Honda's always run cheaper than Bentleys.
If it is a vintage guitar then that's part of it's pedigree and history and imagine the stories the guitar could tell about the road that was traveled before she winded up in your hands . My 1969 Fender Telecaster Custom (double bound Alder body , Killer large profile neck with flame which does not show on the image , dead mint ) I found her at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville , which was at an exhibit for Mr. Gruhn at Belmont University . So I stalked her from March 2019 until early August 2019 when I had the funds to pull the trigger and the beauty part was she waited for me to bring her home . I always wondered about the stories she could tell and imagined her working on Music Row in Nashville and what country artist (s) used her in the studio , live in a club/arena /theater and such . She certainly has wear , and tear and such , but that just adds to her rich history and is to be expected for an instrument over 52 years old .
Well, I will take anything that looks similar to this
(& I will pay handsomely for a 70s Standard in Pelham.)
I only buy guitars with defects.
I do agree.
Wouldn't your belt buckle have helped to increase the value of that guitar? "Road worn by Marshall Forum legend" must mean top dollars.
Not sure if he was wearing his Marshall forum Moderator t shirt or not.
He probably gets tired of all the fans.
I have never been much into relic'ed guitars. Once a guitar starts to look like it needs re-finishing, I refinish it.
Of course, if its a Les Paul from the 50's or something I wouldn't.
If you like the relic thing that's okay, though.
If a regular used guitar has a few battle scars then that's life. If it looks totally beat up, though, I would not buy it unless it was major discounted. That's me.
I got a PRS for a low price because it was pretty beat up. Then I refinished it.
Yeah, I never understood that concept.
As long as 'visible defects' doesn't mean major gashes or cracks and the playability and tone of the guitar are not affected, no problem!
No, it wouldn't decrease its worth if the price you pay reflects the condition at purchase.
Yes, I would still feel good about it, especially if it meant that I'm getting a good sounding, quality guitar for a price that I can actually afford to pay!
Hope it works out for you.
