    I hope my kid would want to keep a few bits.

    There are too many vultures who prey on the survivors - may they rot in hell. It's a very good idea to have pricing and trusted friends to assist the [maybe] grieving widow in selling off the unwanted bits. I'm on speed dial for four of my friends for this very purpose.

    ok it seems just recently a member of ibanez collector's world has passed away (rip) and the man had stated that he prefer that members of the forum get first crack at his guitars ,he had like 24 or 26 but something like 17 have been found ,he might have given some away to people who could not afford a guitar . i think all of these or at least most of these are ibanez ,including 3 ibanez destroyers ,and one with a very interesting pedigree ,once belonging to randy rhoads (rip) check out the photos below ,if u would like to throw ur hat into the ring i can set u up ,as for me i'm sitting this one out ,i'm set with my gear and i'm paying off my debts ,enjoy .

    This was my uncle's. Given to me by my aunt last year though he passed about ten years ago. 1941 D-18. Needed a neck reset, frets and some other minor things.
    Have not made plans for my stuff yet.

    Same as others here, everything goes to my daughter and she is well aware of what is valuable and what isn't. Your heirs should be known and informed.

    The Randy connection is cool but I suspect without some kind of well documented proof of ownership it adds little if any value.
    The D18 is a Martin; when I had the repairs done it was appraised at 15-20k despite the wear and repairs. My aunt is not well off so her passing it on was really great.

    Reads like a bad joke.

    Do you know that, according to sociologists, you are literally 6 degrees of separation (person-who-knows-person steps) away from ANYONE on the planet?

    And chances are your 6th degree is somebody like the recluse Dictator Kim's bodyguard's elderly mother, because your 5th degree is Dictator Kim's bodyguard, and your 4th degree is Dictator Kim himself.

    ...because yes, living in America, Dictator Kim IS indeed in your 2nd - 4th degree, because you certainly know somebody who knows somebody who met Dennis Rodman and/or President Trump



    Why am I saying this? Because these wacky chain of people references make it sound like some sort of solid "connection", but really, it's no more solid than your own personal connection to Dictator Kim's bodyguard's elderly momma ---- less so, actually

    what do u think a private investigator could do? could he ask rick derringer if it is true?
    and could then one of those certificate of athenticity companies make up a cert for the guitar ? and then how much would it sell for at a prestigious auction house like christies or sotheby's? think of it! an ibanez destroyer once owned by randy rhoads with a coa ?

    I'm only 29 and engaged, so no kids or anything yet, but I want my American Std. Strat to be passed down. That guitar is my prized possession. I'll more than likely value the others before I ride the soul train. Don't know if I'm going north or south yet. :D
