    Anybody else notice that the 2019 Vinteras price are dropping drastically in reverb?

    two weeks ago they were all 999, today, most of the new ones are no more than 750.

    thoughts?

    It's what happens when supply is high and demand is low, especially when this happens suddenly for some reason....

    That's the rule:

    Prices go up, for no apparent reason.

    When prices go down, there's a reason all right.

    the graph showed the prices increasing for the used , I'm confused. I looked and immediately comprehend why the price were dropping
    there was a glut of fiesta red guitars and it became abundantly clear as to they price drop happened , were they inca silver? no! midnight blue? no!
    salmon pink ? no!

    I’d think if this were all virus related ALL guitars would be coming down in price...but that is t happening.

    only diff between the players and Vintera (besides color choices) are neck profiles, some switching capabilities, and bridge. I don’t consider the pickups as a big diff, but the players series are as good if not better than the Vintera.

    So yeah, we’re the neck carve, bridge, and switching worth 300.00 more?

    I’ve got a guitar listed on Reverb that I thought would go quick. Not even an offer. Too many people worried about their jobs or out of work.

    Good time to buy!

    I can't believe anybody who needs to work for a living and is not in the medical field is considering buying a new guitar right now. I've got one for sale on Reverb and I was thinking of taking it down, just no point since I'm not desperate.

    I bought a Gibson Les Paul Jr DC tribute last year from Sweetwater for $799.00. Guitar Center had them for $549.00, Talk about being bummed. I will never pull the trigger again for a new product from Gibson again.

    750.00 with 500.00 shipping is the typical pricing scheme on Reverb.

    You're thinking of Yahoo's and Triangles by The Refreshments, Corona was the theme song to Jackass.

    I've seen Vintera's on GC in the price range of $450 to $600. Keep checking.
