Industry experts have long considered The Official Vintage Guitar Price Guide to be the most accurate, authoritative and detailed publication to tackle the seemingly indomitable task of placing values on thousands of vintage and recent-model guitars, amps, basses, effects pedals, mandolins, lapsteels and other fretted instruments. Now in its 12th edition, the new Guide offers more than ever. Authors Alan Greenwood and Gil Hembree have made their ultimate guide to values even more valuable, with more details on familiar favorites and background on nearly 130 brands never before included in any price guide. Plus, we've added 45 more pages and 100 more photos (nearly 700 in all!) showing all forms of vintage instruments, amps and effects. The Guide combines the most thorough research with an exceptionally user-friendly format that employs quick-find page headings, a comprehensive index, and a dealer directory that puts you just an e-mail or phone call away from guitar sellers in every region of the country. Also included is an in-depth look at the factors that drive the collectible instrument market, explaining the "hows and whys" in regard to the values of vintage and used equipment.
