Reunion Blues Vintage Guitars Road Show - Part 3

December 19, 2008

In the third segment of Reunion Blues' Vintage Guitars Road Show, the show hits up Bananas at Large in California. Highlights include:

  • A very rough '69 Jazz Bass with so many modifications - including removal of the binding, and the owner's name and SSN etched into the hardware - the appraisers get a little upset. Still, the bass' value will surprise you.
  • The single prototype of Fender's Gold Custom Shop Strat. There was a limited run of 100, which was commissioned for NAMM's 100th anniversary in 2001.
  • Near-perfect 1961 SG-style Les Paul Jr.

Reunion Blues has started a series of Vintage Guitar Road Shows, and invited Premier Guitar to join in and be a sponsor. The first one held at Bananas at Large in San Rafael, CA, saw some very nice collectible guitars. The owner of an '57 Gibson L5C brought in his guitar to be appraised and found it was worth approximately $8000. However, it would have been worth more if it hadn't been modified. More shows are planned across the US so stay tuned for dealer locations and more videos.
