Nice guitars there, MOB. The first looks like a ~'1969 Gibson ES-330. The second is a 1965 Fender Electric XII in Lake Placid Blue (custom color) with matching headstock.

Coo thanks for your bit of knowledge :) what would you value them at? Im trying to sell, are they guitars many people would be intrested in purchasing or do I just have a pile of scrap wood? [confused]

Mob, they are valuable guitars. Their value= the highest offer. You can get them appraised for insurance purposes but they appraisal number wouldn't be close to what someone would actually pay you for them (most likely).

Hey Mob, nice guitars. I really like the Gibson ES-330. I'd love to try it out. Are you located anywhere near Northeastern N. Carolina?

Very nice acquisitions. I agree with tvguit's observations. Just as a ballpark estimate, I would say that the Gibson might sell in the range of $2250 to $2500 on a good day (assuming it's in excellent condition). With regard to the Fender, that's a relatively rare bird, I think. The market value might be harder to pin down on something like that- especially since it's a custom color example, but my guess is that we're possibly talking about $4000 or more. I would not be in any hurry to sell it. Do as much research online as you can first.
