Not true. Prices are going down finally. The bubble is bursting. The recession will drive prices way down when it hits.SurfGreen wrote: Man, that makes it that much better with the finish being original!
That thing will look 100 percent better to once the Jag control plates go back on along with that pickguard you're looking for.
Think that will be an actual tortoise guard from the sixties that will end up on that baby?
That would look awesome. I wonder why the Guitar Centers around Michigan don't have such deals.
I guess it pays to be in the right place at the right time.
I know that's how it was when I bought that Princeton amp of mine. It's a 1964. As soon as I saw it, I put a hold on it.
Same thing with the reverb unit.
The vintage guitars are getting harder and harder to even get a chance to get a bid on, let alone see in person.
Do a completed listings search for "Fender" in musical instruments on eBay and sort by "price- highest first."
There is nearly a whole page of vintage strats and teles that did not sell or even get a single bid at prices they would've sold for 2 years ago or even a year ago. Once the recession hits, if it hits, it's only going to get more that way. The perfect all-original examples will likely stay high, but the bubble will burst on the re-finned and modded ones.
I've already been talking to my wife, and if prices get low enough, I'm going to do what I have to do to get a 60s strat refin.
