Solid body electric guitar signed by the 5 members of the band “allman brothers” purchased at auction at WZLX radio station charity auction.
New electric guitar, never pre owned, only been played a few times by myself and I am a musician so it was handled with great care.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs, this is a signed Epiphone Les Paul Junior electric guitar bearing the signatures of Allman Brothers Band members Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Marc Quinones, Butch Trucks and Jai Johanny Johanson.
The condition of the piece is excellent, with no damage noted. The guitar itself was built in May 2012. The autograph styles appear to match known copies of signatures of the band members named, but definitive authentication by a reputable third-party such as PSA would be advisable.
In determining the value of this piece, the following factors were taken into account. This model of guitar is not a professional-grade instrument and is a budget-model guitar. The piece was likely signed after Gregg Allman's final appearances, as his signature would increase the value. Also, there is no indication that the guitar was played or otherwise used by the signers.
Based on auction sales of similar items, Fair Market Value of this guitar in an auction setting (a pre-auction estimate) would be $300 to $400 USD.
