Appraisals

Gryphon does quite a few more appraisals these days than we used to, and for good reason. Determining the accurate replacement cost for an instrument can be difficult, and many insurance companies require a formal appraisal in order to establish today’s market value. Some instruments have greatly increased in value, while others have actually decreased. Fortunately, a Gryphon appraisal has never been easier, or as comprehensive.

If you’ve checked our website listings for used and vintage instruments lately, you may have noticed the numerous photos we’ve posted. Now you too can have a visual record of your instrument with your Gryphon appraisal. Appraisals are $100 with pictures and $50 without. As with repairs, we offer a 25% discount if the instrument was purchased at Gryphon. Getting Richard to wear his Antiques Roadshow approved coat and tie rather than a t-shirt, however, requires an additional five bucks! Seriously though, appointments for all appraisals are highly recommended.
