“My heart beats a little faster when the new VG Price Guide
is released each year. It’s the guitar equivalent of the swimsuit issue – I have to get this book! I love it because it keeps me up-to-date on values and gives helpful details on the models I’m most interested in buying.” – John 5
“The VG Price Guide
is the only book I will even look at. There is nothing even close on the market. It’s an invaluable tool for dealers, collectors, players, or anyone who wants incredible knowledge about guitars, amps, etc. Values, years made, colors offered – The Guide
has it all and is truly a one-of-a-kind publication. It’s such a great tool!” – Brian Goff, Bizarre Guitars
“I use The VG Price Guide
every day, whether in the store, at a guitar show, or browsing at home. Having an informed place to start a transaction provides a level playing field when buying, selling, or trading gear. Vintage-instrument transactions can be very emotional, so it’s helpful to have accurate, readily available information to give customers the confidence to make good decisions.” – Artie Leider, McKenzie River Music

began collecting guitars in 1966 while working at Kitt’s Music, in Washington, D.C. Familiarity with the professional musicians playing on Georgetown’s M-Street allowed him to dabble in early buy-sell, but his academic interest in finance led to a corporate job in Michigan. Throughout his financial career he played in bands and searched for original-owner vintage guitars in Flint, Saginaw, Bay City, Port Huron, Pontiac, Battle Creek, and Kalamazoo. In 2000, freshly retired from corporate finance, he became the co-author of The Official Vintage Guitar Price Guide
