The sale promises the best in classical and modern instruments, including vintage guitars by Gibson and Martin, exceptional solid body guitars, fine Italian violins, and fine French bows.

Highlights in the sale include a Gibson Kalamazoo American electric guitar from 1959, Model ES-175. The instrument is estimated at $6,000-9,000.

Also appearing in the auction is a C.F. Martin & Company Nazareth model acoustic guitar from 1946, estimated at $6,000-8,000.

Prior to the sale, a Music Reception & Extended Preview is scheduled for the Friday evening, April 23. It will feature live jazz from the J-Way String Quartet.

The sale and exhibition are a must-see for collectors and investors alike. At past sales, old guitars have proven to be among the very best collectible purchases in terms of value appreciation.
