Just curious what the cut-off was for that sorta thing... Just guessing in the 70's and even EARLY 80's there might be a 1953-1964 Fender hanging on the wall for a fraction of the price nowadays adjusted for inflation... I guess what I'm really asking is "when did the prices start to go up like crazy on pre-CBS?" What even was it? Like $500 for a 1961 Strat slab board in 1976 lol? So using inflation calculator = $2430 in today's dollars. That was a ton of money in 1976 like buying a new CS but a far cry from adding a zero to the end of it and X2 lmao!
