Which is why more folks buy Strats and Teles - fine guitars and very versatile but NOT LP’s - I just never bonded with them after I played my first LP through a Marshall. It might be a smaller amp and a boutique clone now, bits it’s still the “British” sound! And while you can play Strat and Tele songs on a LP, the reverse just does not hold true, IMO. I think the entire music business has peaked, like the movie business. Entertainment delivery is very different now - please write that down for future reference! If I ever need to sell my guitars I imagine I - or my surviving wife - will not get what I paid for them, unless inflation really takes off! Luckily I didn’t buy for resale. It IS a shame that the resale market has deflated, for sellers at least! I have been buying “other” guitars lately - an Anderson, an artist Jaguar, my RI aged CS Tele, acoustics; to “round out” my tonal options. Maybe others have been doing the same. I think the changes in the industry and the spread of “indie” and “post-pop” have driven a lot of the change in guitar buying. Most indie bands don’t make enough to buy expensive, much less vintage guitars, they don’t aspire to be “guitar heros” and they use so many effects that you couldn’t tell the difference in a Strat vs a LP unless you are very trained and astute. And folks like Jack White have promoted cheap over good for a while now. I am not slamming effects - I have a significant pedal board. But when I read an interview with the lady from Wye Oak and she says she doesn’t write songs with a guitar or a piano - but messing around with effects to get “sounds” she can build into a song - then I know where this is headed and it scares me! But I still play regularly with younger musicians who love classic rock and that encourages me, about them, at least.
