I don’t think it is. Maybe here at the HFC with all us BAMFs LOL. Essentially I think the there are less guitar players today, and for seven decades the manufacturers had been building as much as they could. That leaves us with seven decades of used instruments with fewer players and a flooded used instrument market.
Im not going to debate the economy, I’ve better things to do. All I’ll say is my portfolio is is doing better the last three years than it has since the ‘80s and ‘90s, and not just marginally better, but insanely GREAT.
