Aw man, I've finally achieved dream of being vintage!
You and me both brother!
I always though the first qualifier of vintage status was being 25+ years old. The second qualifier was quality. If it's junk then it's just old junk. If it's quality, and built with care and skill, then it's vintage. .
If you think about it...if the item lasted 25-30 years, was even really sh!tty?
I have seen old old Kmart brand guitars go for $15-20, that were unplayable firewood. I don't know how bad they were in the 1960's, but how these items survive every winter not being burned for fuel is beyond my level of understanding. I think once the item reaches a certain age, a minority of people attribute more value, but those people also don't really want to spend a lot of money.
I have a couple of amplifiers over 25 years old, are those "vintage?" No, they are just big enough to make moving them a pain, but square enough that storing them is not much of a pain.
I guess we will say if they/it functions! hahaha
I had an early 90's Recto and certainly did not consider that to be vintage
This thread makes me feel ancient.
In case anyone wants to see my "no-longer vintage" and "now ancient" Gibson L-12, this is a link to my twitter page. You can see it in the banner and in the avatar:
