Almost daily a new thread is started bemoaning the price of guitar related items. As best I can recall this has been way before any current global economy issue.
I can’t think of another recreation population I’m around which talks so much about cost. My individual experience is guitar is more affordable than snow skiing, golfing, mountain biking, shooting. And my guess is motor sports and boating are significantly more expensive.
$ 450 Million?
Gosh, he must have sold all his guitars!
Btw: Is that 450 CDN or 450 Greenbacks?

They work part time jobs for minimum wage, saving up to get 'their dream guitar' only to find the price has just gone up another twenty percent!
Well I guess it is if you can't afford a roof over your head or food on table, then $400-500 would be a luxury that you can't afford.

(I do realize I'm fortunate.)
fundamental difference:now skiing, golfing, mountain biking,
