No, even those don't. They hold their value when bought used....like any guitar. They were sold 1500€ and now they go for 1000€ top. I've bought my Tribute Plus 430€ brand new, they go for 400/450€ on the used market (because of the increased price). It is kinda good, don't you think ? As for Gibson, they also lose their value, there are a ton of studios on the used market here for 700€ when they are sold 1000€ brand new. That's also a money drop. Used american strats go for 600€ to 1000€, when they are sold 1300€ new. MiM are sold 500€ brand new, they go for 350€ used. Unless you buy a top on the line and rare edition guitar, especially used, you will lose money, and you might lose more from more expensive guitars !
