It's always fascinating (to me) watching the used pricing trends on Boutique guitars. Sure it is all about supply and demand to a large degree (we've seen prices sky-rocket on guitars that suddenly become unavailable to purchase new) but another phenomena I find strange and interesting is the way "hype" can temporarily effect pricing. I say "temporarily" because eventually used pricing does get established as to what guitars actually sell for typically here and on ebay... I've joked around before with a famous (and I'll leave his name out of it) guitar maker that all one needs is a super nice website with amazing looking pictures and 4 or 5 people on the Gear Page raving about their guitars to drive a Guitar's prices up both new and used. Of course there is more to it than that but there is some truth there. And of course none of that can really drive long-term success. The other thing I find fascinating is how pricing doesn't always equal quality (of course just my opinion). We'll see some guitars on the Emporium that barely last a few hours sold quickly while others can stay for sale for weeks despite endorsees or builders giving rave reviews. Anyone else fascinated by this kind of thing?
