Add guitar salesman to the current roles juggled by Country Music Hall of Famer and the Eagles’ new kid in town Vince Gill. He’s selling part of his personal collection through Gruhn Guitars, a vintage music shop in Nashville owned by renowned stringed instrument expert George Gruhn.
Per a statement on the Gruhn Guitars website: “Vince has been a Nashville icon for many years and is one of the most highly regarded musicians in a city rich with musical talent. His career has spanned over four decades and has earned over 20 Grammy Awards and countless other accolades. It is an honor to represent these instruments for Vince and guide them to new homes.”

Of the 31 guitars and banjos listed, eight remain for sale. The unsold lot ranges in price from a couple of $3,000 guitars to a $20,000 1957 Gibson Byrdland Gill played live with the Time Jumpers. For high-dollar collectors, they’re a neat piece of country music history that not even Marty Stuart owns (yet). Other available items come from different phases of Gill’s lengthy and ongoing career, including a couple of guitars he played onstage with the Pure Prairie League.
Items from the Gill collection come with a certificate of authenticity signed by Gill and Gruhn as well as a photograph showing Gill with the instrument.
