Always interested in how the market moves around our favorite guitars.

Just watched a beautiful 2008 RS4 with Lollars not even get a bid with a starting price of $1,000.00.

You're right on target, Rob.   +1

I'm not trying to fan any flames here, but facts are facts - we are in one of the worst economic times in recent memory... just look at the price of some foods, the (real) number of people who are out of work, the number who are finding new jobs at 1/2 to 2/3 what they were earning before, and you realize we don't have a lot of discretionary money floating around out there.

(My wife is a "career transition consultant" - that's fancy lingo for coaching people who have lost their jobs on resume writing and interview techniques so they can "make finding their next job their next job." She sees 90% of those who do find another job (somewhere from 3-18 months time) earning less than they were previously. 

What little discretionary *borrowing* is going on is being used to continue to drive (or lease) nicer cars than most people can really afford; but people never learn and keep overspending and over-borrowing, keeping many of them in unnecessary debt. 

Guitars? Yeah, some people are buying them, but not the number who used to, and not as many as they used to. I'm one of 'em.
