George Gruhn says the price of nearly every guitar skyrockets when individuals who turn 40-50 (ish) begin having more disposable income and desire to purchase the guitars (cars?) depicted on posters that were on their walls as kids. Likely something to that thought. George also says that the best electrics were buit in the 50's. He says second best is "right now". I think (not his thoughts but mine) that many times when people are living in a "Golden Age", they do not recognize it. Guitarists in the late 50'sdid not recognize that 1958-1960 was a golden age...and they seemingly do not know it now. Ditto with pre-war Martin acoustics. (And right now). Human nature that the grass is always greener (in the future and by looking back to the past great guitars). I think there are several being made right now that are future great ones. The 2019 1959 R9 60th may be one of those someday. There are likely enough of them and they are recognized as high enough quality to not ascend to true "million dollar" (todays money) guitars in the future but they are GREAT ones.This goes way beyond guitars, look what people pay for 70s and 80s cars now. Which let's be frank were pretty much shit as far as quality goes. People will like what they like.
