There's an incredible amount of used gear for sale. I'm not referring to the high priced vintage stuff, although there's plenty of that around, too. It's amazing the quantity of stringed instruments out there. Not to mention all the various outlets available that make purchasing it easy. I suspect more instruments will become available, as we - the last generation of aficionados - begin to downsize. Or exit stage-left for greener pastures. "I hereby do bequeath my collection to..." "Sell it all," exclaimed the family member that could care less for seasoned timber and tarnished metal. It seems that with the ever-shrinking number of people interested in playing guitars, coupled with the enormous quantity of used gear that's available, that if production of new product ceased today, it would still leave an abundance of instruments for many many years to come. To the point where supply grossly outweighs demand. Are we in the last days?
