Can any direct me in the way of trying to figure out what the value of Martins and Kamakas are. To make it simple, I was thinking about the following catergories for each brand:

2 sizes: Sopranos and Concerts
Condition: Excellent, Average, Needs Works
Decade Built:
Approximate Value:

If there is a thread or website, I would love to look at it as I want to buy an older instrument as if there are no issues, the wood should have aged and sound great. Thanks
