I was just curious as to why Warwick basses seem to take a rather large hit when it comes to their depreciation. Used Warwicks go for a much lower percentage of their original price than most other basses, it seems. This shocks me, as the German-made Warwicks are amazing instruments. Could anybody shed some light on this for me?
A lot of instruments take a hit when sold, not just Warwicks. Spectors, Alembics, almost anything that isn't overly hyped or rare+in demand.
I know that everything depreciates. It just seems like warwicks drop to like 60% of their original value, if not lower. Other instruments seem to retain more of their value, at least having looked at the classifieds.
