More and more I'm seeing vintage gear with high price tags staying in stores for a long period of time before selling. I first noticed this with Gibson EB-2's, but there are others. There is a Danelectro that has been on the local Craig's list as long as I can remember. Of course, old P's and J's will always have value, but I'm beginning to wonder if the less popular models are losing value simply because every year there are less and less of us old guys wanting them. I grew up dreaming of EB-2s and Mosrites and Hagstroms and Coronados. I want them today mostly because I couldn't afford them when I was young - not because they are great instruments. I'm just fulfilling a fantasy. But new generations are coming along that don't have that desire and have lots of other options. Can't help but wonder if the market is declining for many of these instruments. And reissues are not helping. The new Fender Coronado basses are as nice or better than the old ones. Same with Guilds. Affordable Hofners are now a temptation. And there are plenty of hollow bodies that sound better than an EB2. Warwick comes to mind. Is there going to be a point where you don't want to get stuck with certain vintage models because the value will drop below what you paid and they will be impossible to sell?
