Doylestown Gold Exchange & Jewelers has just acquired a vintage Fender Jaguar guitar. This is an incredibly cool instrument. It’s also a rather rare guitar, and a true collector’s showpiece.
The Fender Jaguar was produced for 13 years, beginning in 1962. It introduced a number of sonic features that were designed to lure guitar players away from Gibson, which was one of the company’s main competitors at the time.
The Beach Boys’ Carl Wilson was one of the best-known guitarists who played with a Fender Jaguar during the instrument’s salad days. Indeed, the Jaguar’s earliest burst of popularity came directly from the mid-60s surf rock scene.
In the 1980s, years after Fender had cancelled production of the Jaguar, the guitar experienced an unexpected resurgence of popularity in the punk rock and new wave scenes.
But it wasn’t until the introduction of alternative rock and indie rock in the 1980s and 90s that the Jaguar’s social currency — not to mention the financial value of vintage Jaguar models, like the one we recently acquired — truly began to explode.

It may be tough to admit, but the holiday season can be a stressful time of year.
There are office parties to plan for, and family gatherings at home to cook and clean for.
If your kids have school events to attend during the season, you’ll probably find yourself needing to pick up at least a few extra presents or party supplies.
And if you’re traveling out of town to spend Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or New Year’s with family, you’ve either got plane tickets to buy or gas tanks to fill up.

Ah, the holiday season! For some of us, it’s perhaps the most jubilant time of year — one filled with the joys of giving and receiving.
But for others, it’s a nonstop shopping excursion filled with frustration and second-guessing. For men especially, it can be tough to know exactly what to buy for the various women in their lives: our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, wives, fiancées.
So with that in mind, here’s a can’t-miss tip for holiday season shopping: No matter what sort of woman you’re shopping for, fine jewelry is definitely one the safest gift-buying moves you can make. It’ll also be one of the most appreciated.

According to Greg Glemser, a graduate gemologist and one of the three co-owners of Doylestown Gold Exchange & Jewelers, the customers who come into his shop with coin collections in tow almost always arrive with some variation of the same question: “What exactly do I have here?”
How Do You Know What Your Coin Collections Are Really Worth?
That’s a perfectly logical question to ask, and if you’ve ever been on the receiving end of an old and potentially valuable coin collection yourself, you’ll probably understand why.
Part of the answer, of course, is that most of us simply don’t know a whole lot about the value of coins. (Seriously: How many hardcore coin collectors do you know?)
The rest of the answer has to do with the way in which coin collections tend to appear in people’s lives.

If you’ve lived in the Bucks County or Montgomery County areas for any length of time, you’re probably familiar with the Best of Bucks readers’ choice contest that’s organized annually by the Bucks County Courier Times. Our local Doylestown newspaper, The Intelligencer, runs its own readers’ choice contest each year as well — it’s known as the Best of Bucks-Mont.
Every autumn, both papers list the community’s favorite businesses, products and services, and this year, Doylestown Gold Exchange & Jewelers came out on top in not one but two different categories. To say that we’re both humbled and incredibly grateful would be a huge understatement.
In The Intelligencer’s Best of Bucks-Mont poll, we were honored as “One of the Best Jewelry Stores” in the two-county region. Which isn’t bad for a shop that’s been in business for less than three years! Some of you may remember we actually won the very same honor in last year’s contest.
But much to our surprise, both papers awarded us the top prize in a brand-new category, Best Gold & Precious Metal Buyers.
