Are Madeira guitars good?
“The Madeira is a fine instrument that will last a lifetime if taken care of. Very close to the USA Guilds… NOTHING sold in today’s market for under $1000 will compare with a 70s-80s Madeira, Epiphone, Yamaha, Hondo, Alvarez, or Suzuki. My 35 years of guitar experience knows this to be true.” -Posted by Bill.
How do I find the value of my guitar?
Look for a serial number. On an electric guitar, you’ll typically find the serial number on the back of the guitar body or headstock. The serial number of an acoustic guitar may be on the back or on the label in the sound hole. The guitar’s serial number also may give you a clue to its value.
Who makes Madeira guitars?
Madeira Guitars used to be Guild’s import brand. They were first made in Japan with USA parts then were made in Korea with USA parts by Samick (which also still makes Sigma for Martin, Epiphone for Gibson, and Squire for Fender but not with USA parts anymore).
Do old guitars appreciate in value?

Are guitars worth collecting?
Guitars are a good investment if you understand the market for them. They can be more predictable than stocks, there is a great variety of valuable guitars that hold their value, and they are physical assets. As an added bonus, they are assets you can play or display.
At what age is a guitar considered vintage?
What is a vintage guitar? While an antique is defined as an object over 100 years old, there’s no strict chronological definition of what makes something vintage. Typically, though, guitars around 30 years old or older fall into that category, and even newer instruments will often be labeled as such by sellers.
Why are older guitars more valuable?
One reason as to why vintage gear, specifically guitars, are more expensive and sought-after, is because of the materials they are made out of. Certain wood builds can allow a guitar to have better sustain, and also make the guitars more consistent in sound, since all the wood was almost identical.
Which guitars hold their value best?
Gibson. Gibson guitars are hands down the best guitars in terms of resale value. Everyone and their mother know the brand, so it’s the first thing people think of when they’re in the market for a guitar. Gibson guitars have several iconic guitar models such as the Gibson Les Paul and the Gibson SG.
Are Taylor guitars a good investment?
4. They’re totally worth the extra investment. Although there are a few budget friendly options within the Taylor guitar range, we would definitely put Taylor in the “higher tier” bracket of guitars.
