Well MK knows what Gibson will charge for them initially.

When the strats came out MK said he hoped there would be a more affordable Mexican version. That never happened.

I'd kill to get a Mexican MK Strat, that would be awesome.

So the question is, for what Signature 1958 MK Les Paul will sell after 15 years of laying in the collector's vaults? A million dollars? :lol

There’s still a question over what will happen in the future to instruments that are currently valuable.

Young people seem less interested in guitars these days.

I know, but people buying a guitar to learn in lockdown is not the same as shelling out 200 grand for a burst.

Tomorrow never knows... It's like Porsche Carrera GT, for a long time it was just another Porsche, but now it's like a $1M desirable supercar.

With guitars, yes, the interest seems to go down, but I have some friends in guitar stores and they say the interest is actually only raising up! I tend to look more optimistic at this. There are more and more people in the world, around 8 billion already, so things like guitars are never going to become extinct, the guitar will only become more and more popular.

Not so long ago Australian guitars Maton became available here in Russia, and I thought it would have mild success. But people buy Matons here like crazy, despite the fact that a lot of them priced like a reasonable used car.

Guitars can be tools to play but they can also be objects of desire, design pieces, unfulfilled dreams. Pavel is very much right about the 8bn. The world middle class is constantly growing and while some markets have saturated, new ones are coming up.

thanks Dusty for the info. Even if it's not the case, I dreamed of this connection between these two legends, and I wrote something :
