Tedster Posted November 29, 2003 Share Posted November 29, 2003 I remember back in the early 80s, Ibanez came out with damn-near-perfect copies of the Korina Explorer and Flying V. Gibson got p.o.ed, and either threatened to sue them or actually did. Those guitars, hence, became quite collectible, as Ibanez had to pull 'em. We all know of the hefty price tags fetched by old Gibsons, Fenders, Gretsches, etc...U.S. made guitars. My first Gibson was a '66 non-reverse Firebird, three P-90s. I sold it to buy a '64 reverse, because at the time, the non-reverse model wasn't sought after. Do you ever foresee a time when foreign-made guitars will become sought after collectibles? And, before you answer, consider that most sought after collectibles are in fact thus because no one would have thought a few years prior they would become sought after collectibles...
