    Maybe - just maybe - he let you play them so you wouldn't marry in...

    It's a good question. As I've gotten older I've become more aware of what I need in life, and what's important. Guitar-wise, I don't want my family to have to sell stuff on ebay when I'm gone. Separately, it should be interesting in the next decade or so as the current generation of collectors moves on and collections change hands.

    I have 50 or so guitars at any given time. I love buying guitars, but tend to become bored with them after certain time. That being said there are a few exceptions, I cannot imagine selling any of my PRS, Gibson or Fenders. My son will get the vast majority of my gear, he plays and appreciates the quality and value of these masterpieces. There are two guitars in my collection that I play nearly everyday and they would go in the coffin with me like Eddies black and yellow went with brother Dime. My Tremonti custom color signature and my Custom 24 quilted 10 top.
    2014Private Stock Modern Eagle Brazzy,'06 Tremonti Tribal #75,'13 SC245 Artist,'15 CU24 Artist,'12 Custom 22 Artist,'15 Waring Sig 10Top, '12 Tremonti one-off,2007/13 McCarty Korina,'13 408 10Top, '11 Custom24 10Top,'12 DGT w/BK Miracle Man pups,'07/13 Navarro w/BK Cold Sweat pups,'13 Tremonti SE with \m/ pups and lots of upgrades ,EVH 5150 combo, Randall Half Stack, Hughs & Kettner TubeMeister, other fiddles beyond counting

    First, someone must pry them out of my cold, dead hands. Then, my long-time friend will sell them and give the proceeds to my wife. He will get to keep one for his troubles. We call this the "death guitar". For some strange reason is always happy when i bring home new PRSi...:

    Cool topic. Can't say I have plans for them. I will have to figure something out. No plans to have kids so I guess they would go to fund my niece and nephews or a charity.

    A human skeleton sells for 3-10K on ebay, depending on condition. I think it makes more sense to sell my remains, and have the family keep the guitars!

    I wish I had a close friend with guitars to do the reciprical sell off with a guitar as payment, great idea and it assures the seller knows the value of them.

    I dont understand the whole bury me with one thing though....if it is that special of an instrument I would want it to live on as a musical instrument and bring pleasure to someone, not rot in a box with me.

    I agree...seems like a waste of a fine guitar. To me is seems it would be better to have somebody play it and remember you? They say you die twice, once actually and once when the last person who remembers you goes... Handing off a guitar to play and share your story seems like a good thing to do.

    You could always get cremated and have a portion of your ashes encased in a small resin puck that is stuck in the control cavity. That way a portion of your dark soul continues on with the new owner unaware of your master plan from beyond the grave. Or you could just settle for the skin cells that are all already there hiding in the crevasses.

    Great minds think alike. See post #14.

    I do own a fair number of guitars that my wife would have no idea what they are worth and thankfully she willnever know until I'm gone . After Chris T passing, I made a inventory list with approximate values and provided contact information on a couple dealers that I know would help in moving them for her.

    Hmm, time to start cross referencing "The Name Thread" and this one.

    With all due respect, if Jamie dies before me, I'm calling his wife to get some of his $800 guitars at a used price!

    ...
    All of my guitars are itemized and go to my daughter, according to my will. She knows what I've paid for them and how to contact forums and other 'net resources to check resale prices.
    I love 24 frets: [update 3] 3 X CU24s, 1 X West Street, 1 X Carvin DC127, 1 X Schecter Omen 6
    But, I have other stuff too.
