What's a better "investment" collectible gun or guitar?


I enjoy both. I haven't researched at all yet. Looking for my c-mas/ end of year mad money gift. Ill use, enjoy, and hold on to either. Which generally holds value/ appreciates more?

High end English side by sides or over under shoguns hold their value very well. Slightly used. No idea on guitars...

I don't think there's margin in either one, unless you have bro deal on either. It's like classic cars. It just depends on what's popular when you go to sell it. If you pay high dollar for a rare SG (Gibson) it matters both the market when you bought it and the market when you sell it. If you have a great feel for what isn't popular now but may be in the future then you're in business.

I'm not sure what holds it's value better, but my goal in life is to own a 1957 les paul gold top.

My son has a late 70's Les Paul. He loves that guitar.

if you play, you'll be able to enjoy a vintage guitar a lot more.

I just recently lost about 15 great shotguns and an old strat in a house fire.

So there is a risk of total lost. Add in the cost of insurance to your expected appreciation. Might make it a long term neutral investment.

Buy a CD

You can get insurance for your guns through Eastern Insurance.

They specialize in firearms, offer worldwide all risk protection. The minimum yearly premium is $125 and covers up to $35k in firearms. In addition no appraisals are needed on the guns unless a gun is valued over $10k. Because I live in a flood zone flood coverage is excluded from the policy.

Yep, I don't want guns or jewelry on a homeowner's policy. Things tend to happen to these items and I don't want to have a claim on my homeowners's only to have my rates jacked up on my house...
