What's YOUR guitar worth?

My best guitar is a Danny Gatton model Telecaster.
Danny signed the neck pocket at the factory.
No idea if that affects value.
I bought it mint but used for much less than these listings:

Over 6 million dollars for Kurt Cobain's beat up acoustic?????
Now I know someone's having a laugh.
Kurt Cobain was/is vastly over rated in my opinion. 😂😂
My own guitars are worth more to me than they are to anyone else, I would imagine.

It's interesting as I really don't visualize/relate to my instruments by their monetary worth. I view them like old friends that support and provide me with something quite rewarding. Maybe that's a bit of anthropomorphism at play. However my '63 Gibson Hummingbird and '69 Jazz Bass are probably my two most valuable. My least is probably my Welch Twang Slinger T Style that I modified to my liking.

I have a Gibson Les Paul Standard made in march 2000. Natural wood finish. It's nice. I got it for 1150 plus an SSD drive and some work I did on the guys Mac. SSD cost me 100 bucks.

If I had charged him for the work it would have been about another 200 bucks.

I got it the beginning of lockdown in March 2020. The guy reckoned he could get 2 grand for it if he was patient

Who knows maybe he was right. Academic anyway. It's on my keep list.

I would think it's my most valuable axe

Took the words right out of my mouth.
I may hold some sentimental value in certain things but I see it all as just stuff. Stuff can be replaced and in the end is pretty meaningless but there are three guitars that, if they were destroyed or stolen, I would be really busted up over. One was the cheapest strat sold at its time, another has been carved up and ruined so badly its a miracle it still holds together and the third is the guitar that I wrote and recorded the song my wife met me at the alter to.
I've been offered more than I paid for the third one and turned it down without hesitation. It stays till the end then will be bequeathed to my niece along with the strat.

My '79 Les Paul Deluxe. It's not exactly the top of the line model. I see them going for close to $5000 CAD on Reverb. People have asked me if I was interested in selling it and I've told them that the amount of money I would accept for it would not be worth it to the buyer. It belonged to my dad and it's the first guitar I ever played. It's the same age as me and some day I will pass it to my son. It's priceless to me. IMG_20220129_091852.jpg
