Their former owners were internationally renowned musical names, brands unto themselves.

Hello

You will need to take these to a Certified Appraiser in person so they can inspect the instruments, and documentation in order to grade the instruments in order to give you an appraisal. I can try to find a Musical Instrument Appraiser for you if you like?
