I think he does contribute to the scalper market.Of course he would want that money if he can get it, but doesn’t the super-fast flip and massive price hike put Trogly in the scalper category in this instance?
good luck on your quest. I owned a 1982 FF82 which was a special run for Frankfurt Fair 1982. This was the most resonant motherfucker I ever had my hands on.
one in natural surfaced in Germany, way overpriced but nice: https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/vintage-1983-gibson-korina-explorer-natural/1864240118-74-9344
I think I must be old fashioned, because I’d prefer Gibson to manufacture enough of any given guitar to satisfy the demand from buyers, charge a reasonable price from which the company can make proportionate profit, and to hell with all the scalpers and used guitar dealers.It is 100% market pricing… but then again, Gibson see the prices their limited run guitars go for on the used market… why should they not get a share of that?
