Gibson Case

Vintage Gibson Acoustic Guitar Strings?

I found these old Gibson strings in my dads old Gibson case. I looked at Gibson's website and they didn't have them, I did research, but nothing. They are Gibson USA .011 gauge Phosphor Bronze Wound, Ultra Light Gauge, Acoustic Guitar Strings. The name is G-230UL. On the inside they are all divided by paper keeping them unscratched which I have never seen before. It has a REALLY old looking price tag from some place called Clark Music, it is so old to tell the price by the naked eye but with a magnifying glass it looks like $6.27. I'm hoping they're worth more than that now. If you know anything about them please let me know. Thanks.

Strings don't really go up in value as a collectable unless they are really really old (think civil war era). Using paper between strings is not that old, D'addario used to do that about 10 years ago when the strings came in small paper envelopes. You can try taking them to an antique dealer or a music store that specializes in vintage equipment. However, they will still need to make profit on the strings on their resale, so you would probably not get much for them. You can try putting them on Ebay also. New strings on average cost around $5-$10 currently. Phospher bronze is still a current string type in production, so your strings will not be considered rare or obscure. I did find your strings for sale on a foreign website, the link is below. They were also on Ebay, but it's no longer posted.
