I recently picked up this guitar: It plays great and looks fine. It's from the Experience 2016 display. It turns out that PRS has just built another one almost identical: for sale at MusicZoo. Check the price: $13k!!! Now, what I paid is less than 1/2 that. 3 years ago PS guitars were $9-10k, you'd lose maybe $3-4K if you had to sell. Now people are losing maybe $7k on a guitar that's a couple of years old? Who can afford to do that? And with used PS prices staying about the same for the last 10 years (ie in the $5-6k range) you can't really bank on the fact that retail price is going up to pull up the price of your used guitar. This is a case where I just can't see an argument for buying new, no matter how much you love the guitar.
