MAYBE SELLING A COUPLE ACOUSTIC GUITARS

#1

Post by ANGRY GARY » Tue Jun 11, 2019 2:30 pm

I HAVE A FRIEND WHO IS SELLING SOME GUITARS....MAYBE... AND I AM LOOKING FOR ANY HELP IN WHAT TO LOOK FOR ETC.
THE FIRST IS I THINK A 1972 C.F. MARTIN. I WILL GET PICS IN A COUPLE DAYS. IT LOOKS TO BE IN VERY NICE SHAPE. BUT WHAT DO I KNOW.
THE SECOND IS A GIBSON HUMMINGBIRD. I KNOW NOTHING ELSE.
THERE IS A THIRD BUT THE ONLY THING I CAN REMEMBER IS SOMEONE SAW THE PICS I HAD AND I THINK THEY CALLED IT A SQUAREHEAD.
I WILL HAVE PICS LATER IN THE WEEK.

GARY


HOW ABOUT THOSE DETAILS BEING AS VAGUE AS POSSIBLE!!


I have had the great privilege of dumping with 67 current and former Rusty Bunch members, to date.Got to hit the woods of Missouri with John, Kevin and Rick Kottomann the week of the Lake of the Ozark show!

Both are quality and should be worth some money if they have been cared for and stored properly. Esp. if the Martin is a dreadnaught (D18/28/35/45 etc). Wonder if the third is a squareneck slide guitar, maybe a Dobro or Regal?

Shipping acoustic guitars is not fun. Hopefully they have hardshell cases. They need to be detuned, to take the string strain off, then packed very well, hopefully doubleboxed. Expect the carton to be treated rough.

I know nothing about guitars. When shipping them, what is the advantage of loosening the strings to take the strain off?
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

The string tension adds to the stress on the body/neck joint etc as the carton gets slammed around in shipping. Especially if not in a good fitting hardshell case.
