    How else are you going to overinflate the price by $1000?

    No resistance? No resistance at all?

    Damn! I need to buy that guitar! All these years, it's the resistance that's been holding me back, I know it!

    A rereading:

    Statement:

    OUR VAULTS ARE TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY CONTROLLED CREATING THE PERFECT ENVIRONMENT FOR THE CONTINUAL AGING OF OUR GUITARS…


    Translation:

    We're located in Arizona meaning it gets pretty hot and dry. We try to keep the store humidity at 35 to 40% buy every time someone walks thru the front door the air dries out.

    That mean the guitars are constantly being exposed to extreme changes.

    Statement:

    EVERY GUITAR WE SELL IS HAND-SELECTED, RECEIVES OUR FAMOUS FULL SETUP, IS PROFESSIONALLY AGED & PRESERVED IN OUR VAULT AND FULLY EVALUATED, BEFORE GOING UP FOR SALE…

    Translation:

    So we must constantly do fret dressings. readjust the action and tweak the truss rods to make the guitar playable.

    Statement:

    EVERY GUITAR WE SELL IS HAND-SELECTED, RECEIVES OUR FAMOUS FULL SETUP, IS PROFESSIONALLY AGED & PRESERVED IN OUR VAULT AND FULLY EVALUATED, BEFORE GOING UP FOR SALE…



    Translation:
    Since we ask so much for our guitars they sit in the store for a long time.



    Statement:

    THE GUITAR’S BODY, NECK & FINISH BREATH, AGE, DRY & SETTLE OVER TIME, MAKING THE GUITAR BETTER & BETTER AS TIME GOES ON…


    Translation:

    This means that because of the extremes in temperature change when the guitar does finally sell the guitar has finally settled in and the wood will not fluctuate as when the guitar was newer.

    Today I saw a $60 bag of dog food being sold for $277 on amazon
    I see that regularly, items going for 5 to 10 times their value.
    Yawn
    So, now this is a new thing. "aging"

    The vault storage conditions may have some impact. The tone could get too chewy, or too much barnyard .... but its really the terroir that matters.
