The amazingly robust reddit.com/r/guitar community is hosting an interesting conversation about guitar prices, “Is there a point where a guitar just becomes simply over priced?.” In an age where you can spend more on a Gibson reissue than on a decent used car, the answer seems to be a resounding, OF COURSE. But the opposite position has a surprising amount of support. User nobodygivesafuckk (!) describes a fleeting meeting with Vince Gill’s $12,000 Kelton Swade strat:
5 years and hundreds of guitars played later, nothing else has come anywhere close, both tone-wise as well as playability.

So yeah, I guess you get what you pay for.
