The State of the Vintage Guitar Market

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The vintage and used guitar market is in a unique place. Prices on iconic instruments soared prior to the recession and have been in steady decline since. Modern manufactures have not stopped producing new instruments, and since used guitars do not typically depreciate in quality, there are arguably more guitars on the market now than demand dictates. Simultaneously, the decades-long decline of the rock band as a standard of popular music means younger generations lack the reverence for guitars felt by their parents. We'll explore the current market, where it's headed, and how musicians can take advantage of the situation to land fantastic vintage gear for themselves.
