Is this book reliable?
You mean the Vintage Guitar Guide formerly known as Prince?
Anyway it is what it is, which is a survey of what successful people in the business "say" they ask for an item. I liked it better when it was a just vintage gear, now it tries to be a an all-encompassing blue book.
My guess is the prices are no longer accurate after the financial debacle of last few weeks.
Thanks. I ask because I'm often intrigued by some guitar or amp that shows up on ebay, and I have no idea what the market value of it is, so I don't know how to bid. I don't want to pay more than its worth for obvious reasons, but mainly because since I can't try before I buy, I wanted to be able to flip it for little of no loss if it isn't for me.
The only important thing is what it's worth to you.
When does the new Blue Book for guitars come out?
Yes, except if I need to sell it or don't want it anymore, I can sell it at no loss if I paid market price. If I paid more, than I will likely sell at a loss.
