Have an old Gibson Explorer Bass (80's?) that the finish is starting to show cracks in. I am wondering if I should sell it while it still has collectors value, before it gets to the point where maybe it starts to loose it's value? I have seen many "husks"" on e-bay of potentially collectible Gibsons where, apparently, they got past the point of keeping whole, and were stripped out. I have had it for years, and it plays well. Nothing else wrong with it that I am aware of except for the finish. It may have gotten dried out a little having moved to a tiny apartment with forced air heat and being a little to close to an outlet.
