Mike Gutierrez, ISA AM
Mike Gutierrez’s adult career has been immersed in pop culture! As early as the late 1960s he began buying, playing, trading & selling “old” guitars before the business eventually blossomed into the “vintage guitar” business. This groundwork plus his auction background gave him the opportunity to become Consignment Director for Heritage Auctions Vintage Guitar department for 10 years. Collecting sports memorabilia since his first card show in 1979 had grown to such a passion that he switched into the sports memorabilia business and have since coupled sports, entertainment & musical instruments into his expertise.

Matthew Hill, ISA
Matthew Hill has a Masters and a Ph.D. in organology, the academic study of musical instruments. Matthew appraises musical instruments of all kinds, from the common such as guitars and pianos, to the more unusual, such as harpsichords, bagpipes, ukuleles, pipas, church bells, didgeridoos, and many others. If it makes a sound, he has probably appraised one. He is also qualified to appraise musical ephemera, such as posters, artwork, costumes, etc., and has a particular affinity for instruments and objects with celebrity associations (which in many cases can greatly add to the value.) Matthew’s client list includes rock stars, universities and major museums from around the world.
