So I've been wondering, and since I'm not very knowledgable on the subject of vintage guitars I figure I'll ask- Vintage guitars, let's say telecasters specifically, are highly sought after and valuable; and I would assume part of that value is because they aren't so readily available... But are they actually rare? They're a mass produced item where hundreds if not thousands were/are produced a year. They're typically not considered disposable, perishable, or particularly fragile- so I would think the majority of the guitars made in any year would still be knocking around many many years later... And fender has been making them for 65 years (well 24 if you want to make 1974 the cutoff for "vintage"). Why aren't we tripping over vintage telecasters? Where did they all go, what was their fate?
