Huge Rare Guitar Collection Up for Auction

Posted 08 Mar 2014 in Gear News

Private guitar collections can be a very, very competitive world, but it can also be quite exciting, especially when rare, limited edition items are put up for sale. Just earlier this week, a staggering 265 piece collection was put up for sale at the  April 1 and 2 Guernsey’s auctions.

Rare Guitar Auction

For the most part, the guitars (and a few mandolins) are all older instruments that represent specific periods of the history of the instrument. In addition, a few celebrity guitars will be up for sale, including an old Clapton, one from Mick Jagger’s history, and even an SJ-200 that was once owned by Stephen Stills of Crosby, Stills, and Nash.


The guitars range in date from an 1840’s piece to a modern day recreation of the classic Marting OM-45. By the way, the original 1930 OM-45 Deluxe will be available for sale as well. This should be very exciting for guitar collectors, as the OM-45 is widely considered to be one of the most valuable and rare guitars of all time. Only 14 were ever produced, making this one of the most exciting auctions in recent memory. The entire collection was offered up by one unnamed individual.
