An enormous collection of vintage guitars are going up for auction in the city, and collectors will be looking to take their pick.

Guernsey's auction house is selling 265 guitars, some dating back to the mid to late 1800's like a 1890's Washburn Style 309 Grand Concert edition.

The guitars belong to a collector based in California who has spent close to 40 years building up his cache of six-strings.

The crown jewel might be a rare 1930 Martin OM-45 Deluxe.

The auction will take place April 2 and 3 at the Bohemian National Hall on the Upper East Side.

Among other instruments for sale are classics from D'Angelico, Gibson and other famous makers.

But you probably can't buy them for a song.
