when pricing items for sale or purchase. Add one to your reference library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Guitar I could Think Of 21 Jun. 2011
By gpb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book to check on all those guitars you have in the man cave. I have a buddy who has an old 50's bass he bought brand new. Its his favorite, so of course he was playing it at all his gigs. One night he notice a couple guys that kept looking, watching and even staring at times. After the set, they approached him asking questions about the guitar. They were very informed and finally one ask "why are you playing that here, its worth a fortune." Well we got "the book" out and looked it up. WOW! Yep a small fortune is right. $12,000$-15,000. It now sits at home as the practice bass. My friend mentioned how often it laid around on stage during breaks, or back stage. It easily could have grown legs. Buy this extremely informative book and check your guitars, amps, and more. You might get a "shock" too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Several errors and omissions in bass guitars 14 Sept. 2011
By Gayle Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bass guitars have a much smaller section. Late 80's Japanese made Fender basses aren't even listed. Are you kiddin me? Carvin, one of Americas oldest and best manufacturers has a 3 sentence entry with no prices at all. Unbelievable! Peavey Dynabass Unity Series is misidentified as Dynabass Limited. No such animal exists. Token representation for basses. If it ain't mainstream don't expect to find it in this guide. Very disappointing.
