    Are you contemplating culling the herd?:hmm:
    You should put up a website, and post some outrageous prices :wtf: to see if you get any offers you can't refuse.:shock:

    It was replaced with We Buy Houses. Same concept. They give you 50% of fair market value and act they’re doing you a favor.

    I think 48th Street became too expensive of a place to do biz.
    All the music stores are gone from there now ?

    '89 I was stationed in NYC from Oct to Mar 90
    I got a Les Paul Custom at WE BUY and a '67 Flyin V reissue at Sam Ash

    Newbie here, but saw this post and wanted to share what I know. One of the owners retired I believe a few years back, the other opened a new store called Davidson's Well Strung Guitars on Long Island

    A lot of the old vintage dealers have closed their doors.

    I noticed before I let my subscription to "Vintage Guitar" lapse a few years ago there was far fewer advertisers taking out ads with them, used to be they had full-page ads, now it's just a small classified-type ad ad with a website address.

    Even Gruhn's has changed, last time I looked it seems they have more new guitars for sale than vintage stuff, it used to be just the opposite.
