MT4STR Eldegas guitar

Post by pip »

Hello, I am interested in finding out what the guitar is worth. I live in Toronto. Anyone have any ideas where I could sell it?

The MT- models are copies of Martin acoustics.

70's MT- models seem to usually sell on the internet for around $150-250, but list anywhere from $100-500 depending on the condition of the instrument, country of manufacture, and the level of motivation of the buyer. Your mileage may vary, this is just the trend I see.

If you have a photos of the headstock & sound hole label I might be able to tell you the country of manufacture (or the sound hole label may have it listed).

Best bet for selling it locally is your local online classifieds (Kijiji, Craigslist). You can also list it on this forum if you would like.

Letters after the standard model number generally refer to the finish (they seemed to start doing this with later models). If I saw a photo of the OP's guitar it would probably become very apparent what color the letters are meant to represent. Of course, their post is years old so there's little chance of that :mrgreen:
