I'm talking about at least $2000 here like the Fenders, Gibsons, Rickenbackers, Alembics, Martins, etc
State the make, model, price, where & when obtained.
Anyone got any rare vintage guitars?

Thanks, Adam. Yes, I have several. Most didn't cost a whole lot of money when I got them, but because I bought them so long ago over the years they have become considered vintage collectible guitars worth many times what I paid for them (some thirty or forty times what I paid originally). I've bought several fairly expensive ones too, the most expensive was around $7000, but even that one is now worth about $14,000 or so.

I have owned lots of guitars. At least one would fetch $5000 or so these days. And I have owned other guitars that would fetch not too much less than that. I sold them back in the day to fund things more useful to me at the time. And I am pretty happy with what I have right now.
I do at some point in my life want to invest in a Gibson Super 400. And I am developing amplifier lust for a Bad Cat Hot Cat. First I have to come up with some ways to make more money. I may write a few more books.

i've some fairly expensive amps- early jcm800 2204 and a laney 50 watt head.
my drummer has a martin he swears is really vintage and worth tons, also he has a guild that he says is made in like the 50's that he says is worth about 20,000 or more euro( i don't think he knows what he's talking about)

I've got a '39 Martin that I paid 50$ to buy from a man at my moms work. He inherited from his great grandfather and had no idea what it was. He didn't play guitar and just wanted someone that would cherish it to have it. I didn't even know that it was anywhere near as valuable as it was or I probably wouldn't have been able to accept it. I'm not sure what the going rate is on them right now...
