Barn find


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!!   My father in law recently passed away …. I was going  through his barn and discovered a 1948 Gibson ES. 125.    It is in EXCELLENT condition and since I know nothing about vintage guitars..  was wondering if anyone can give me a ballpark of its value

Pretty cool.  Can we look?

Go to Reverb.  There are several there.  You can get an estimated baseline.   Excellent condition?  You're probably in the 3K range and up.

Thank you for all your help.   The funny part is that my father-in-law did not play any instruments and he never bought anything to collect so I’m guessing you pick this up at a garage sale somewhere… Pretty crazy

He had the wisdom, I guess, to note the Gibson name and not let value slip through his hands.  Like a person who doesn't know watches or jewelry stops and thinks twice when they see the brand Rolex or Tiffany.
