Is it worth to give 1000$+ for an Indonisian or MIM guitar ? Remember the past !!

    Yeah man, the guitar is one of the eziest instruments to string three notes together. To master this great instrument is a real challenge...

    Yeah, inflation basically, plus lately everything seems to cost more because of shipping issues, workforce shortages, etc. Thankfully I have all the guitars I need, and if I buy anything else it will usually be done with music store gift cards, which is all I ask for for my bday and xmas!

    Buying used is where it’s at.

    Stuff costs more. Of course it’s relative too. Many higher dollar guitars haven’t gone up as much. Martin has remained fairly steady as have Gibson. I bought a 335 in November and it was priced at $3,300, and 4 years ago when I bought the same one and it was $3,200. I got it for lower than that but those are prices on the tag.
