Good Afternoon


The Bronson Guitar, Streamliner, is selling in todays market for between 450.00 and 500.00, depending on the condition and the location it is for sale at. If you are thinking of selling, I would check with your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for. This will give you an idea of what it goes for in your area, then you can decide to sell locally or at one of the online markets. I am enclosing a little history for you on the guitar. I thought you might like it.


If I can be of any further help, please feel free contacting me.

George Bronson was a guitar teacher in downtown Detroit, MI from the 1930s through 1950s. George ran the "Bronson Music & Sales Company" where he sold and distributed sheet music, amps and guitars. He specialized in steel guitars and many of the Bronsons are square neck guitars made by the National/Valco company. There was also a popular model electric lap steel that National/Valco made for Bronson, which was sold under the name "Bronson Singing Electric" (source: Walter Murray).
