Edit: Wrong link. Try searching used guitars, under the brands you have.

Also, if you know the exact model, you could try google. They're lots of guides to musical pricing. You can find some of them here: http://www.fretnotguitarrepair.com/instrumentvalue.htm

Try looking up local appraisers in your area. NOT antique dealers. Insurance appraisers will tell you how much to insure something for.

However, unless they are in really good shape, come from some very famous and documentable background or are simply extremely rare they are probably not worth much.

He's right. Though, you could have someone fix them up, at a cheap price. This could stimulate more money. Depending.
