Swirl,Tribute,Custom and Parts-Banez Guitars
Has any1 noticed the HUGE market price decrease on the above guitars ?
I mean, most arent even worth the Dollar Value in parts anymore !
Long gone are the days of a fully-cleared Jem Swirl getting over $400...
Even the Herc's and OOTS Swirls have taken a hit.
I have also noticed that the Parts-Banez's and Tributes are at GIVE-AWAY prices.
All u have to do is look at the FS Forums,most guitars that cost $800 to put together and finish, using most new parts arent even worth $500 or even less lately ?
More and more persons are more than willing to do it themselves,understandbly,as thats the most fun bit !
With Site-Advice and YouTube,i suppose it was only a matter of time.
What impact will all this have on the backyard builders and the follow-on with the Parts Suppliers ?
Most of the above creations arent even worth the parts and are even harder to sell.
