like with the stock market usually the vintage guitar market follows, I feel the bottom of the market was 2-3 years back now since that's when I was aggressively buying. Now I'm seeing asking prices that are way out there, I'm on the hunt again but with these current asking prices I'm left scratching my head..... the economy is in ruin right now, far worse then the 08 crash, and yet my pre-cbs gear is valued much higher then it was 3 years ago. So are we going to wait another 6 years to hit the bottom again, or are these asking prices pipe dreams? If I was to ask what others are asking for similar pre cbs strats as my own it would've gained almost 50% value, I'm just not seeing it. What do those on the forum think? Sorry I haven't been active much lately, but work and this plague has had me busy.
