Many of my fave guitarists weighing in on differences between the 2. If memory
serves me right Leo Fender guitars in that range are in the $200,000,00 category
A 61 Flame Burst Les Paul $300,000.00. How many Patek Phillipe Calatravas can
that buy?
Crazy money for those guitars. Even '70s era Fenders and Gibsons which weren't exactly known for QC are soaring higher and higher. I have a '70 Strat that is climbing in value to the point I'm more and more tempted to sell it. I mean it's not even that great a guitar. I have less valuable Fenders that are lighter, more comfortable, sound as good or better and that I play more. Why aren't vintage Rickenbackers appreciating at a higher rate? I can pick up a mid-'60s 360 for $4K!
