Did You know you can buy Musical Instrument Insurance Coverage Online?
And you can do this from anywhere world wide.
In this world are many great collectors guitars,Amps,violins,cello's,Harps,everything from classical music to rock guitars may need to be insured.
What I am talking about, is a highly appraised instrument such as an older collectors model, or it can be a new musical instrument but worth thousands of dollars.
If they become lost, stolen or damaged you want to be sure that you're instrument is protected.
There are many great Insurance companies online or on the internet, that can give you a best quote,or a, online insurance quote.
Also you need a company whom you can trust with premiums and claims, and claims that can be paid out in your own local currency.
The best cash settlement is what you're looking for and you really need a top company who is going pan out the money and look out for your needs.
There's no use paying for insurance if you're going to get burned by that company in the future.
Their are many great companies online who have clients from all over the world and they specialize in insurance quotes and coverage for musical instruments of all kinds.
Companies like MusicGuard,Farmers Insurance Online,Lark,Anderson Group for Acoustic Guitar Insurance Program, their company who carries their insurance is called OneBeacon Insurance Group.
I found that a $125.00 premium can cover as much as $19,000 of coverage on guitars and other instruments.
My main instrument, that I love to play is a Taylor guitar so I will show you an example of guitar prices and why you should insure a great guitar.
Below is a list of Eric Claptons guitar's that he sold on auction not long ago.
1.)Fender Stratocaster ,"Blackie" Value as sold on auction $959,500.00 to the Guitar Center.
2.)1956 Fender Stratocaster, "Brownie" $497,500.00.
3.)1964 Gibson ES-335 $847,500.00
4.)1939 Martin 000-42 Acoustic Guitar close to $800,000.00
5.)1960 Gibson Less Paul Standard $200,000.00
I once tried to buy the Elvis Black Gibson guitar,which was 1 of a kind made for Elvis by Gibson, but the price on ebay went over $60,000.00 and I was priced out.
But it shows you what a great guitar own by a famous singer can go for.
Also I should say a little about brand new guitars also, with a few of the top brands of Martin,Ovation,Taylor,Breedlove acoustic guitars and top electric guitars, like Gibson,Fender who are making reissued guiitars of the old versions starting between $1,600.00 to 30,000.00 you may want to do a rethink about how much that guitar is really worth. If you're like some of my friends who own 4 or 5 guitars and each costing $2500,00 to 5000.00 then you might want to think about protecting those guitars, you have a small goldmine invested there.
Hope this article has informed you.
