Dang, guess they were a big Megadeth fan.  There definitely was a good chance there to pick up some used gear that isn't that easy to find anymore.

For me, no. I don't want a guitar/trombone/etc in my coffin. I want those instruments out there, continuing to make music, or at the least trapped inside a case at one of my fellow GAS afflicted brethren's homes.

This. ^^^

When I was younger, I used to always say I wanted to be buried with a guitar (specifically, my '75 SG). Probably because I thought it sounded cool and showed how dedicated I was to the instrument.

But as I got older - and especially after I became a parent -  I realized that really wasn't that great of an idea. So no, I don't want any guitars in the box with me. They'll belong to my kids when I'm gone, and they can play them, keep them, hang them on the wall or sell them to cover my funeral costs. I'd just like to think that, like @tbonesullivan said, my guitars will continue to make music long after I'm not around to play them any more.

The studio and guitars are twenty miles from my home.

I want to go either diffusing a bomb or in the saddle, but preferably at the same time.

Unless we are talking Babe Ruth, most of these celebrity owned collectibles will decrease in value over time.  Dean Martin was loved by millions, but are there people clamoring for his stuff today, or has that ship sailed?  I am under no illusion my Steve Stevens collection will be worth more in twenty years than it is right now.   Who would be the buyers?  The once interest parties would be downsizing or going into a nursing home then.

Were there ever interested parties in a non-wig Steve Stevens collection?

Apparently, as people email me with inquires to buy guitars often.

There was a guitar dealer in the 90's selling Connee Boswell's archtop.  To me that would have been a cool item to own, but aside from people who listen to 1930s big band music few people would attach any value to the guitar's original owner.

I've got an Alto Trombone hand-picked at the factory by the former Principal Trombone of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Byron Peebles.

https://www.laphil.com/press/releases/1610

Cost me just a bit more than the usual used price for a horn in that condition and vintage. I was MUCH more enthusiastic about the fact that he had hand picked it out, and it's a good one.  Sure it's nice that someone famous and known used it, but it's something I USE, not something I worship.

Get back to us when you procure a rusty trombone from someone famous.

I was actually in the store a few seconds after it opened and could have bought one.  I thought the prices were reasonable but realized I don't really follow Megadeth.  I would have rather bought another Hamer.  

Knowing this guy literally bought all, I would have snagged one but didn't really care that much.  I don't think they will rise in value, just like my dire predictions of most guitars once everyone currently in their 50s hit the nursing homes and unload their gear.

Dave's an insufferable bore as far as personality goes. I want Metallica to hire him back in the band just so they can toss him out again just to see him cry....
