Why are my prices not locked?
With a backorder list of approximately 7-8 years, I am not comfortable with projecting the future value/prices of my guitars. The prices at the left are the prices that I would charge had you ordered a guitar in the past without a locked price. These are basically reference prices.
I find pricing to be a tough assignment. What I have found by tracking the resale of my guitars (in mint condition) over the last 40 years is that they have typically sold for more than my current list price, often for substantially more than their original selling price.
The prices that I have charged for my instruments have increased approximately 10% annually, on average, for the last 20 years. Though, the price increases between 2007 and 2012 averaged 5%.
