I think it's the combination of how sweet they look, the good buzz about their quality and the relatively few of them available for sale. Those factors all drive up prices.

A patient person can find Maldens for around $300. Reverends, not so much.

Thing is, I've been watching them- and other brands- on Reverb, eBay and other sites, and I have been surprised how many guitars I would compare to Revs in quality- Godins, for instance- going for those lowball prices recently. Given their relative company sizes, this perplexes me.

Perhaps it IS that visual mojo keeping their resale prices higher...

Probably. People like guitars that look cool. A Malden Bulldozer or Godin (aside from the Sessions) just isn't that visually appealing.

Then again, I thought my main guitar was butt-ugly when I first saw it, so I guess sound and feel do a lot to make up for the visual factor.
