Pete Jennings Help with valuation of guitars (14) RE: Help with valuation of guitars 06 Jan 14

The two Martin acoustics can be dated from their serial numbers (see here). (Click on "here" for a link to the site).

The 000-18 is correctly listed as 2008, while the HD-28 is from 2005.

Coda Music, in Stevenage, Herts (UK), has competetive prices for new Martins: an "ordinary" 000-18 at 1,749 and an HD-28 at 2,149. I would expect less (250 or so?) for second-hand in good condition.

It's worth contacting a reputable guitar shop to get an opinion on some of these guitars. If you're in the UK, try Ivor Mairants in London.
