Let me add one more thing and then I'll stay silent: I know a lot about math and stats.
Perhaps....

But, your comments that US politicians are lazy and the US healthcare system is 3rd world is either a hateful political bias or an uniformed opinion. Either way, Americans don't like being lectured or talked down to by "Euro-types..." ( Or anybody else on the planet for that matter. :laugh2: )

US politicians are NOT lazy, they are inclided to do too much...continually breaking things that are fine or further breaking things that are already broken.

If you think the US has a 3rd world healthcare system it just illustrates you know nothing about 3rd world countries or the US.

Ok, back to our regularly scheduled vintage guitar programing...

my opinion....depends how long this virus stuff lasts

it wont be a light switch speed back to what we were but overall and for collectible pricing i think its obvious it will take somewhat of an equal hit

but then like the virus how long will it affect that market.....who knows?...

its early, im gonna sit and watch but i would like to catch a dip in early 50's lps players :fingersx:

Watch the numbers, then buy when everything is in ruins.
I'm buying like there's no tomorrow....because....maybe there wont be. :laugh2:

You can die with the Coronavirus, alone, with no family, friends, or loved ones around...but the upshot is, you could play yer bitchin' vintage guitar. (Assuming you have any motor reflexes...)

Oh, and you folks playing along at home...I actually like Bernard (HOSS) a lot. So don't take my comments as mean spirited.

I could probably afford a players grade early goldtop if I sell all but my #1 guitar. But what's a man to do with only 2 guitars?

I would say the patient (aka the Vintage Market) is alive but not so chipper any more. Contacting the sellers by email is the norm, since they aren't in their shops, except when necessary. The stores I have dealt with in the past have an inventory problem. They can't visit little old ladies to purchase vintage guitars their (deceased) husbands bought. I can't seem to find decent 1958-64 Byrdlands anywhere. Gibson ES-335 and Fender Strat prices are still stiff with little wiggle room. The sellers have not adjusted to the new reality of the economy tanking, big time.
