“The Million Dollar Les Paul”. It talked about the ‘58 - ‘59 Bursts being sold for higher and higher prices. The author’s position was that there would soon be a Burst sold for over one million dollars US.
Anybody heard of that happening yet?
This has always been a thought. But I think this used to be more about the thing itself, the "toys", than some future sales value. I'm envious of the neighbors classic Corvette because he gets to drive around in a classic Corvette, not because he could sell it some day.Maybe those with the most toys wins. Nah
Yeah, like this!As best I can remember investments were business related: stocks which are business ownership, bonds which are loans for business purpose, property which was not your primary residence, commodiies which are used for business. I know there is much more.
Everything else was just stuff you buy and use. Exception was the primary home which was an "investment" in your future security through elimination of monthly house payment.
What triggered me was an article suggesting now is the time to sell your house because of possible peak. That would be great except for the question; where do I live? Same with all of our discussion of music gear prices. If I sell my gear what do I do for a hobby? Sell my used car for top dollar and ride the bus? At least I won't have a guitar and amp to carry on the bus, I sold those.
If that came across as cynical I've failed as a writer; it was as dispassionate, if incomplete, a description of a deplorable and rather frightening reality as I could manage.Yep, that's cynical, but I agree.
What annoys me is all the talk about networking, like your friends are acquired resources for you to use.
