If your a collector of gibson guitars or any vintage guitars you will probably agree with me that they are difficult to find , the supply is very low and the demand is extremely high ,
and its not because vintage guitars are better built than modern gibson guitars , its because every vintage guitar or shall I say old guitar is unique in its own way , theres no 2 alike , and they carry their own history along with them . The buyer must decide " how much do I love this instrument and how much do I value it " .
Vintage Guitars Vs New Guitars
Its not true that old gibson guitars are built better , new gibson guitars are built and sound awesome just like their vintage guitars , many guitar players buy vintage guitars to capture the exact feel and sound of the 50s , 60s or even 70s which can be immitated today but not duplicated .
However , it doesnt mean they are better ,its also a matter of taste , many guitarist prefer the sound and dynamics of todays guitars .
Vintage guitars also have a big advantage vs new guitars because they keep on gaining value as for new guitars its like buying a car , they depreciate as soon as you walk out of the music store.
But then again there are many musicians who like to buy their guitars new with all papers and guarantees , which is a smart way to buy too .
