Why would I buy a vintage guitar over a new guitar?
September 24, 2013
You know I've been asked recently "why would I buy a vintage guitar over a new guitar?" and there are many answers to that, but to sum it up I would say that Vintage guitars are works of art, that in many regards are superior in comparison to new guitars. Vintage guitars are great to play, attractive to display, they have a history, and are fun to collect. Vintage guitars provide a tone that you normally won’t find in new guitars.Whether you are a new or seasoned musician, or just a guitar enthusiast in general, vintage guitars are a tempting alternative to new, off-the-line guitars. Vintage guitars are also good investments. They tend not to lose value with time. Rather, a vintage guitar that is kept in good condition will in most cases consistently gain value as it gets older. So when making that decision to buy new or vintage, it is in my opinion, that when you find the right vintage guitar for you that it will not only protect your investment, but when you sit down to play that special tune there is some soul behind it!
