To help make sense of the guitar market, we’ve put together 5 indices alongside guitar experts and financial experience. These indices are similar to stock market indices like the S&P 500 or FTSE100.

To collate the indexes we use values for the top collectable guitars from each manufacturer (using mint condition values).

Each index has a yearly average of the guitars that make up the index, indexed back to 2002 = 100. Our VGP50 index is a collection of the top 50 guitars that make up the Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, and Martin indices.
