Because of the thread I posted about the first 1958 Les Paul Burst being up for sale for $625K, I was doing some reading and owners were talking about how they bought one in the 70's for $600 (no "K") and people thought they were crazy to pay $600 at the time. Now their guitars are worth a minimum of 100 times that and, of course #1 is probably worth 1,000 times that. My father has often said, cars like the '57 Chevy Bel Air were just ordinary cars people drove to work in the 50's and 60's and if you could spot what the current car is that will become that kind of collectible, you'd have an investment (as I recall, he thought it was the Pontiac Fiero...but the theory still works). I have always said that guitars are the best investment bet among collectibles. Anyhow, what current production guitar could you buy and put away as a "closet classic" that would be worth big bucks in 30 years? Hint: it won't be a Fender, because Fender has flooded the market with too many models and variations and low-end lookalikes.
