• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Corpse -

those Yarin are some of the finest LP type guitars the world will ever see ...

I could lie on your floor unnoticed

Had heard every word of his song
With the moonlight helping along

here is just an example ........ 3800 bucks to start and the guy is open to offers

nice year ,,,,,,, nice and light ... dark finger board ..... some horizontal flame .... a few tiny marks - and nice after market pups

if he would take 3600 - thats not so bad in this day and age

if these 58s with hide glue and custom buckers drop to about 3200 that makes them pretty sweet

I think buyers are about to find themselves in a fantastic situation


With all due respect, one or two “for sale” posts does not a market make. And cherry picking data points to promote an erroneous narrative is something better left to the Fake News propagandists.

Does this 2014 R8 listed for $5999 mean it’s a seller’s market?


Empirically it would seem the market for many discretionary items is contracting a bit after the free money boom. The weight of runaway inflation and monetary tightening can do that. But I wouldn’t call it a buyers market. Just a return to a bit more equilibrium.

Whiplash effect. The Fed/Congress pumped trillions into the economy, and now it's gone. I see soft prices in Porsche 911's and RVs, and it would not be a surprise to see the Custom Shop prices softening. Hence the "soft landing" narrative. Just realize we have never had a soft landing after such a huge monetary pump up. Right now it certainly pays to wait for a better deal. These moments don't come often and they are short lived. I would not mind having a second R9 and set it up for slide. Yes, that's it!

.

erroneous narrative ?

there are 58 reissues all over Reverb - 2013 and later - with custom buckers and hide glue

$ 3800 bucks or less and they are open to excepting "offers"

all things being equal you get even less if its 2012

they are just sitting - unsold

call it a buyers market - others call it the " Whiplash effect " .... still other call it " a return to equilibrium "

Says it's made of solid wood. That's a game changer.
