So I am really thinking about getting a vintage Tele/Esquire. About to sell a house and my wife wanted to get me something nice. Her thought was a watch. I’m thinking, I’ve got some nice watches how about a guitar? She thought I see Antiques Roadshow, maybe? I said jokingly a 59 Les Paul Burst, she said how much are those? More than what we will make. Lol So I just wanted to know what would be a good first vintage to get into? Was born in 67 so there is that option. Is there anything to say no way to i.e. Refin, not original tuners, stuff like that? Would really love to just jump in and get a Blackguard. Would be more, but would it be a safer place for money? (knowing that is all speculation.) But still I would think the Blackguards would go up faster than others even through ups and downs. This would be something I keep and possibly pass on to my son or if I can’t play anymore sell at that point. Hopefully 50 years from now. Lol. But are there other years that are more desirable than others, like 57 over a 59 or a 63 over a 65? Also this will not go into a case. I plan on playing this guitar just like I would my others.
