1 ThePolecats 2 months ago The 1950s and '60s seem like a long time ago to many of us, especially if we weren't around then but it's a drop in the bucket in the time continuum. I was thinking about relic guitars, real relics from the mid century rather than ones you make yourself these days. I was thinking what about the relics of the pharos that were found in the great Pyramids and other ancient sites of the world that are thousands of years old. It's hard to speculate where these vintage guitars will be thousands of years from now or even one hundred years from now. So far vintage mid century guitars are in demand even though most of us find these guitars beyond our paygrade. Will even in 100 years will guitars not be in demand and these vintage guitars won't be desired by people? Maybe a few relics in a museum here and there? Will these guitars even be a thought in a thousand years? Maybe a guitar will be taken out of a 100 year or 1,000 year Time Capsule. Speculating about this probably won't be very accurate but it's interesting to think about where will these expensive mid century vintage guitars be in 100 or even farther 1,000 years, or even non vintage guitars like my Fender Classic Player '60s Strat. Wonder about my 1965 Gretsch Country Club or my 1966 Mosrite Mark V? We won't be around for that so who knows.
